Earthworks SR30
Special Order

Smooth Sound for Every Application!

It's hard to truly do justice to the Earthworks SR30 microphone. The SR30 is a true performer, delivering a precise, natural sound you simply won't find on a lot of cardioid microphones. Unlike a lot of directional mics, the SR30 won't give you a hollow, "boomy" sound when used close to the source. The sound is smooth in whatever application. A favorite microphone for many recording artists, the SR30 hits high marks for clarity and realism in a directional mic.

What Does "Special Order" Mean?

A special-order product is one that we don't normally keep in stock. We order it from the manufacturer as soon as you order from us. We have great relationships with all the manufacturers we carry, so we can get your special order to you as fast as or faster than anyone else. Remember that special orders are non-returnable and non-cancelable, so make sure the item is right for you. A Sweetwater Sales Engineer can help you decide — call (800) 222-4700 for assistance!

How about a snare drum in your face?

Outstanding! I've tried so many mics on a snare drum, including SM57, Neumann KM84 (yes, old school), ribbons, you name it. This mic is the best yet. The capturing of the snare sound is fantastic. I usually mic the top of the snare with this, but point it a bit at the shell itself and run into an Avalon 737-SP w/ Babyface mod. It made me want to cry the first time I used it! It's also great on percussion and horns!
