Earthworks DM20 Drum Microphone
The DM20 has revolutionised the way drums can sound both live and recorded. Based on the long heritage of manufacturing absolutely exceptional microphones with exceptional frequency and phase response, the DM20 is nothing short of stunning.
The Earthworks DM20 eliminates the gap between form and functionality, sparking new levels of performance. From the rich, mid lows to the crisp, airy highs, sacrifices in sound are a thing of the past with the DM20 condenser. And crafted out of stainless steel, its rugged build means it is equally at home on the road as it is in a studio.
Massive rear rejection and a polar pattern that’s consistent across the entire frequency range means any off-axis leakage fades smoothly into the background in the mix.
Most live sound microphones sacrifice sound quality with big heavy dynamic capsules that move too slowly to capture the subtle high frequency details in the attack of a drum. Not the DM20. Its small diaphragm capsule coupled with a proprietary Class A amplifier circuit delivers an incredible transient response that’s meant for drums.
The DM20 can handle whatever you throw at it…and then some. With a staggering max acoustic input of 150dB SPL, even the loudest drummer won’t overload these mics.
The DM20 is available in the DK7 Premium Drum kit which includes:
4 x DM20 Mics for Toms & Snare,
