Sennheiser MD 421 II Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
In the 35 years since it was introduced, Sennheiser’s versatile and robust MD 421 has become a classic, and one of the company’s most popular dynamic microphones in the recording studio or on the road. The Sennheiser MD 421 II Dynamic Microphone continues the tradition, its large diaphragm, directional cardioid response and ability to handle high sound pressure levels making it the go-to choice for a broad range of instruments, including electric guitar, wind instruments (particularly brass) and drums, especially toms and percussion. Its full-bodied performance, clarity and switch-selectable low-frequency roll-off control also lends itself to group vocals and radio broadcast applications.

one of my favorite dynamic mics
I have 3 of these and wouldn't trade them for the world. My go to Tom mic, alternate guitar cab mic, or bass cab. Just does the job every time.
On the recommendation of Jacob from VK Just bought a set of 3 for my toms. Their everything I've read about and imagined. Powerful, punchy, in your face - can kiss the toms closely without breaking up
The 421 is killer on toms. Just the right amount of sensitivity so as not to pick up resonances and too much bleed. Takes EQ great..not to mention it takes a beating from stray stick hits year after year!
