It ensures you will definitely hear how you have found your tube mic for life.

Classic microphone with modern features

The LCT 840, equipped with a precision-engineered 1" capsule, stands for exceptionally warm and classic tube sound. It offers highly nuanced and authentic sound reproduction in the studio and even onstage. 5 switchable polar patterns, 3 low-cut settings, and 3 pre-attenuations settings make the LCT 840 a highly versatile tool.

Honest tube sound
The dual triode 12AX7 tube delivers a warm and comforting sound with smooth high frequencies while still preserving the ability to cut through the mix. Low self-noise and high dynamic range exemplify how the LCT 840 is vintage design brought into the present.

The future of vintage
Innovation and heritage brought together

The LCT 840 is like its country of origin, Vienna, Austria - a mixture of old and new, traditional heritage and high-tech. We love rich tube sound, we and we love modern design. Combining them both in the LCT 840 is a dream come true for all recording professionals.

Our LC10 capsule
Precision taken to a whole new level

The externally polarized dual-diaphragm 1" capsule captures every nuance of your performance thanks to its 3-micron-thin, gold-layered, low-mass diaphragms. It can handle everything from vocals to full orchestras.
