Up for consideration is a vintage Sennheiser MD421-U5 dynamic mic -- the original, vintage MK I version, and not the cheaper, current MK II model. This is a great all-rounder dynamic mic that can be used in the studio or on stage for for drums, guitar amps, sax, and just about any other instrument. New, the cheaper, MK II version is selling for $379 each, so here is a great opportunity to own the originally much more expensive, and smoother-sounding, vintage MD421-U5, in very good, condition, and still cost less than a new one!!!

CLASSIC VINTAGE SOUND
MD421's have a great vintage character and smooth tone that they have found their way on thousands of album tracks, often on guitar amps, brass, drums, but also just about every other instrument imaginable. These can take a lot of SPL, have great tone, and the 5-position bass roll-off filter lets you tailor the bass respone in Voice Over, Studio and live sound situations.
