Product Description

One of the few classic dynamic microphones of our time, grab one for guitar cab and other duties! The MD421 II continues the tradition of the MD 421 which has been one of Sennheiser's most popular dynamic mics for over 35 years. The large diaphragm, dynamic element handles high sound pressure levels, making it a natural for recording guitars and drums.

One listen and you'll know why it's a classic.
