Post by: David Pedd on October 07, 2019, 05:53:33 pm
I've seen it on several programs.

Any ideas?

I think it's a Lewitt Audio LCT either 240 or 440 but I am not certain. 
If it is a Lewitt it is not the standard paint job.

Thanks.

I've sent the pix to the company and asked them.  I appreciate your response.  I've never heard of that brand.

Here's the reply from Lewitt:

Cheers Dave,

This is the white version of the LCT 240 PRO, but he painted the grille to make it even whiter.
Seriously. o_O

Lee, have you used any of the Lewitt mics?  For some reason I'm feeling my Gear Acquisition Syndrome kicking in....

I have not.  We use lots of various high end mics but I have not used any of the Lewitt mics.

I have quite a few Tim.  Solidly built and sound killer.

Thanks, John!  I'm considering the 440 for single-mic bluegrass type things.  Anything I should know?

Nothing immediately springs to mind, although I haven't tried them for that.  They have a nice airy sound without getting harsh so I bet they'd be great. 

They are a solid build, so I guess my only thought would be make sure you have a beefy mic stand and/or sand bag if you're going to extend a boom at all.
