Product Description


LCT 840

Super-low self-noise multi-pattern tube microphone with a spectacular view.


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 on stage. 5 switchable polar patterns, 3 low-cut settings, and 3 pre-attenuation 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 just like its place of origin - Vienna, Austria - a mixture of old and new, traditional heritage and high-tech. We love rich tube sound 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.

Remote control unit 

Illuminated user interface 

The illumination of the user interface allows a quick and accurate setup of pattern, pre-attenuation and low-cut - thus it is easy to check or change the settings on the remote power supply unit, even in complete darkness.

Multi-pattern design 

The LCT 840 provides 5 polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid and figure-8.

Low-cut and attenuation 

Adapt to every situation 

Low-cut: linear, 40 Hz, 300 Hz
Attenuation: 0 dB, -10 dB, -20 dB

Automatic Attenuation and Clipping History 

The LCT 840 is packed with useful features that make your recording workflow easier!

What's in the box 

The LCT 840 comes in a very sturdy transport case. It includes a dedicated shock mount, a windscreen, the power supply remote control unit, a dedicated 11-pin audio cable to connect the LCT 840 to the remote control unit, and a power cable.


"OK, how does it sound? In a word, fantastic. Warmest, smoothest, tube mic I've ever used. I do a lot of vintage type stuff like bluegrass, vintage country etc. The 840 is perfect for vocals for a vintage vocal sound. No hype on the high end. No muddyness on the low end. Just a perfectly balanced albeit warm and somewhat dark sound. Running through a tube/transformer preamp results in vintage sound dripping with warmth and mojo."
