A must have for pro-recording - Reviews Sennheiser MD 421

The Sennheiser MD 421 is a dynamic cardioid microphone,excellent for both live and studio usage. It's considered a classic and a must-have among professional recording studios around the world. It's incredibly versatile; you can record from drums, saxophones and percussion to guitars and even vocals. Although it should be considered that the mid-low range is where this microphone works best. In the studio we use it mainly for toms and guitars. It's somewhat expensive compared to other dynamic microphones, but in this case you are getting much more sound quality, so at the end you could say the price is reasonable.

OVERALL OPINION

One of the most important characteristics of this microphone is the ability to handle very high sound pressure levels, so it's ideal for miking drums and loud amps. Sound quality is top-notch.
In conclusion, I would't get any other microphone for recording drums (especially toms). If you are looking for a very versatile, resistant and precise microphone for recording in studio or live this should be your first choice!
