This microphone by now truly Vintage, CANNOT be forgotten thanks to its simplicity BUT to "exceptional" quality! The SENNHEISER MD427 PROFISOUND, original made in Germany, is the younger brother of the 431 both from the renowned Profipower series. No switch on the body and this is considerably a plus. Cannon XLR connection of course. Super Cardioid microphone, the same Sennheiser, declares it one of the most exceptional and successful microphones. High quality, robustness (especially the capsule cover, which is also shockproof) and special performance with voice, generally spoken both in the studio and live but also surprising for the recovery of instruments, especially electric. High insensitivity to external and movement noise, the proximity effect is minimized. Last but not least there is a hum compensating coil.
The microphone is totally NEW in original box and packaging, never used, except for verification. Absolutely perfect operation. The package includes its original holder and manual-datasheet.
