Earthworks DK25 overview

  • 1Description

With a history for manufacturing quality measurement and studio microphones, the Earthworks DK25/L drum microphone set represents an innovative approach to drum miking for live sound applications. The set includes three SR25 cardioid condenser microphones and a KickPad in-line pad adapter.

Earthworks engineers have developed a 25kHz percussion microphone series, challenging the traditional 5 to 7 microphone technique with just 2 overhead and 1 kick drum microphone. The result is a level of clarity, cohesiveness and transparency that rival industry favorite drum microphones and miking techniques, while reproducing an image of the entire drum kit. The microphone set features the KickPad, an in-line adapter that optimizes any of the SR25 microphones for use as a kick drum microphone.

Optimized For Live Sound
Optimized for live sound applications, the cardioid pattern of the SR25 microphones feature a focused pick up. The result minimizes ambient noise caused by adjacent drum resonance, additional instruments and nearby monitor speakers.
Extended Frequency Response
The Earthworks 25kHz series of percussion microphones feature a flat, wide frequency response that accurately capture the slightest nuance in rich detail.
KickPad In-Line Pad
The microphone set includes the KickPad, an in-line pad adapter that optimizes the SR25 to accurately capture kick drums.

    Earthworks DK25 reviews

    DK25/L Live Performance Drum Microphone Set is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb clarity It is SO nice to receive something which is made in a reputable country by reputable and dedicated practitioners. The mics are used primarily to mic drum sets - and have produced a sound unequalled except by the very best other mics I have (Sennheiser MKH8040 pairs). While the Sennheisers colour the sound very slightly on the warm side of accurate (for overhead drum miking), the DK25/Ls are so precise and clean that I was almost disappointed - like: I wish that there were a little bit of character of their own... Just joking. They are just plain absolutely clean, precise, accurate, true... and have all the range that even the most energetic of drummers cannot shake. What more could a sound engineer want?... The finish on the mics is no-nonsense superb - clean, sensible, solid and dependable.I really cannot think of anything that is not great about them. I chose the Live Performance cardiod set because I want to have the option to use these versatile mics in other settings. Their precision will be a boon, I know. The kick-pad which makes the one cardiod into a kick-drum mic is a wonderful piece of electronics.Well done Earthworks...Oh yes, as an advertising man too, I have to say that the Earthworks logo is way too lightweight and almost amateur to go with this product. The product is clean, solid, no-nonsense - and the logo should match that. I really think that, as it stands, it is understating / misstating the excellence of the product.
