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.

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.

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.
