Sennheiser MD 421-II overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser MD 421-II Microphone is a cardioid, dynamic microphone popularized by the recording and broadcast industry. The MD 421-II is favored for its ability to handle a variety of applications due to its flexible bass control. The microphone features a 5-position bass roll-off switch and frequency response of 30 to 17,000 Hz. The cardioid polar pattern effectively rejects off-axis noise due to room acoustics and noise, and also provides effective feedback rejection often caused by monitors positioned within close proximity.

The MD 421-II features a dynamic capsule, allowing even signal response whether close-up or at a reasonable distance. This is particularly useful for broadcast applications, where announcers and DJs can refrain from remaining absolutely stationary. The MD 421-II also handles very high sound pressure levels, making it suitable for miking instruments high in transient (peak) response.

Dynamic Capsule
The MD 421-II features a dynamic capsule, resulting in even signal response in close and reasonable distances as well as the capacity to handle high SPL levels.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern is effective in attenuating off-axis noise and ambiance. The cardioid polar pattern is also effective in rejecting feedback due to monitors.
5-Position Bass Roll-Off
The 5-position low frequency roll-off switch offers flexible bass attenuation allowing the microphone to be used in a variety of situations.

    MD 421-II Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for guitar cabs So far I have found this to be a good, versitile mic that works well with guitar amps. i haven't fully expirimented with the 5 rolloff settings, but have had the best results so far wiith the middle setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A prueba de todo uso... Este es un microfno, conocido por su versatilidad en materia de grabacin de cualquier naturaleza, ademas de contener en si mismo, la esttica de la industria discogrfica que conocemos hoy. En mi caso, investigando en Venezuela, pas donde vivo, me doy cuenta de que ha tenido usos muy interesantes, desde los aos 70s ha formado parte del equipo utilizado para el registro de las manifestaciones musicales tradicionales en latinoamerica, por parte de la institucin en etnomusicologa ms importante de Latinoamerica FUNDEF, dando altsimas prestaciones profesionales en los ambientes mas hostiles como lo son la Selva Amaznica o los desiertos de mdanos de Coro, o el destructivo ambiente salino de Las Antillas en el Mar Caribe.Es por esto que eleg este micrfono dinmico para mis trabajos de registro sonoro etnogrfico.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Microphone for VO's! We use this mic for television commercial production voice overs. Its solid with terrific response and great sound! I'm not a huge fan of the blade mount but for the price and quality; I'd take it anyday over more expensive alternatives.
