Exceptional Audio Fidelity

The Earthworks SR20 utilises a cardioid pickup pattern and a small diaphragm condenser capsule to ensure optimal audio quality, with natural on-axis pick up and smooth uncoloured off-axis rejection. This makes it perfect for a range of musical applications, allowing you to record a wide range of instruments as well as vocals. The wide frequency response (50Hz – 20kHz) ensures you capture every nuance of the original audio as it was intended, perfect for capturing thick and powerful bass as well as clear and intense highs. With the windscreen attached, the SR20 eliminates any plosives and popping you may incur while recording vocals, ensuring optimal audio quality while the patented uniform polar response delivers more gain before feedback than most other microphones.

Versatile Functionality

The SR20 is designed for a wide range of musical applications, allowing you to record practically any source you wish, from instruments to vocals. The condenser capsule and design of the SR20 means you can accurately recording a voice with the same precision and quality up to 90 degrees off-axis, delivering the same stellar audio quality from the front and side of the microphone. This is ideal for vocalists as they tend to move around more than instrumentalists, allowing you to perfectly capture every subtlety of their voice with ease. Once the windscreen is unscrewed, the SR20 can be used as an instrument microphone, perfect for everything from pianos to guitars and drums. The versatile nature of the SR20 makes it ideal for both live and studio recording applications, providing exceptional audio performance and response at all times.

Uniformed Response

One of the most unique characteristics of the SR20 is its ability maintain accuracy and a uniformed frequency response throughout the pickup pattern. This ensures all your recordings will be uniformed in sound, no matter the source; making the SR20 perfect for recording everything from percussion to vocals. The extreme accuracy results in no ‘smearing’ of the low-level signals, producing a dominant and powerful response no matter the input level.
