Earthworks TC20 20kHz Omni Room Microphone

$399.00

Exceptional definition. Precise sound.

 

Microphone distortion, that is to say, overloading the mic’s preamp or diaphragm is a problem when recording loud sound sources, and hard to hear when you’re miking a heavily guitar distorted guitar amp, which will come back to bite you in the mix. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a mic you could put up close in front of any amp and not worry about whether the mic will distort? There is, it called the Earthworks TC20. With a mind-boggling SPL rating of 150dB, the TC20 has tons of headroom, so there’s no need to worry about distortion, even with the loudest instruments. Plus, there is no proximity effect, so you can get the TC20 as close as you want e for best signal-to-noise, or pull it back for a little room tone, all the while capturing the detail and realism that Earthworks is famous for.

Description

Vivid Sound, No Matter the Volume

 

The TC20 is an omnidirectional microphone designed for recording louder sources such as drums, percussion, amplified instruments and loud sound effects.

 

 

 

 

 

Headroom Perfected

 

With a whopping SPL rating of 150dB the TC20 has plenty of headroom. And with no proximity effect, you can get it as close as you want to the sound source.

 

 

 

 

 

Remarkable Response

 

With a 9Hz – 20kHz ruler-flat frequency response, and an ultra-fast transient response, the result is a more accurate representation of the original sound.

 

 

 

 

 

Control With No Compromise

 

Its near-perfect omnidirectional polar pattern is uniform across all specified frequencies, letting the microphone capture rich and consistent detail at any position around the capsule.
