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

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.

Great mic that works for some not all
Guildner, 24.02.2020
This mic works great on some sources I tried it on (cabs, toms) and is not that great on others IMO (vocals/acoustic). I am happy that I bought it, it is fantastic when it works. A better allrounder IMO would be the M88 but this is a classic and good to have in the locker.

slap this one between two toms, or infront of a LGT amp and damn nearly see the clarity in your recording.

I love this mic. full marks!

A classic - with good reason!
Claydon, 27.09.2015
Recently upgraded to these from a pair of e604 mics. The difference in quality is instantly apparent - much more 'hi-fi'. The clarity is very impressive, and low end response well tuned to recording toms, guitar cabs, vocals and beyond. The stepped filter is useful but I rarely feel the need to use it! Amazing microphone.

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.

New design has a plastic body
13.10.2015
The new design of this has a plastic body which makes it look a bit like a badly made toy. The older design was much better. However the standard and quality of the mic are as good as ever. 5 stars for everything but the construction of the body.

Great mic.
Richard9890, 14.10.2015
Only used these on toms but very natural sounding.

Annoying clip on them though. When taking mic cables out I've lost count of the times I've knocked the attachment clip and watched it fall onto the tom!
