Dan Green Captures Coldplay With Earthworks Microphones

Since moving to the Earthworks drum microphones my drum sound has really expanded. The transient response of these microphones is incredible. Before I used to rely on transient enhancing plug-ins to get a similar sound, now it is all from the SR40 overheads. One of the other benefits of the new DP30/C periscope microphones are their new very rugged flexible arms, this gives me so many options on placement. They are a great addition to any Studio recording or Live performance.
