OLD LYME, Conn. â€“ July 13, 2010 â€“ 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 Sennheiserâ€™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 microphoneâ€™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…
Old Lyme, Conn., July 7, 2010 â€“ 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 Dollsâ€™ 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 Malininâ€™s kit is a combination of Neumann and Sennheiser mics, including large-diaphragm TLM 103s for overheads and toms. The bandâ€™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 Dollsâ€™ now legendary status.
