The LCT 450 is the gateway to the world of large-membrane condenser microphones for everyone whos looking for the best performance at an affordable price!
The LCT 450 steps up to the plate with the LCT 540’s capsule and thus features a natural, authentic sound with first-class transient response due to the ultra-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, 1-inch diaphragm, while its cardioid polar pattern ensures effective rear sound rejection both onstage and in the studio. It comes with two-step switchable pre-attenuation for an ear-splitting maximum SPL of 173 dB at 20 dB of attenuation.
Two low-cut settings help to reduce unwanted low-frequency noise like wind, footsteps or the like. Clever features known from flagships like the LCT 640 or LCT 940 are also onboard, including automatic attenuation and clipping history – as well as, of course, the illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling in dark environments. All this, combined with the brilliant, clear and authentic sound that characterizes our recording microphones, has been packed into our well-known LCT 240 housing to ensure that the LCT 450 isn’t too dominant as an onstage overhead; studio users, on the other hand, will appreciate the appealing look that reflects its professional inner workings.
