Earthworks P30/CMP-B Periscope Cardioid Condenser Mic - Pair

Matched pairs of P30/Cs - black
MFR# P30/CMP-B

Product Description

The Earthworks P30/C Periscope is an instrument gooseneck microphone designed for live performance and studio recording environments. Designed to provide an ultra-flexible miking option, the P30/C is ideal for a wide range of acoustic and electric instruments, as well as orchestra and choir.

Thanks to its flexible gooseneck, the P30/C provides extra simplicity when trying to find that sweet spot. Instead of having to reposition the whole microphone or mic stand, simply flex the gooseneck to quickly reposition the microphone. Its uniquely designed small microphone head also allows you to get into difficult places, such as under the strings of an acoustic string bass.

The P30/C’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. With over 30 dB of rear rejection, the P30/C is ideal for live performances or recording environments where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments.

It handles transients with ease, reproducing every detail no matter how sharp or subtle. Handling up to 139 dB SPL without distortion, it’s nearly impossible to overload the P30/C, even with the loudest instruments.

Features:

  • 30 kHz frequency response
  • Easily mic guitars and other instruments, then re-position the microphone without moving the stand or boom
  • Uniform frequency response on or off-axis
  • More gain before feedback
  • Picks up almost no sound from the rear of the microphone
  • Near perfect polar response allows them to be placed closer to a choir with no spotlighting
  • Mini-gooseneck allows quick and easy positioning
  • Can be used for stringed, woodwind and percussion instruments

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.
