The Earthworks SR20 Handheld Condenser Microphone is a cardioid mic with clean, natural on-axis pick up and smooth uncolored off-axis rejection, making it a superb choice for a wide range of applications, including reinforcement and recording of vocals, guitar, drums, piano, horns, strings and woodwinds.
The Earthworks SR20 Handheld Condenser Microphone is a multi-purpose vocal & instrument microphone designed for live performance and studio recording environments.The ultimate workhorse microphone, the Earthworks SR20 Handheld Condenser Microphone is designed to seamlessly transition from tracking vocals in the studio to miking acoustic guitar onstage and everything in between.
The Earthworks SR20’s near-perfect cardioid polar pattern is consistent across all frequencies, simplifying mic placement, ensuring more gain before feedback and virtually eliminating phasing issues when using multiple microphones. It handles transients with ease, reproducing every detail no matter how sharp or subtle. Capable of handling sound pressure levels of up to 139dB without distortion, the Earthworks SR20 can handle nearly any instrument.
Featuring a screw-on metal mesh windscreen, the Earthworks SR20 is a world-class vocal microphone that captures the subtle details of your performance. Its clean on-axis response provides maximum intelligibility of vocals up to 90 degrees off-axis, while rejecting off-axis noise and feedback from ambiance, surrounding instruments and nearby stage monitors thanks to its massive rear rejection.
This performance also makes the Earthwork SR20 a stellar choice for presentations, press conferences, meeting halls and more. When every word counts, the Earthworks SR20 will deliver. Unscrewing the Earthworks SR20’s windscreen reveals an instrument microphone that is equally at home miking acoustic guitar, brass, woodwinds, drums, guitar amp, and more.
