Superior Impulse Response - the speed and accuracy with which a microphone responds to a signal with fast rise times such as percussion, guitar and brass. This helps retain the attack, punch and excitement in recorded music and sounds.
Fast Diaphragm Settling Time - how long it takes a diaphragm to return to rest. If a microphone’s diaphragm is still vibrating from previous sounds while it is trying to pick up new sounds, it adds coloration and smearing of low-level signals that contain important minute details.
Pick-up Pattern Technology - maintaining accuracy and uniform frequency response throughout the pick-up pattern. With this improved uniformity there is no spotlighting, less off-axis phase problems and more gain before feedback.
Extended Frequency Response - capturing high frequency details and overtones is a clear advantage when using today’s higher sampling rates for recording. Our proprietary technology provides higher frequency response, better impulse response and time domain accuracy, which will capture overtones and details that conventional microphones mask.
You will be astonished when you first use an Earthworks Microphone. You will hear more clarity, detail and transparency than you have ever heard from a microphone. Musical instruments and vocalists will sound more real, vibrant and alive. Earthworks microphones have superior performance because of their advanced pick-up patterns; they work better than conventional cardioid and omni microphones. Our microphones come in 20kHz, 25kHz, 30kHz, 40kHz and 50kHz models with a variety of advanced pick-up patterns. You can choose the microphone that best suits your requirements and pocketbook. Remember, the higher the frequency response, the better the impulse response.
Earthworks cardioid microphones are unlike all the rest, as they have patented near-perfect cardioid patterns. The sound across the entire front hemisphere is remarkably uniform and is flatter at 90 degrees than most microphones are on-axis. This results in uncolored off-axis rejection for recording and greater gain before feedback for live sound. They effortlessly handle up to 145dB SPL while simultaneously revealing subtle details that other microphones mask. All SR models are a superb value and will provide excellent results for both live performance and recording applications.
The Earthworks SR25 was specifically designed for drums and is also ideal for a wide variety of other instruments. It’s high frequency response goes to 25kHz and costs less than the SR30. The SR25 is an integral part of our DK25/L DrumKit™ System.
