DK7 Gen 2

THE FLAGSHIP
OF ALL DRUM MIC KITS

The Very Best of the Best.

Because you care about how your drums actually sound.

You picked the best cymbals, you chose your favorite wood tones, you obsessed over your snare sound — your drum tunings are perfect and your kit is immaculate. So why would you even think about anything other than an Earthworks DK7? And now with the 2nd generation DM20s and SR25 overheads, the all-new 2nd generation DK7 is even more luxurious. Even if you’re just recording your practice sessions at home, your drums deserve this level of quality and craftsmanship.

ASTONISHING

Earthworks Everywhere.

There’s a reason that the DK7 has taken live sound reinforcement by storm. Even seasoned engineers who have been on the road for over 30 years stop what they’re doing the minute that they hear a DK7 through the PA system. The presence and power are arresting. No one gets drum sounds like that — and so tour after tour, that Earthworks sound has been spreading like wildfire.

On Stage, in the Studio, and Streaming.

On stage, in the studio, and showcased on every top streaming channel, the DK7 has become the must-have drum microphone kit. It was the definition 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.

The isolation is way better. It’s tight with more focus. Whatever you aim it at, you get. No more side-chain to compress cymbals. No more leakage. Toms can get their own bus now.

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 DK7 Gen 2 more robust, more compatible, and more user-friendly.

New Rim
Mounting System

Everything about the DK7 Gen 2 is designed for speed — and that includes the speed of set up and tear down. The new and improved rim mounting solution for the tom and snare drums saves massive amounts of time while delivering a much better user experience. And it’s compatible with even more kits and percussive instruments.
