The new design came about thanks to recommendations from drummers using the DP30/C. The newly redesigned DP30/C features a thicker and more rugged gooseneck that will stay in place when the drums are hit hard. After working to get the microphone in the sweet spot, drummers will not have to worry about the DP30/C migrating once they start drumming.
The new DP30/C maintains the same sound quality and craftsmanship of the original. The microphone capsule housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick. The electronics are housed in a cylindrical tube attached to the other end of the mini-gooseneck and provides a high level, low impedance output that will prevent radio frequency interference.
Its’ incredibly fast impulse response will allow the microphone to capture the full detail of the attack, while its short diaphragm settling time will allow you to hear a full bodied sound with subtle details that other microphones miss. The DP30/C will handle sound levels up to 145dB SPL with no audible distortion and its heavy construction will enable it to withstand the punishment of the road.
The DP30/C, as well as microphone from the rest of Earthworks lineup, comes with a 15 year warranty. For additional information on this microphone and others by Earthworks, visit the company online at www.earthworksaudio.com.
