Sennheiser MD421U-2

Florian aus O., 19.11.2009
The Sennheiser MD421U-2 is a microphone with qualities that can be used in the most diverse recording situations.
Just before the guitar amp and the toms, it is very popular and deserves to be cult status. And thanks to its bass switch, which can be set in five steps (from "S" like voice to "M" like music), the microphone is of course even more versatile.

In terms of processing, the microphone does not necessarily make the highest quality impression, but it is undoubtedly robust and still looks almost like new despite frequent use.
Something needed to get used to the holder of the microphone, which is absolutely necessary, since the untypical shape does not allow a standard microphone holder.

Overall, the Sennheiser MD421U-2 is a microphone which is often used, but unfortunately, compared to many other dynamic microphones, a slightly higher price. Therefore, if you only have homerecording and do not have professional sound studios, several microphones have to choose the appropriate sound, you should look for alternatives for the respective task. Especially for guitars, of course, there is a different, a lot cheaper classic.

Jack of all trades

Beatles-Fan, 30.12.2009
The Sennheiser MD 421U-2 is my first choice, because it is very robust and can be used for almost any recording situation, from voice and vocal recordings to Instrument Abnhame. I use the microphone primarily for the removal of acoustic guitars, both steel and nylon strings. The frequency response of the microphone runs almost linearly from 30 Hz to around 17 kHz. The sound reproduction is very transparent and can be further refined by a five-step bass setting. As a dynamic microphone, the Sennheiser MD 421U-2 does not require any phantom power, which is very convenient for outdoor recordings and recordings with various, even older recording devices.

For example, I like to use the Sennheiser together with an almost 30-year-old TEAC four-track tape recorder for analog recordings, which have a special charm.
