Earthworks SR20 overview

  • 1Description

The SR20 from Earthworks is a professional performance microphone designed to handle the demands of professional sound reinforcement and recording applications. The SR20 features an electret condenser element with a cardioid polar pattern. The SR20's clean on-axis response provides maximum intelligibility of vocals while rejecting off-axis noise and feedback from ambiance and near by stage monitors. The microphone is capable of handling high Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) making it an exceptional choice for instrument capturing. A removable windscreen assembly unveils an alternate signal response that results in a wider pick up area, ideal for background vocals and choir pick up. The SR20 is an exceptional choice for stage performances, studio recording, presentations, houses-of-worship, meeting halls, board rooms and more.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern is effective in rejecting off-axis noise and ambiance that causes feedback.
Detachable Windscreen Assembly
The detachable windscreen creates a wider pick up area, ideal for capturing back ground vocals and instruments.
High SPL Handling
The SR20 is capable of handling SPL up to 145 dB without noise caused by peak distortion.
Uniform Frequency Response
The uniform frequency response is maintained at a 45 and 90 degree axis.

    Earthworks SR20 reviews

    SR20 Cardioid Handheld Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all-round microphone I own 5 of them and have been using for live classical music recordings for nearly 10 years. 1. Frequency response is nearly direction independent. This characteristic is important at the live recording situation because the players positions are unpredictable. 2. High front-rear rejection ration. 3. Very flat frequency response. I place them a few feet away from each instruments ( strings, winds and pianos ), with the use of shock mount, and get consistently good results. These microphones are also good for stereo miking placed above the orchestra conductor. This microphone has somewhat higher noise floor. I, however, never come across situations that the mic noise is larger than the room noises.
