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.

Classic microphone that keeps delivering
EF., 05.06.2014
Really great microphone that delivers what the MD421 has done for years and will by it nice quality keep on making results for many years to come.
Mostly used it as microphone for my saxophones and works great both live and in the studio.

indispensable
dimi hendrix, 04.11.2019
Great mic, I use it mainly for guitar cab, in combination with ribbon mic. Works also great on percussion, not so much on bass cab or speech imo. I would not hesitate to buy this mic again immediately if lost or stolen. Never gone back to the sm57 since, this is now the reference for me for dynamic mics imo.

Useful warm clear
Kirschner, 15.08.2013
I use it for guitars, (both acoustic and electric) contrabass, cajon, conga, darbuka, snares, and as a secondary unit for vocals (using a lot of compression and distortion)

Great device, warm clear sound, better than my favorite, the sm 57
