The P420 is a multi-pattern large diaphragm true condenser microphone for demanding project studio recording applications. Offering high sensitivity and 155dB maximum SPL, the P420 delivers a warm, transparent sound quality perfectly suited for ensemble recording, grand piano, woodwind and brass instruments, as well as drums and percussion. With three selectable polar patterns – cardioid, omnidirectional or figure 8 – it is an ideal tool for stereo miking techniques and ambient recording.

What the Pro’s are Saying

Sound on Sound:

Sound on Sound:

“As an instrument mic, the 420 comes over as well balanced and solid, handling high end detail smoothly without over hyping it or making everything sound too forward. It works well on acoustic guitar, producing a rich, homogenous sound that balances warmth with detail.”
