It features the same 1-inch studio capsule design like the handheld perfomance flagship MTP 940 CM, but with a streamlined set of features in order to create the most competitive product package in the perfomance microphone segment.
Whereas classic dynamic handheld vocal microphones like Lewitt‘s MTP 840 DM are your best bet in noisy and rough rock & roll stage environments, the MTP 740 CM is perfectly qualified to transfer even the most nuanced and delicate vocal arrangements from the studio to a live stage.
Great vocals don‘t go well with any distractions. The MTP 740 CM‘s cardioid polar pattern provides effective rear noise rejection and impressive feedback resistance when in use with floor monitors while unique suspension technology ensures shock resistance and eliminates structure-born noise efficiently.
A superior dynamic range of 138 dB (A) with exceptionally low self-noise of 14 dB (A) sets new standards in current handheld microphone design and makes this condenser transducer capable of capturing even the most dynamic performances but although the MTP 740 CM was primarily developed for live vocal performances, there are quite a few other fields of application: try it also on jazzy snare drums and all sorts of percussion and acoustic instruments!
- Uncompromising true studio condenser sound for stage performance
- Cardioid polar pattern for clean live sound and effective rear rejection
- Huge dynamic range of 140 dB (A) and exceptionally low self-noise of 14 dB (A) thanks to innovative direct coupling technology (patent pending)
