A bold new approach to miking toms and snare.

The Earthworks CMK4 eliminates the gap between form and functionality, sparking new levels of performance. From the rich, mid lows to the crisp, airy highs, sacrifices in sound are a thing of the past with the 4 DM20 condenser mics found in the kit. And crafted out of stainless steel, its rugged build means it is equally at home on the road as it is in a studio.

Translate Your Sound

Your drums. Your sound. The DM20 makes whatever drum you’re miking sound like just that―you. Whatever you put in front of the microphone comes back to you without hyping or hiding anything. Just a crystal clear translation of your sound.

Isolation Like Never Before

Massive rear rejection and a polar pattern that’s consistent across the entire frequency range means any off-axis leakage fades smoothly into the background in the mix.

Lightning Fast

Nothing compares to the lightning speed of the DM20. No smearing. No reflections. No unwanted coloration. Just a refreshingly crisp sound with every detail, every nuance, and every texture flawlessly intact that make your drums come to life.

Electrifying Onstage 

Most live sound microphones sacrifice sound quality with big heavy dynamic capsules that move too slowly to capture the subtle high frequency details in the attack of a drum. Not the DM20. Its small diaphragm capsule coupled with a proprietary Class A amplifier circuit delivers an incredible transient response that’s meant for drums.
