The SR25s for drum overheads are amazing. With the SR25s, the kit sounded super-open and natural—without the brittle top end I frequently hear from a lot of other condenser mics. I used the SR25s as overheads for a considerable amount of the snare and tom sounds. The Earthworks mics were a marked improvement over the previous microphones we’d used.

After I started miking his guitar amp with SR25s, he came back to me a couple weeks later and said that he could actually hear the difference between a worn plastic guitar pick and new plastic pick, because of the detail coming from the Earthworks microphone.

I was just floored. I could finally hear the definition of the cymbals and the openness of the drum set.
