SKU: # 690248

The new DM20 DrumMic from Earthworks is a precision engineered cardioid condenser microphone designed for close miking toms and snare in live performance and recording environments. Key features of the DM20 include a cardioid polar pattern, 150dB SPL rating and flat 50Hz-20kHz frequency response.

Machined out of stainless steel, the DM20 is capable of withstanding a stray stick hit. A right angle microphone head allows the user to position the microphone precisely, while the stiff yet flexible gooseneck will stay put even with the most energetic drummer.

Each DM20 microphone ships with an RM1 RimMount for mounting the microphone directly on the rim of a snare or toms, eliminating the need for mic stands.

• Extended frequency response from 50Hz-20kHz to capture more detail and dynamics of your playing
• Ultra fast impulse response makes this microphone ideal for reproducing the full detail of the attack (note: impulse response has little to do with low frequency sounds)
• Shorter diaphragm settling time prevents subtle details from being blurred by earlier loud attacks
• Near-perfect cardioid polar pattern reproduces all specified frequencies uniformly at any position within the pattern
• With 32dB of rear rejection, it is ideal for live performances or recording environments where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments
• High gain before feedback
• 150dB SPL capability ensures the mic will not overload from the loudest of drum attacks
• A right angle mic head is mounted to the gooseneck for easy positioning
• The microphone head housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick
• Stiff mini-gooseneck that will not move when the drums are hit hard
• Heavy stainless steel construction is able to withstand the punishment of touring
• RM1 RimMount is included for mounting the DM20 on rim of snare or toms
