  • My favorite all around mic

    As reviewed by Humungo bass Monster on 9/27/2006

    I can't say enough good things about this Sennheiser MD421 mic. I use this for guitar cabs, my bass cabs, snare drum, and even vocals and it sounds great. It doesn't distort even when I dime the volume on my bass amp and it sounds balanced unlike my other mics like the shure sm57 or AKG D112 which either don't have enough high end or have too much low mid honk sound.

  • Best Mic I've Ever Had for Guitar Amp

    As reviewed by John LaFollette on 10/3/2008

    I've used a bunch of different mics on several different brands of guitar amps over the years. None come close to the clear full rich sound of the MD421. The best one before this was actually a PV kick drum mic, but the MD421 blows that in the weeds. I have always found SM57s, 58s, various Electrovoice, the Sennheisser E609 guitar mic, and others, to sound kind of thin, grainy, or honky. Most people love those mics, but I never have. They just could not duplicate the sweet rich glorious tones coming out of my amp. They ruined it actually. When I stick my ears in front of the speakers to hear the warm rich fullness coming out, those mics just do not translate that well at all. But the MD421 does. The sound is just full, rich, colorful and lively. No graininess or thinness whatsoever. fUnless I am playing on a PA system that is overly boomy, I leave the bass rolloff switch in the full-on position for a huge sound. Money very well spent if you are picky about sound quality.
