TOM & SNARE MICROPHONE

DM20

Intelligent design. Sonic accuracy.
Robust build.

A bold new approach to miking toms and snare.

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. Crafted out of stainless steel, its rugged build guarantees uniform performance, on the stage and in the studio.

Isolation Like Never Before

Massive rear rejection and a polar pattern that’s consistent across the entire frequency range means any off-axis leakage is virtually nonexistent.
