Sennheiser MD 421 Turns 50!

scaled_e1278988184.jpgOLD LYME, Conn. – July 13, 2010 – This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the introduction of the classic Sennheiser MD 421-U large diaphragm, cardioid, dynamic microphone. The venerable MD 421, which is still in production as the MD 421 II, has been one of Sennheiser’s best-selling dynamic microphones for decades thanks to its durability, versatility, and ability to handle high sound pressure levels. Offering exemplary performance on voices, but equally effective on a wide range of acoustic and amplified instruments, the MD 421 continues to be an essential component of any microphone collection in the studio or on the road.

The MD 421 has been improved over the years with upgrades to the housing, output connector, basket, and capsule assembly. A limited-production MD 421 Special Edition that recaptured the full-bodied performance of the microphone’s original design was introduced in 2003 to commemorate the ninetieth birthday of Sennheiser founder, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fritz Sennheiser. The MD 421 II continues the tradition of the MD 421 while upgrading the original design in order to take advantage of improved production techniques and materials. more

Goo Goo Dolls Out with Sennheiser and Neumann

scaled_e1278535685.jpgOld Lyme, Conn., July 7, 2010 – The Goo Goo Dolls occupy a unique space in the music industry, having risen from a respectable decade in the underground to worldwide stardom. Now poised to release their ninth studio album, Something For The Rest Of Us, the Goo Goo Dolls are spending much of the summer selling out arenas. Veteran engineers Paul David Hager (FOH) and Robert Windel (monitors) are relying on Sennheiser and Neumann wireless and wired equipment for nearly every aspect of the Goo Goo Dolls’ live set. Frontman Johnny Rzeznik sings into a Sennheiser SKM 5200 handheld transmitter with a Neumann KK 104 S capsule, whereas bass player Robby Takac sings into a wired Sennheiser MD 431 II. Drummer Mike Malinin’s kit is a combination of Neumann and Sennheiser mics, including large-diaphragm TLM 103s for overheads and toms. The band’s impressive collection of basses and guitars run wireless on fourteen Sennheiser ew 572 G3 channels. Finally, with not a stage wedge to be seen, the whole band, along with several techs, use Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G3 wireless personal monitors to inspire performances worthy of the Goo Goo Dolls’ now legendary status.

Prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser dies

scaled_e1274277718.jpgOLD LYME, Conn. – May 19, 2010 – Late during the evening of May 17, 2010, only a few days after his 98th birthday, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fritz Sennheiser, audio pioneer and founder of today’s Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG, passed away. The audio industry has lost a huge figure, not only in terms of his technical expertise but also in terms of his humanity.

Through his company Prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser had a crucial influence on the development of sound transmission technologies and was instrumental in forging many ground-breaking developments in electroacoustics and transmission technologies. Under his guidance the first shotgun microphones and open headphones were created and he oversaw important developments in wireless radio and infra-red transmission. It was completely natural for Fritz Sennheiser to give his developers the “creative and technical freedom� they required. His humanity also shone through when – considering the significant workload involved in running an expanding company – he took time to share his knowledge with students, inspiring them with an enthusiasm for audio technology. In 1982 he retired from the management of the company, handing over to his son, Prof. Dr. sc. techn. Jörg Sennheiser. more
