Earthworks DK50/R Premium DrumKit Microphone System

Premium DrumKit system for recording
MFR# DK50/R

Product Description

The Earthworks DK50/R Premium DrumKit™ System for recording provides a dramatic improvement in the sound quality of miking drums.  This recording system has two QTC50 omni mics for overheads, one SR30 cardioid mic for the kick, three LevelPads™, a KickPad™ and windscreen.

QTC50 Omni Microphone
Each QTC50 mic is ideal for digital recording with sample rates up to 192kHz, and even higher where every nuance of sound must be captured.  Each has an extended high frequency response from 3Hz to 50kHz and better impulse response.

SR30 Cardioid Microphone
Earthworks SR30 is the most accurate cardioid microphone on the market. With high frequency response of 30Hz to 30kHz it will capture incredible detail. at 6 inches away from the source it sounds as omni-like as a cardioid can.  The off-axis rejection is substantial yet uncolored. Its impulse response is very fast and smooth and the sound stays the same across the entire front hemisphere of pickup.

KickPad™
A pad/EQ processor for all cardioid mics used on kick drum.  Plug the KP1 and experience an "instant kick drum sound" that is exactly repeatable, every time. This is a real time saver that will work with any cardioid microphone that is used for kick drum.  As a passive device, the KickPad can be used with either condenser or dynamic cardioid microphones.

LevelPad™
The LevelPad is a high quality, in-line pad.  It is switchable to either -15dB or -30dB of attenuation and may be used for mic- or line-level signals.  With a frequency response from DC to over 200kHz, it will handle signal levels up to +30dBV with an E.I.N. of -137dBV at -15dB setting and -142dBV at the -30dB setting.  A stainless steel tube with gold plated XLR connectors on each end means your LevelPad is built to last.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
