The Earthworks QTC40 Omnidirectional Microphone is a 40kHz low noise omni mic designed for recording quiet sources. Delivering sound so detailed and real, the QTC40 brings recordings to life and delivers a truly accurate snapshot of your sound.

The Earthworks QTC40 Omnidirectional Microphone's near-perfect omnidirectional polar pattern is uniform across all specified frequencies, letting the microphone capture rich and consistent detail at any position around the capsule. With an extended 3Hz – 40kHz ruler-flat frequency response (with no frequencies exaggerated or attenuated) the result is a more accurate representation of the original sound.

The Earthworks QTC40 is time coherent, precisely capturing high and low frequency sounds with no phase errors, which will smear transients and create other time related distortions. With an SPL rating of 140dB the Earthworks QTC40 has plenty of headroom, so there is no need to worry about the microphone distorting. And there is no proximity effect, you can get the Earthworks QTC40 as close as you want to the sound source.

Ideal for for recording quieter sources such as vocals, strings and distant miked orchestras or choirs, the Earthworks QTC40 low noise omni is also an excellent choice for drum overheads, close-miked wind and percussion instruments, and foley.

    use QTC1 microphones for Jecklin disk recording

    microphones sound fine, a little quieter than the TC40K MP I have. The individual microphones are not within 1db of each other, but they weren't ordered as a matched pair. I have always had good recordings with Earthworks microphones. This is my 3rd pair.
