Earthworks SR20LS is a cardioid condenser microphone for kick drums, with a huge 150 dB SPL handling.

Whether you’re looking for something instantly gratifying, and endlessly shapeable for the studio, or a live mic to give your kick drum some serious beef, SR20LS is an extremely impressive option.

Unlike the vast majority of kick-drum-specific microphones, with their tailored-eq-for-purpose-built-in, SR20LS is ready to grab a full spectrum of sound, down to 20 Hz. According to Earthworks, you’ll captue “all of the deep, rich lows and crisp, natural highs you’re after”

Of course, for meat-and-potatoes, balls-out rock, this might not be the kick drum mic you’re looking for. However, if you’re the type who likes to think and act creatively in the studio, and when mixing live on a nice rig, SR20LS is a microphone that not only belongs in your kit – but also on your kick drum.
