The Earthworks DM20 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Drum Microphone is a cardioid condenser mic designed for miking snares and toms in live and studio settings. Earthworks is renowned for crafting high-definition mics, and the DM20 lives up to their reputation. Whether on stage or in the studio, this mic picks up drum tones with stunning realism and depth.
Near-Perfect Polar Pattern
The DM20 has a cardioid polar pattern that remains consistent across all frequencies. This makes placement simple and virtually eliminates phase issues and feedback. You'll gain plenty of volume before feedback becomes a problem.
Lightning-Fast Transient Response
With an ultrafast transient response, the DM20 captures every subtle detail and dynamic shading of your playing. Even the fastest drum rolls and hardest hits won't overload this mic, which can handle up to 150 dB SPL.
Road-Ready and Recording-Ready
The DM20 brings Earthworks' renowned studio sound quality to the stage. Its rugged stainless steel build withstands the rigors of touring while still delivering pristine tone. An included RM1 rim mount attaches the mic directly to drum rims, eliminating stands. Save setup time by storing the mic attached to the mount in its case.
Precision-Engineered for Drummers
Every element of the DM20 is optimized for drum miking, from its small diaphragm capsule to its proprietary Class A amplifier circuitry. The right-angle mic head and flexible gooseneck make placement a breeze. Once positioned, the mic stays firmly in place even under heavy playing.
