Perception 420 is a multi-pattern large-diaphragm condenser microphone for more demanding professional studio recording applications. Offering high sensitivity and 155 dB maximum SPL, the Perception 420 delivers a warm transparent sound quality ideally suited for ensemble recording, grand piano, woodwind and brass instruments as well as drums and percussion instruments. In addition, three selectable polar patterns – cardioids, omnidirectional or figure eight – allow a wide range of stereo making techniques and ambient recording.

A switchable bass cut filter and preattenuation pad enable the Perception 420 to be used close to sound sources in sound fields as high as 155 dB.

The microphone's chassis is made of precision-tooled zinc/aluminum alloy and boasts a dent resistant stainless-steel wire-mesh front grille. It comes complete with a spider-type shock mount in an aluminum carrying case

    I really like this mic. It's a jack of all trades kind of mic which gives clear, warm sounds in a variety of settings. For someone who is just getting started this is a great microphone for the price.
