Earthworks Redesigns the DP30C
Earthworks has unveiled the new DP30/C Drum Periscope cardioid microphone.
The redesigned DP30/C features a thicker gooseneck designed to stay in place even when the snare or toms are struck hard. Once the microphone head is placed in the “sweet spot”, drummers will not have to worry about the DP30/C migrating once they commence, the manufacturer promises.
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 end of the gooseneck and provides an output designed to prevent radio frequency interference.
The DP30/C is designed to handle sound levels up to 145dB SPL with no audible distortion, according to Earthworks.
