Upgrading your gear
With the dynamic MD 421-II, you will own a true all-rounder for almost any situation. Originally introduced in 1960 as the MD 421, this cardioid microphone classic ensures clear, natural sound while offering effective feedback rejection.
During the month of October, the Sennheiser MD 421-II is available at $199.95 (MSRP)
Thanks to its large diaphragm, the MD 421-II has a wide, condenser-like frequency response of 30 – 17,000 Hz. It is fitted with a five-position bass roll-off switch (from M for music to S for speech), which helps to compensate for the proximity effect where needed and reduces impact sound. The filter can also be dialled in if you prefer to place an emphasis on the higher frequencies, as may be the case with acoustic guitars or speech applications such as podcasting and streaming.
The MD 421-II has become a classic for recording guitar and bass amps and drums – toms and kick especially but also snares, and it has even been seen in overhead use. It also does a great job on all kind of percussion, saxophone, and brass, and is often used as an announcer or vocal microphone. You will find at least one MD 421, very old or brand-new, in almost every rental warehouse, music club or studio around the world. A true workhorse.
Detail and focus with the HD 200 PRO monitoring headphones
The closed, circumaural HD 200 PRO allows you to focus on your sound – no matter whether you are practicing, recording, playing or monitoring a gig or simply want to listen to your favorite music. The HD 200 PRO delivers powerful studio sound with wide dynamics, while effectively attenuating ambient noise. Its soft earpads and ergonomic design ensure the comfort you need for long music sessions.
The headphones are fitted with a rugged, single-sided cable (2m) with 3.5mm jack connector; an adaptor to 6.3mm jack is included.
