THE FLAGSHIP CYMBAL
& HI-HAT MICROPHONE

Lightning speed. Staggering performance.

Seen everywhere.
Heard everywhere.

You hear the Earthworks SR25 cymbal microphone on nearly every online drumming channel. You see it out with all the top tours and best engineers. You feel it on your favorite albums. The SR25s have become the go-to cymbal, hi-hat and drum overhead microphone on top studio sessions, during the biggest festivals, and showcased on every drum video. They’ve been the hallmark of success and the fastest way to get the fullest sound. And now, the second generation builds on everything that the industry expects while improving on all aspects of usability and performance. We kept everything that you loved while giving you more of everything else that you asked for — and while typically used as stereo pairs, the singles are perfect for getting that extra sound on hi-hats and other speciality cymbals.

New Active
Electronics

We’ve hardened the internal electronics to draw less phantom power and we’ve built in additional protection features to safeguard against accidental hot swapping. We all know that you shouldn’t plug in a condenser microphone with the power engaged but we also know that’s an inevitably in the field sometimes. These new stacked changes make the SR25 Gen 2 more robust, more compatible, and more user-friendly.

SMALLER FOOTPRINT

LIGHTER WEIGHT

Built for touring.
But used everywhere.

The 2nd Gen SR25 hi-hat and cymbal microphone is incredibly versatile and is built for live sound reinforcement. It captures all the details of a condenser microphone, but performs with the usability of a dynamic mic. This makes it ideal for streaming and video recordings and also for all studio work environments.

The consistent pattern control enables more directionality and usability ensuring that you keep a good tone and volume level even when vocalists pull away. And the tight pattern control across all frequencies offers maximum feedback rejection.
