In the USA, we have a handful of broadcast classic microphones, used on-air for radio/television. The Sennheiser MD 421 is definitely among the broadcast elite.
The Sennheiser MD 421 recently celebrated its 50th birthday. As with all classic microphones, minor tweaks have been made along the way, but the same classic 421 sound remains unchanged. For a dynamic, the 421-II sounds nice and bright. The very aggressive 5-step low-pass filter allows for a dramatic change in sonic character.
In this Vidcast, I take the MD 421-II around the block in Studio1A, demonstrating the filter, its bright sound and unique mounting bracket. All these things make the Sennheiser MD 421-II a trusted studio staple.
