Earthworks SR25MP Drum Overhead Mics


Lightning speed. Staggering performance.


When you need to capture drums as transparently as possible, with the utmost detail, you need mics like these matched Earthworks SR25 instrument microphones. Earthworks condenser microphones are designed from the ground up to be as accurate and articulate as possible, and that’s exactly what you can expect from the SR25. They can handle up to 145db, so even the loudest drummer won’t overload them. Its cardioid polar pattern gives you even frequency response across the frequency spectrum, and the 140-degree sweet spot gives you a transparent picture of your entire drum kit. And with 30dB of off-axis rejection, stage and monitor bleed won’t be an issue.
