The Earthworks P30/HC is a gooseneck microphone designed for instruments in both live performance and studio recording environments. Designed to provide an ultra flexible miking option, the P30/HC is ideal for a wide range of acoustic and electric instruments, as well as orchestra and choir.
Thanks to its flexible gooseneck, the P30/HC provides extra simplicity when trying to find that sweet spot. Instead of having to reposition the whole microphone or mic stand, simply flex the gooseneck to quickly reposition the microphone. Its uniquely designed small microphone head also allows you to get into difficult places, such as under the strings of an acoustic string bass.
The P30/HC’s near-perfect hypercardioid polar pattern is consistent across all frequencies, simplifying mic placement, ensuring more gain before feedback and virtually eliminating phasing issues when using multiple microphones. With over 30dB of rear rejection the P30/HC is ideal for live performances or recording environments where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments.
It handles transients with ease, reproducing every detail no matter how sharp or subtle. Handling up to 139dB SPL without distortion, it’s nearly impossible to overload the P30/HC, even with the loudest instruments.
