The Earthworks DK50/R DRUMKIT SYSTEM for recording. Three microphones capture every nuance of sound from each piece of your drum set with exceptional clarity and cohesiveness.
The Earthworks DK50/R DRUMKIT SYSTEM for 'Recording' . The DK50/R Premium DrumKit System for recording provides a dramatic improvement in the sound quality of miking drums. This recording system has two QTC50 omni mics for overheads, an SR30 cardioid mic for the kick, three LevelPads, a KickPad and windscreen. Each QTC50 mic is ideal for digital recording with sample rates up to 192kHz, and even higher where every nuance of sound must be captured. Each has an extended high frequency response from 3Hz to 50kHz and better impulse response. The Earthworks SR30 is the most accurate cardioid microphone on the market. With high frequency response of 30Hz to 30kHz it will capture incredible detail. At 6 inches away from the source it sounds as omni-like as a cardioid can. The off-axis rejection is substantial yet uncoloured. Its impulse response is very fast and smooth and the sound stays the same across the entire frontal hemisphere of pickup. The KickPad is a pad/EQ processor for all cardioid mics used on kick drum. Plug the KickPad and experience an "instant kick drum sound" that is exactly repeatable, every time. This is a real time saver that will work with any cardioid microphone that is used for kick drum. As a passive device, the KickPad can be used with either condenser or dynamic cardioid microphones. The LevelPad is a high quality, in-line pad. It is switchable to either -15dB or -30dB of attenuation and may be used for mic- or line-level signals. With a frequency response from DC to over 200kHz, it will handle signal levels up to +30dBV with an E.I.N. of -137dBV at -15dB setting and -142dBV at the -30dB setting. A stainless steel tube with gold plated XLR connectors on each end means your LevelPad is built to last.
