The Earthworks SR20 is a professional performance microphone designed to handle the demands of professional sound reinforcement and recording applications. The SR20 features an electret condenser element with a cardioid polar pattern. The SR20's clean on-axis response provides maximum intelligibility of vocals while rejecting off-axis noise and feedback from ambiance and near by stage monitors. The microphone is capable of handling high Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) making it an exceptional choice for instrument capturing. A removable windscreen assembly unveils an alternate signal response that results in a wider pick up area, ideal for background vocals and choir pick up. The SR20 is an exceptional choice for stage performances, studio recording, presentations, houses-of-worship, meeting halls, board rooms and more.
Earthworks cardioid microphones have patented near-perfect cardioid patterns. The sound across the entire front hemisphere is remarkably uniform and is flatter at 90 degrees than most microphones are on-axis. The SR Series have an incredible transparent sound quality, offering near-perfect polar response and high rejection of sounds at the rear of the microphone, resulting in less leakage and more gain before feedback.
