Modern Drummer

“The sound of the TC25s versus our usual mics was that the attack was much crisper and clearer, especially on cymbals.”

“Detail and realism is where the Earthworks DrumKit excels. The set will undoubtedly appeal to engineers more interested in capturing the sound of drums as opposed to artificially creating that sound.”

“Earthworks microphones all seem to share a special character when it comes to transient detail, and the TC25 omni mics supplied here are no exception. Rigged as conventional spaced mics above an average jazz-oriented drum kit, they delivered a pleasing, natural, and spacious sound, with lots of subtle transient detail and finesse.”

“The sound of the kit was detailed and focused. I could hear every nuance. The kick was deep and full, the snare and toms maintained a great balance of top end and bottom end, and the cymbals were open and airy.”

“The TC25s sounded more “natural”, reproducing what it really sounded like in the room.”

“I’ll end by reiterating that every drum session I’ve engineered in the past five or six years has employed one or more Earthworks mics. The detail that they offer, especially in terms of transient response, is unequalled by any other mic that I’ve used.”

Of course, the beauty of the DK25 DrumKit System is that it gives you three killer microphones you can also use for other applications. The mics came in handy in the studio that day, because I didn’t like the acoustic piano sound we were getting, even though we were using a very popular set of studio microphones.

Rob Shrock, Electronic Musician

They are also very natural sounding–I like this because when I start mixing, I am starting with a natural sounding drum. What I hear in the studio is what I want to hear on playback. I have used the best of the best, and the Earthworks High Definition Microphones are just unreal.

Ronnie Vannucci, The Killers

All the house engineers and drummers I work with comment on how clear and articulate the sound of the drums are using the live drum kit system. The ability of these mics to handle the sharp attack transients without my using a lot of compression provides a more natural sounding instrument in the live setting.

Engineer

These are the best mics on the market for drummers of all styles. Until I discovered Earthworks, I was never able to use a single microphone brand for my recording work.
