The core of your drum sound.

Overheads and kick are a wide-angle lens capturing the full picture of your drum kit. The vividness, realism and lifelikeness in that picture depend on two factors: the quality of the sounds captured by the individual microphones, and how seamlessly the sounds from those microphones blend together. The three-microphone DK3 kit redefines what’s possible in drum miking.

Picture Perfect
A perfect sonic image of your whole kit from above. A pair of Earthworks SR25 cardioids bring transparency, clarity, and attack to your drum sound.

Punch Through the Mix
Don’t be fooled by its size. The SR20LS is a revolution in bass drum miking. A small diaphragm condenser that goes all the way down to 20Hz and handles 150dB SPL, the SR20LS missing nothing and single handedly does a job that often requires two mics or more.

Your Sound
Your drums are you voice, and details matter. Laser-focused on delivering your sound, each microphone in the DK3 is engineered with razor-flat, extended frequency response and time coherence. Every detail, every nuance, and every texture flawlessly intact, making your drum sound come to life.

Speed Where You Need It
Most live performance microphones sacrifice sound quality with big heavy dynamic capsules that move too slowly to capture the subtle details in the attack and texture of drums and cymbals. Not the mics in the DK3. Small diaphragm condenser capsule coupled with a proprietary Class A amplifier circuit delivers sound that deeply connects the audience to the stage.

Build a Legacy
Precision machined from stainless steel, each microphone in the DK3 is a stunning instrument designed for your whole career, on the road and in the studio.

Charts

It’s insane how clear and balanced they are. RIDICULOUS!

Juan Carlito Mendoza, DRUMMER

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.

Pete Keppler, FOH ENGINEER

With a kick drum and these two overhead mics, I don’t need to add any other mic inputs into the drum kit. That’s how powerful the overheads are in drum miking.

Greg Price, FOH ENGINEER

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

Mark Corben, FOH ENGINEER
