Earthworks DP30/C Drum Microphone

Front End Audio frequently has gear that has been used briefly for demonstration purposes. Expect these items to have minor cosmetic issues but rest assured that these issues do not have any affect on the functionality, playability or performance of the item.

Please note, Demo items are priced to move fast so no other discounts or promotional codes can be applied to our already discounted prices.

The Earthworks DP30/C Drum Microphone is designed specifically for snare and toms featuring a flexible mini-gooseneck for easy positioning and a high acoustic input level that can handle up to 145 dB SPL. The Earthworks patented polar technology provides excellent rear rejection and a uniformity of frequency response out to 90 degrees off-axis. This vastly reduces phase cancellation or other phasing issues, and minimizes cymbal leakage as well as acoustic feedback problems in "live sound" applications.

Close Miking Toms with the DP30/C

The Earthworks DP30/C Drum Microphone has been optimized for miking toms with a low frequency response of 30Hz. This extended low frequency response will provide a rich and full tom sound. You can mike either the top head of a tom with the Earthworks DP30/C Drum Microphone or you can also mike the bottom, or top and bottom of a tom in a similar fashion as on a snare. The microphone head is placed closer to the drum rim or you move it closer to the center of the drumhead by changing the position of the mini-flex gooseneck.

Earthworks DP30/C Drum Microphone Features

  • Extended frequency response to 30 kHz to capture a crisper and more realistic image
  • Very fast impulse response making it ideal for reproducing the rich low frequencies and full detail of the attack
  • Shorter diaphragm settling time to prevent quieter attacks from being blurred by earlier loud attacks
  • Near perfect cardioid polar pattern that remain even across all frequencies and at any position within the pattern
  • A right angle mic head is mounted to the gooseneck for easy positioning
  • Stiff mini-gooseneck that will not move when the drums are hit hard
  • The microphone capsule housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick
  • Mini-gooseneck allows quick and easy positioning
  • The electronics are housed in a cylindrical tube attached to the other end of the mini-gooseneck and provide a high level, low impedance output that will prevent RFI
  • 145dB SPL capability ensures the mic will not overload from the loudest of drum attacks
  • Heavy construction enables it to withstand the punishment of the road
