The LCT 450 features detailed sound with first-class transient response thanks to its ultra-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, 1" diaphragm. Its cardioid polar pattern ensures effective rear sound rejection both onstage and in the studio. It comes with two-step switchable pre-attenuation - two low-cut settings help reduce unwanted low-frequency noise. Modern features like Automatic Attenuation, Clipping History – as well as the illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling in dark environments are on board as well. The brilliant and clear sound that characterizes our recording microphones has been packed into a compact housing to ensure that the LCT 450 can play any role onstage; studio users, on the other hand, will appreciate the appealing look that reflects its professional inner workings. In short: the LCT 450 has everything it needs  - pure performance.
