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.

  • 0 dB-A self-noise from electronics and circuitry
  • Highly precise calibration of the capsule and the electronics – any two microphones from this series, set identically, will always form a matched pair at +/- 0 dB
  • 1-inch dual system externally biased capsule with an active front and ultra-thin, gold-layered low mass diaphragm for superior transient response
  • Tailored frequency response for rich and authentic sound on stage or in the studio
  • Cardioid polar pattern for effective isolation of the main sound source
  • Noiseless push buttons for attenuation and HPF selection
  • Max SPL of 143 dB for an impressive total dynamic range of 140 dB
  • 3-position switchable pre-attenuation pad (0 dB, 6 dB, and 12 dB) for handling extremely high soundw pressure levels and 3-position high-pass filter
  • Illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling even in dark environments
  • Noiseless pushbuttons for quick and easy attenuation and HPF selection
  • Clipping history, automatic attenuation and key-lock provide error-free recording and unparalleled ease of use
    Gold-plated 3-pin XLR output connector
  • Immune to electromagnetic interference thanks to transformerless preamplifier circuitry
  • Extra-large hexagonal ruthenium-galvanized steel-mesh grille provides an open acoustic environment and prevents unwanted internal reflections
  • Comes in a black carrying case; includes LCT 40 SHx shock mount, LCT 40 Wx windshield and DTP 40 Lb artificial leather bag
