Lewitt Quote

"I love the Lewitt DTP640 REX kick mic. The dual capsule concept is wonderful idea. Using 2 separate mics for kick can cause problems and phase anomalies. Sometimes the kick-in mic can shift internally and change the sound. Having one mic with 2 capsules that is phase coherent prevents that. Having a switch to change from 3 different frequency ranges between the two capsules gives me many options to work with. I use it in the ++ mode. This mic has great hammer snap with the top end and the low end is fantastic even without a port hole to work with. Also, the tom mics-  reminded of the Sennheiser 604s- they have the same dynamic range but the Lewitt is a much better built mic. A lot of engineers will use the Beta 98 but the Beta 98 does not have the dynamic range as a larger diaphragm mic like the Lewitt DTP340 TT. I also enjoy using the MTP540 hand held vocal mic. I am able to get a lot of headroom with it. It has a great smooth sound even when up to close. I use the MTP440 for snare mic and guitar amplifiers. It is very smooth and does not distort at high dB. I used to use the Sennheiser e609 on distortion driven guitar amps but that mic added its own distortion at times,  it's also a little cumbersome.  The way the Lewitt mic is designed, it does a great job capturing the amp without adding unwanted artifacts.
With the proper paintbrushes an artist can paint incredible, vividly bold,  eye catching images. Having Lewitt on stage, was like having the finest painters brush. Thank you Lewitt for helping me paint a beautiful image for my audience!"
