My go-to LDC in my studio just died on me and I'm looking at either getting a Lewitt 240 or 440 to replace it.
Some backstory; I have been wanting to get my hands on a SM7B for warm, punchy vocals, but it's not in the budget right now.
I know a LDC doesn't sound like a SM7B, but I'm just wondering if it might be possible to kill 2 birds with one stone here. I know the 440 has a 1" transducer and the 240 is a bit smaller. I'm wondering if the smaller diaphragm on the 240 might lend itself more to the punchiness I'd like to achieve with an SM7B?
