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.

  • QTC50 Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone (Single Microphone)

    The QTC50 from Earthworks is a condenser microphone. This microphone is a member of Earthworks Quiet Time-Coherent series and is designed to accurately reproduce quiet audio signals with pristine detail and low noise. The wide dynamic range of strings, choirs, and orchestras are captured and reproduced with uncanny accuracy and detail. The prepolarized omnidirectional capsule exhibits fast response to transient (peak) signals, enabling exceptional SPL handling and minimal distortion.

    The omnidirectional capsule is incapable of proximity effect and a wide, flat frequency response of 3 Hz to 50 kHz further maximizes detail. Overall the QTC50 is a valued addition in high definition recording and sound reinforcement applications that include choir, orchestra and acoustic music capturing as well as speech and sound design.

    High Definition & Detail
    The Quiet Time-Coherent microphone series from Earthworks are designed to reproduce quiet signals with uncanny accuracy and detail without noise. Perfect for 192 kHz resolution recording.
    Ultra Wide Frequency Response
    The QTC50 exhibits a frequency response of 3 Hz to 50 kHz resulting in impressively detailed signal reproduction.
    Fast Transient Response
    The prepolarized condenser capsule is capable of capturing signal rich in transient peaks without noise due to distortion.
    High SPL Handling
    The QTC50's high SPL provides incredible headroom which further minimizes noise due to peak distortion and excessively loud signals at close proximity.
    Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
    The omnidirectional polar pattern provides rich, consistent detail at the off and direct sections of the capsule.

  • SR30 Cardioid Directional Studio Condenser Microphone (Single Microphone)

    The SR30 from Earthworks is a cardioid condenser microphone designed for precision pick up in crucial recording and sound reinforcement environments.

    The condenser element provides a warm, transparent sonic character with an even 30 Hz to 30 kHz frequency response. Sonic timbre, frequency response and transparency remain uniform across the entire front of the capsule, providing maximum sound reproduction regardless of placement. The capsule boasts an SPL rating of 145 dB allowing exceptional reproduction of audio peaks without distortion and overload. The SR30 is powered via 48V phantom power and is suitable for instrument, vocal, and live concert recording.

    Pickup Pattern
    The capsule features a cardioid pick up pattern providing high gain before feedback.
    Even Frequency Response
    The SR30 features an even frequency and sensitivity response at the entire front of the capsule.
  • LP1530 In-Line Attenuator

    The Earthworks LP1530 Level-Pad is an in-line attenuator that provides -15 and -30dB attenuation and minimizes distortion by providing added headroom. The Level-Pad is typically packaged with Earthworks drum microphone packages and provides much needed headroom to drum and percussion microphones. The Level-Pad features standard XLR-male to XLR-female connections for use with any condenser microphone.

  • KP1 KICKPAD - In-Line XLR Barrel

    The Earthworks KickPad is an XLR in-line mic pad and EQ processor designed to enhance, and make repeatable and consistent, the performance of microphones designed or commonly used for the recording of the bass drum in a drum kit. This passive device, connected between the source microphone and the mixing console, provides a degree of transient control and boosts the frequency range commonly produced by that particular instrument.
