CardioidEarthworks Audio DP25/C

Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The Earthworks DP25/C is an electret gooseneck condenser with extended frequency response. It is intended for close miking snare drum.

The mic uses a 9mm Cardioid electret capsule mounted on a flexible mini-gooseneck, allowing unobtrusive placement in difficult-to-reach positions, such as around a drum kit.

Sound On Sound - 2010
The cardioid pattern of both the DP25C and DP30C is very tight across all frequencies in the 180-degree hemisphere in front of the capsule, which means that any off-axis frequency-response anomalies across the spectrum are negligible. Also, the response of both mics to transients seemed to be extremely fast—and whether that’s due simply to the small-diaphragm design, or the circuitry described above, the result is an especially crisp, clean and tight sound that sounds, well… just like the thing at which you point it.

The DP25/C was discontinued in 2012, with the release of the DP30/C, which has a superior gooseneck and head design.

The Earthworks Audio DP25/C is also known as: DP25.
