Extraordinarily Accurate Mics!

This is the Matched Pair version of the QTC30! That's right, two QTC30s in one package!

Earthworks QTC30 is an extraordinarily accurate microphone. It provides that famous EarthworksSound with lower self noise than was thought possible with such a small a diaphragm. The QTC30 delivers flat, extended Time Coherent response from below 6Hz to beyond 30kHz, typically within +/-0.5dB from 20Hz-20kHz. More importantly, its impulse response is faster and cleaner than any other recording microphone we have measured except our own QTC1. Its clean impulse performance allows the QTC30 to transduce wave forms exactly giving you a true and accurate representation of sonic events as they happen in the air. What this means for you is stunning, lifelike realism. It offers you the experience of being there.

The QTC30 is among the best possible choices for ambient room miking but it is also exquisite for close miking of quieter more delicate sources. This microphone is a very good choice for all applications where natural, uncolored pick up of sound is the desired result. The QTC30 effortlessly captures the full size and natural texture of many difficult and complex sources ranging from Location Recording of Classical, Jazz, Ethnic, Folk and Pop music to Percussion, Piano, Guitar, Upright Bass, Strings, Vocals, Brass, and Woodwinds.It is also useful for those applications when you want to capture natural sounds with the feeling of reality intact, like Sound Effect, Foley, ADR, Sampling, Birdsong and even the subsonic calls of elephants.

If you prefer transparency over coloration, a matched pair of QTC30s is a 'must have'. Listen! You can hear all of the sound with the QTC30. It sounds like you are there. This is the microphone of your dreams!

You need these mics!

These "silver bullet" mics are phenomenal. Place them as close as you want without having to worry about excessive bass and capture nuances of the sound you've only dreamed of. Very quick and accurate response allows these mics to get the transients right and they provide great air and sense of space. I love these for acoustic guitar.

Tremendously Accurate

This is a very accurate and detailed mic pair. They reproduce exactly what you put into them. Transients are very fast and accurate, frequency response is very flat. They fill the role of accurate detailed mics exceptionally well, but you'll want a different set of mics for "colored" mics. Mic placement is very important. Placed correctly on an acoustic guitar they will sound fantastic, placed poorly they will reveal every string noise or every bit of boominess from the body of the guitar.
