The studio cardioid microphone MD 421 features a wide frequency response from 30 to 17,000 Hz.
Once it's printed, it’ll be enormously difficult to recreate the magic of the performance.
Its excellent sound qualities enable it to cope with the most diverse recording conditions and broadcasting applications while the five position bass control enhances its ‘all-round’ qualities.
One listen and you'll know why it's a classic!
The microphone was outside still in good shape and not physically abused, so my guess was that it had to do with iron dust…… Force is needed, but not so much to break the plastic. If the connector is out of the way, you will see a nut on the inside of the mic holding the capsule mounting rod.
Remove this nut and the capsule with the stainless steel grid will come off the front of the mic. As the mic was broken anyway and I had nothing to lose, I gently pealed (ripped..)the dust protection from the capsule with a pair of tweasers.
