Despite minor well know phasing issue (which only occurs under very specific conditions) and a kinda crappy integrated clip, 421s are a staple of many studios for a slew of good reasons. I use them primarily as tom mics and am much happier with their range (especially on mids and mid-lows) compared to similarly priced alternatives. Very happy to finally own a pair.
