Win! LEWITT LCT 1040 Microphone

Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

LEWITT's innovative LCT 1040 microphone system is calling you (worth £2999). Enter today to stand a chance of winning!

Austrian brand LEWITT were founded in 2009 with the aim of bringing technical innovation to the often very traditionalist microphone market. This ethos is plainly evident in the modern look of LEWITT’s mics, but also in their many unusual features. For example, the company’s first models introduced a menu-based system to implement an unusually wide range of pad and filter options, while their later LCT 640 TS provided separate outputs for its front and rear diaphragms, allowing users to change the mic’s polar pattern after recording using a special DAW plug-in.

In the LCT 940, LEWITT pioneered the use of dual gain stages — one solid-state and the other valve — meaning the user can blend in varying degrees of harmonic distortion and saturation, and the flagship LCT 1040 takes the concept to a whole new level. Intended as the “ultimate microphone system”, the LCT 1040 houses a long-life E88CC valve, and its control unit again lets you blend between valve and solid-state gain stages. Here, though, there’s a choice of four different valve tonalities, offering you Clear, Warm, Dark and Saturated modes. In addition, there are four different high-pass filter options on offer, plus four different pad settings to choose from.

If that sounds like a lot of options, that’s because it is! When our Technical Editor Hugh Robjohns reviewed the LCT 1040 back in February 2022 (, he described it as “a complete joy to use... Take your pick of clear, warm, dark or saturated, and blend in the fast, quiet and very precise FET contribution to taste. Whichever setting is selected, this microphone exudes real class and quality.”

High praise indeed, and the winner of this month’s exclusive SOS competition will be able to experience the joy of using it for themselves!

Whichever setting is selected, this microphone exudes real class and quality.
