The Earthworks DM20 Gen 2 Microphone is a precision engineered cardioid condenser microphone designed for close miking tom and snare in live performance and studio recording environments.

In the studio, on stage, and on every top streaming channel, the DM20 became the must-have tom and snare drum microphone. It was the benchmark of success and the fastest way to get the fullest sound. And now, the second generation builds on everything that the industry expects while improving on all aspects of usability and performance. We kept everything that you loved while giving you more of everything else that you asked for.

New Active Electronics
We've hardened the internal electronics to draw less phantom power, and we've built in additional protection features to safeguard against accidental hot swapping. We all know that you shouldn't plug in a condenser microphone with the power engaged but we also know that's an inevitably in the field sometimes. These new stacked changes make the DM20 Gen 2 more robust, more compatible, and more user-friendly.

New Rim Mounting System
Everything about the DM20 Gen 2 is designed for speed — and that includes the speed of set up and tear down. The new and improved rim mounting solution saves massive amounts of time while delivering a much better user experience. Plus, it's compatible with even more kits and percussive instruments.

Built For Touring. Used Everywhere.
The DM20 Gen 2 is incredibly versatile and is built for live sound reinforcement. It captures all the details of a condenser microphone, but performs with the usability of a dynamic mic. This makes it ideal for streaming and video recordings and also for all studio work environments.

  • Increased rear rejection makes it far more ideal for snare than the DM20 Gen 1
