While emulating classic microphones may appeal to some brands and consumers, Lewitt strive to innovate and create the most versatile and best value-for-money mics available on the market. The DTP 340 TT epitomises their approach; an ultra-affordable dynamic microphone optimised for capturing high-pressure sound sources such as drum toms and snares.
The Lewitt DTP 340 TT's incredible price-point makes it ideal for hobbyists that are keen to record at home. However, even professionals can admire its rugged build and impressive sound quality. For example, its die-cast body and hardened steel mesh grille makes it super-robust, and thus as good for live applications as it is for recording.
Its super cardioid polar pattern also ensures that the instrument you're capturing sounds focused, punchy and isolated, as it essentially rejects rear and side sounds. This exceptional microphone comes with a bag and two mounting clips (tom clip and traditional mic stand clip).
Here's what Lewitt say about the DTP 340 TT:
The DTP 340 TT is a high performance wired dynamic microphone. It is specifically designed to accurately capture the sound of drums and percussion instruments, providing a maximum of acoustic presence and clarity. Even in high sound pressure level applications, our DTP 340 TT reproduces instrumental sounds with sonic detail and character.
Its super cardioid polar pattern ensures that side and rear sounds are effectively rejected. Its rugged body and hardened steel-mesh grille make it highly durable professional gear.
Capturing the essence
The DTP 340 TT is a high performance wired dynamic microphone specifically designed to accurately capture the sound of drums and percussion instruments. Its super cardioid polar pattern ensures maximum isolation of the instrument in studio and live applications.
