  • Extended frequency response from 20Hz-20kHz to capture more detail and dynamics of your playing
  • Ultra fast impulse response makes this microphone ideal for reproducing the full detail of the attack (note: impulse response has little to do with low frequency sounds)
  • Shorter diaphragm settling time prevents subtle details from being blurred by earlier loud attacks
  • Near-perfect cardioid polar pattern reproduces all specified frequencies uniformly at any position within the pattern
  • With over 30dB of rear rejection, it is ideal for live performances or recording environments where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments
  • High gain before feedback
  • 150dB SPL capability ensures the mic will not overload from the loudest of drum attacks
  • A right angle mic head is mounted to the gooseneck for easy positioning
  • The microphone head  housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick
  • Stiff mini-gooseneck that will not move when the drums are hit hard
  • Heavy stainless steel construction is able to withstand the punishment of touring
  • RM1 RimMount™ is included for mounting the DM20 on rim of snare or toms

“Really great sounding mic overall. Very clear and clean sounding. Details spoke nicely.”

Keith Carlock, Drummer

“Really love the design and how no mic stands are in the way. I think you have a real winner here. These will be THE tom mics in my studio.”

Carter McLean, Drummer
