Lewitt MTP940 Large Diaphragm Live Microphone

Music professionals know that it’s often the smallest details that make all the difference in vocal and instrumental recordings.

With our MTP series, we aim to exceed artists’ and audio engineers’ expectations of reproduction accuracy and isolation of the main sound source. The new flagships among LEWITT’s performance microphones – the MTP 840 DM and the 940 CM are true milestones of audio technology.

Lewitt MTP940 Large Diaphragm Live Microphone


Real studio performance onstage - at present, this can only be found in the top model of LEWITT’s MTP Performance Series. Meeting the highest standards onstage and in the studio requires no less than the world’s most technically advanced, most innovative and most full-featured handheld condenser microphone: the new MTP 940 CM - a milestone of audio technology.

The externally biased large-diaphragm capsule of the MTP 940 CM lends the lead voice the necessary presence in an infinitely subtle, detailed and authentic way. The source comes through clearly and authentically, processed with impressive feedback resistance and with undesired breath, popping and handling noise efficiently reduced to a minimum.

The MPT 940 CM boasts a 135 dB dynamic range - the widest ever achieved in a live microphone - due to its high headroom and LEWITT’s own Direct Coupling circuit design, which makes possible an unbeatably low self-noise level of just 9 dB. This means that the MTP 940 CM is also ideal for use in the studio, whenever the goal is to create a live atmosphere with the highest degree of acoustic precision.

The MTP 940’s comprehensive features and settings outshine those of more than a few purebred studio microphones. Three switchable polar patterns - wide cardioid, cardioid and supercardioid - ease recording of the most diverse sources; from lead vocals to choirs and on to classic unplugged situations with a singer and an acoustic instrument. A three-step high-pass filter makes it possible to directly influence the proximity effect, adapting it in the best-possible way to the sound source. And the three-position switchable preattenuation pad guarantees use even in extreme SPL environments. LEDs that can be switched off if desired, mean that checking settings quick and easy - a boon in dark environments and helpful in ensuring a fast and trouble-free setup process. The mic’s extremely stable and rugged construction can take even the roughest everyday touring knocks with no problem.

For everyone who’s always dreamed of taking their studio mic into their hands and onstage, or of recreating a live atmosphere in the studio at an uncompromising level of quality, the MTP 940 CM is the only right choice. With the optimal synergy between versatility, innovation and superior sound characteristics, it sets a new benchmark in the world of high-end microphones.
