Earthworks DP30/C – No Longer Available

Drum periscope tom microphone 30Hz to 30kHz
MFR# DP30/C

Product Description

The Earthworks DP30/C is a high definition microphone™ that has been designed for use with toms.  Its incredibly fast impulse response will allow it to capture the full detail of the attack, while its short diaphragm settling time will allow you to hear a full bodied sound with subtle details that you cannot hear using conventional microphones.  The DP30/C will handle sound levels up to 145dB SPL with no audible distortion and its heavy construction will enable it to withstand the punishment of the road.  For those using Drum Periscope™ mics for toms and snare, the DP30/C has a blue logo ring for quick identification as a tom mic.  This exceptional tom microphone will provide unparalleled sound quality and years of reliable service.

Features:

  • Improved impulse response for faster and more accurate transients
  • Shorter diaphragm settling time to prevent quieter attacks from being blurred by earlier loud attacks
  • Extended frequency response to 30 kHz to capture a crisper and more realistic image
  • Near perfect polar patterns that remain even across all frequencies and at any position within the pattern
  • Will take a direct hit from a drumstick
  • A right angle mic head is mounted to the gooseneck for easy positioning
  • Stiff mini-gooseneck that will not move when the drums are hit hard
  • The microphone capsule housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick
  • The electronics are housed in a cylindrical tube attached to the other end of the mini-gooseneck and provide a high level, low impedance output that will prevent RFI
  • Cardioid polar pattern
  • Frequency response of 30Hz to 30kHz
  • Very fast impulse response making it ideal for reproducing the rich low frequencies and full detail of the attack
  • 145dB SPL capability ensures the mic will not overload from the loudest of drum attacks
  • Short diaphragm settling time allows you to hear a full-bodied sound with subtle details that you cannot hear using conventional microphones
  • Heavy construction enables it to withstand the punishment of the road

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.

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.
