my favorite mic
marshall545, 21.07.2021
I bought this mic to record guitar amps which is a standard, I use it along with the shure SM57 and the results are the best!!! Also, I was amazed by how good it sounded on female vocals, on which I use it regularly now. No wonder why Ella Fitzgerald used it on her live performance in 1974. Now, in comparison to the old white one, I have tested them both and I can say the white one has some vintageness to it, but other than that, I liked the black one more. Sennheiser have really taken their white, classic mic and brought out the best of it with this product.

A great classic...
gmartina, 12.05.2020
One of the best dynamic microphones for almost all instruments, especially for the drum on live or studio session. There’s nothing better for tom drum, but it’s a little awkward and heavy. Maybe is a little pricey overall though.

A must for the studio
James2242, 19.05.2014
I love this microphone. It's great on toms and amps, it's a really versatile microphone. It even works nice on some vocals. My only issue with it is the clip. It works a gem but I constantly grab the mic and inadvertently release it from it's holder. Thankfully I catch it every time but I know someday it's going to hit the floor.

Amazing Microphone
Ink, 08.12.2014
This Sennheiser MD421-II Microphone its just amazing for studio aplications.
i love to use it on electric guitar cabinets, small drum toms and eventualy on kick drum. I like to use this mic with an SM57 for get an overall picture of a creamy distortion.
I feel that this microphone is also perfect for small drum Toms like 10" or 12".
i highly recommend this microphone.
