LEWITT says that they are bringing studio sound to the stage with the new MTP W950 true condenser handheld for wired and wireless. Designed as a performer's personal microphone,they believe that the MTP W950 offers excellent sound in any environment and has been tested on the world's biggest stages. Here's more details direct from the company...
If you're a vocalist, the new MTP W950 modular handheld microphone will become the mic you will insist on using for every show. In the past, condenser handheld microphones were considered a risky business for loud stages regarding feedback issues. The MTP W950 solves this problem by combining a 1" true condenser capsule for amazing studio sound quality with an industry-defining rear rejection of up to 90%. You, your band, and the audience can now enjoy a crystal-clear vocal mix without feedback and minimal bleed.
When you sing using your own microphone at each show, rehearsal, or even recording sessions, you will sound consistent each time you perform. The MTP W950 will become an instrument you can learn and grow with.
MTP W950 can be used wired or with a wireless system. The 1" true condenser capsule is detachable and compatible with a variety of industry-standard wireless handheld transmitters. If you're performing in the rehearsal room or a small venue, you can go wired via an XLR cable. If you play a big stage, you can simply go wireless. And since the MTP W950 features a studio capsule, you can easily bring it to recording sessions as well. With its outstanding studio sound quality, it's a microphone that's there for you wherever you want to use it.
The MTP W950 features extremely clear sound, keeping handling noise to an absolute minimum while its dual layer design eliminates wind noise and plosives. The optimized capsule placement forgives even the most creative microphone grasping techniques, and high sound quality will be maintained even when half the grille is covered. It will spare many engineers a headache; on the contrary, they will rave about the sound quality.
To provide full flexibility in all scenarios, the MTP W950 comes with switchable cardioid and supercardioid polar patterns, a 120 Hz low-cut filter, and 12 dB attenuation to reduce sensitivity and raise the maximum sound pressure level up to 152 dBSPL. Before its release, the MTP W950 has already been on some of the world's biggest stages for the last year through a comprehensive worldwide beta test. Night after night, professional live sound engineers have used it with star acts like the Rolling Stones, T-Pain, and Kehlani, getting outstanding and reliable sound quality no matter the venue.
By solving the most common problems for vocalists, LEWITT has created the ultimate live microphone for performers and engineers alike.
