Earthworks has unveiled the "new and improved" DP30/C Drum Periscope cardioid microphone. "After many recommendations from front of house engineers and drummers from all over the globe, the redesigned DP30/C features a thicker and more rugged gooseneck that will stay in place even when the snare or toms are struck extremely hard," offers Earthworks promotional material. "Once the durable microphone head is placed in the “sweet spot”, drummers will not have to worry about the DP30/C migrating."
The new DP30/C reportedly maintains the same sound quality and craftsmanship of the original.The microphone capsule housing is designed to protect the microphone capsule and withstand a direct hit from a drumstick. The electronics are housed in a cylindrical tube attached to the end of the gooseneck, providing a high level, low impedance output that will prevent radio frequency interference. The DP30/C has an incredibly fast impulse response that will allow the microphone to capture the full detail of the attack, while its short diaphragm settling time will allow users to hear a full bodied sound with subtle details that other microphones miss. The DP30/C will handle sound levels up to 145dB SPL with no audible distortion and its heavy construction will enable it to withstand the punishment of the road.
