Well worth the investment!

Product Review

Took me a while to decide on which mics to buy for my toms and ending up buying 3 of these mics. They sound great. Thus far I am satisfied with the results. Price is up there but for the sound it’s worth the cost.

Great Dynamic Mic

Product Review

I really enjoy using this mic. Highly recommended. I use it for a lot of different sources, including vocals (and of course, guitars and toms.) I've owned some of the older versions and I like the newer ones because they are consistent. I currently own 3 of these.

421 is one of the best

Product Review

We got two or these because they are a standard for tomorrow mics and they work better then so many other mics on the market. Ams has been helping us for many years now and they are probably the best thing that can happen to a working studio team. Many Thanks to our friends at AMS.

Pretty darn great

I haven't had it for too long but it seems to be a well built german made mic.

This microphone is a wonderful dynamic microphone. I really enjoy the five setting rolloff feature. You can have everything from a nice rich low end, to a crisp nice high end.

It's a very simple cardioid only microphone. Just plug it in make sure everything else is on and set how you want.

Like I said, the tone is versatile. I use it primarily for recording guitar and bass cabs but it is also good on toms, radio broadcasting and even kick drum.

Another got to have mic.

These are built lighter than they used to be but still very solid

The 5 way bass roll off is very nice.

There are no instructions on what the roll off positions represent(hence the 4 on ease of use)

Classic 421, slightly bright, slightly open.Sounds pretty darn good on anything you'll use it on. This is a industry standard mic for guitar cabs, bass cabs and drums. You can't go wrong with this mic.

A GORGEOUS GODDESS FOR DRUMS, BASS CABS, AND INSANE METAL VOCALS

BUILT LIKE A BRICK HOUSE, I HAVE ANOTHER ONE FROM THE EARLY 80'S, VERY WELL MADE AND SOLID, MY OLDER ONE IS HEAVY ENOUGH TO USE AS A DOORSTOP, SHE STILL SOUNDS AMAZING

THE BASS ROLL-OFF SWITCH ALLOWS MANY SOUND COLORS-NOTMUCH MORE TO ASK FOR HERE

SUPER EASY TO SET UP AND USE, THE OLD STYLE CLIP ADAPTER TO MOUNT ON A REG STAND IS A TOTAL PAIN IN THE BUTT, THIS CLIP BREAKS OFF OR IS LOST, IT'S NOT GOOD, SENNHEISER MUST DESIGN A SEMI-OR TOTAL SHOCK MOUNT FOR THIS ONE, IT IS AN OBSOLETE MOUNT FOR THIS MIC

THUNDER ON TOMS AND SNARE, VERY NICE ON BASS AND GUITAR CABS, CLOSE TO AN RE20 ON KICK DRUMS, GREAT FOR THRASH METAL LEAD VOCALS AND HOWLS/SCREAMS
