Earthworks DP30/C - To call this a Tom Mic would be like calling the Mona Lisa a Painting

That subject line caught my attention.  Maybe the author should write marketing materials, as opposed to microphone reviews.  If you're interested in reading more about a really high-quality drum microphone, check it out.  I don't think that I could even begin to write a review like this, so I'll remind you that I didn't.

This reviewer admits to some "pointless digressions" but I thought that his observations were worth a read.   If nothing else, I liked this comment in review of the new and improved DP30 snare & tom drum mic.

A point of interest is that the reviewer provides links to mp3's of non-drum recordings made with the DP30 so that you can hear the quality and versatility of the DP30.

Designed as a tom microphone, the DP30/C features a new and strengthened flexneck to better resist movement and aid positioning, along with a new machined "aluminum conic capsule back" to deflect direct stick hits, and the fastest transient response of any drum mic across 30hz-30khz. That last part is according to Earthworks, but I have no reason to not believe them.

The DP30 can also be purchased with or without the RM1 rim mount bracket. $799 without the RM1 and $999 with the RM1.
