The Earthworks SV33 Microphone provides the amazing detail and jaw-dropping realism that is a signature or Earthworks, and combines that with a warm and musical character - that is meticulously tailored for the human voice.
The Earthworks SV33 Microphone is the Earthworks' flagship studio vocal microphone featuring a 14mm capsule that delivers warmth coupled with staggeringly precise audio performance. A true cardioid polar pattern provides freedom and ease for every recording session with an enormous sweet spot and incredible rear rejection, maintaining complete sonic accuracy for vocal performances.
Never has there been a vocal microphone that gives you this much freedom. Freedom to express, to move, to take risks and capture every essence of the vocal performance. The Earthworks SV33 eliminates limitations found in other high end studio microphones and infuses ease into the process for both the vocalist and the engineer. With 140 degrees of freedom across the frontal hemisphere every moment of joy, longing, pain or elation will come through with breathtaking lifelike clarity.
The Earthworks SV33 excels at delivering crystal clear vocals full of detail and nuance; effortlessly positioned forward in the mix with incredible low end, smooth midrange and high frequency detail. The openness and the air, it’s all there. Giving you a big vocal track full of vibrant presence with incredible intimacy. Its discrete Class A circuitry means that your signal path will remain uncompromised, delivering the purest sound possible. With the Earthworks SV33 you will achieve unmatched sonic clarity and world-class performance for every recording session.
The Earthworks SV33’s wide cardioid pickup pattern behaves incredibly well on-axis, maintaining the integrity of your vocals and allowing more freedom to move in front of the microphone. Off-axis it excels at rejecting unwanted sounds, so in the unlikely event of bleed, the sound will remain uncolored and pure.

What We Think
"The Earthworks SV33 is such a surprising microphone. While it has the detail and realism that we know and love of Earthworks microphones, there is something much more to the mic. There is a warmth (all be it subtle), and a musicality that makes a vocal sound smooth, present, and more alive. The care in tailoring this microphone specifically to the human voice, really sets it apart. It is really such a stark departure from what we normally associate with Earthworks, and one that I hope leads to them branching out more in creating tailored microphones. The Earthworks SV33 is a unique and amazing microphone for all voice and vocal applications."
