The Sennheiser MD421-II is considered a classic dynamic microphone that’s suitable for various recording situations and instruments. It looks like Thomann is selling its stock at a seriously reduced price! Will there be another successor? Hard to say – so maybe this is your purchase opportunity!
Sennheiser MD421-II Dynamic Microphone
The MD421-II has been long-valued as a versatile microphone for studio and live applications. The dynamic mic is suitable for speech, vocals, wind instruments, guitars, drums (especially toms, but also snare) and is particularly good at recording guitar cabinets. Especially paired with the Shure SM57!
The five-stage switch for bass roll-off also makes the MD421-II quite flexible. Great feedback isolation and transparent sound reproduction are among the rest of the mic’s properties. That, and a frequency reproduction of 30Hz to 17kHz, along with a sturdy, rugged build.
