The DK/50 Drum Microphone Kit from Earthworks is a three-piece microphone set that includes two QTC50 omnidirectional condenser microphones and an SR30 cardioid condenser microphone. The kit is designed to meet the demands of professional engineers who prefer minimal miking techniques to achieve detailed, yet spacious drum recordings.
For maximum results, the QTC50 omnidirectional microphones should be placed over the drum throne in an X/Y pattern, while the SR30 is used at a 45-degree angle on the kick drum. Also included in this set are three LevelPads and one KickPad for in-line control over frequency response and attenuation. Additional accessories include three foam windscreens and mounting clamps, stainless steel windscreen for the SR30 and a rugged road case.
