Earthworks DK25/R Drum Mic Kit for recording

Includes 3 Free 20ft. Whirlwind Mic cables!!!!

The DK25/R is for recording and has two TC25 omnis for overheads, an SR25cardioid for kick drum, a KickPad™ and a windscreen. This model is ideal for use in an enclosed acoustic environment or in a drum room/booth.

Earthworks High Definition Microphones™ will provide a substantially better drum sound than conventional microphones. The DrumKit™ Series three-microphone systems provide a more cohesive and unified drum sound. Youll hear more attack, more subtle detail and a more pristine quality in the sound than with any other microphones. The Earthworks drum microphones capture every nuance of sound from each piece of the drum set with such an exceptional clarity and cohesiveness, which make it sound like a live set of drums, not a bunch of pieces.

  • Improved impulse response for faster and more accurate transients
  • Shorter diaphragm settling time to prevent quieter attacks from being blurred by earlier loud attacks
  • Extended frequency response to 30 kHz to capture a crisper and more realistic image
  • Near perfect polar patterns that remain even across all frequencies and at any position within the pattern
  • More cohesive and unified drum sound
  • Hear more attack and subtle detail
  • Increased detail and dynamic range
  • Versatile, multi-use mics
  • Mics are protected in a high impact case
  • Fast setup and teardown
  • 2 TC25 omnis for overheads
  • 1 SR25 cardioid for kick drum
  • 1 KickPad™
  • 1 windscreen
  • Comes housed in a rugged carrying case
  • Ideal for use in an enclosed acoustic environment or in a drum room/booth

DK25/R Users Manual


Steve Gadd

Morgan, who has a stellar track record in his own right, was already a fan of Earthworks PianoMicTM calling it “the most beautiful piano system I’ve ever used.” In his second life as a journalist, Morgan also had written enthusiastic reviews about both the PianoMicTM and the Drum FullKitTM. As a friend and a trusted professional, Morgan insisted that Gadd give them a try on the James Taylor tour.

“I’ve had a lot of experience with Steve,” explains Morgan. “We took the Earthworks mics with us over to Europe this summer and the results were absolutely astounding. I’ve been sold on these mics from the very beginning and now Steve has become an Earthworks believer as well.”

On the James Taylor tour, Gadd plays a Yamaha drum set with a 20″ x 16″ bass drum, 12″ and 13″ rack toms and 14″ and 15″ floor toms. He’s also got a rack cowbell on the bass drum and four cymbals: two crashes, a ride, a sizzle and a hi-hat. The entire kit is miked using Earthworks’ Drum FullKitTM system; this includes (1) DP25/C (on the snare), (4) DP30/Cs (on the toms), (2) SR25s (overheads), (1) SR30 (on the hi-hat), (1) SR30 (on the kick drum) and a KickPad™.

Steve Gadd commented: “A lot of people were talking about these microphones, so I tried them out and they were really good. I have a lot of respect for Dave Morgan, who was very excited, and also got very positive feedback from everyone else involved. They said the dynamics of my playing were really coming through and that mics have a really great, natural sound.”
