Earthworks CMK5MKII Overview

  • 1Description

The Earthworks CMK5MKII CloseMic Kit is a professional drum microphone kit that utilizes Earthworks' carefully designed cardioid microphones. The system includes five DM20 DrumMic microphones, specifically designed for close-miking snares and toms. Each microphone is equipped with a rugged gooseneck that will not move when drums are hit hard. The DM20 is designed to withstand the rigors of on-the-road wear and tear, and can withstand a stray stick hit. Overall, the microphones deliver high-definition audio fidelity in crucial recording applications and professional sound reinforcement. The Earthworks CMK5MKII ships with five RM1 rim mounts, five PW1 foam windscreens, and a high-impact carrying case.

  • Frequency response from 50 Hz to 20 kHz captures more detail and dynamics of your playing
  • Fast impulse response makes this microphone ideal for reproducing the full detail of the attack
  • Substantially shorter diaphragm settling time prevents subtle details from being blurred or covered by earlier loud attacks
  • Near-perfect cardioid polar pattern reproduces all specified frequencies uniformly at any position within the pattern
  • With 32 dB of rear rejection, it is ideal for live performances or recording environments where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments
  • More gain before feedback
  • 150 dB SPL ensures the mic will not overload from the loudest of drum attacks
  • The microphone head housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick
  • Flexible but rigid gooseneck that will not move when the drums are hit hard
  • Heavy stainless steel construction can withstand the punishment of all touring environments
  • RM1 RimMount is included for mounting the DM20 on rim of snare or toms
