Exceptional Audio Fidelity

The Earthworks SR20 utilises omnidirectional pickup pattern, ensuring you capture every nuance of the original sound no matter the direction of the microphone. This makes the TC20 ideal for capturing a range of different sources from acoustic guitars to vocals and more. The wide frequency range (10Hz – 20kHz) ensures you capture every part of the source material, delivering exceptional audio quality no matter the source. The fast impulse response and diaphragm settling time minimises any dropouts and eliminates any stress the microphone may incur from louder sources. The result is highly transparent, accurate and uncoloured audio, ideal for studio quality recordings for a range of different applications.

Perfect For Recording Loud Sources

The TC20’s versatility is only matched by its performance, delivering an exceptional flat frequency response, as well as being time coherent for a natural and uncoloured sound. The high SPL range (up to 150dB) ensures you can capture virtually any source at any time without having to worry about damaging the internal circuitry. This makes the microphone perfect for a wide range of musical applications, from capturing studio-quality vocal recordings, to using the TC20 as a room/ambient mic, picking up every nuance thanks to its omnidirectional polar pattern. It’s also great for live sound, allowing you to use the TC20 to mic up instrument amps, drums and brass with ease.
