Optimized for excellent vocal reproduction
Sennheiser built the MK 4 microphone to fit the needs of both the professional studio and the home recording enthusiast. It's designed to capture vocals with exceptional fidelity, and we recommend that you also purchase the MKS 4 shock mount for best results when recording voices. The mic's gold-plated diaphragm is enclosed in a large capsule that's shock-mounted in a tough metal housing, so this mic will handle the occasional hard knock without a problem.
Versatile enough for other applications
You'll find the MK 4 a good choice for many other applications, especially instruments with a strong high-frequency presence like acoustic guitar, strings, and wind instruments. But this mic, with its large diaphragm and rugged construction, is equally at home with guitar amps, drums, or anything that rocks. The package includes the MK 4 microphone, a mounting clamp, and a carrying pouch.

Why a condenser mic?
Need to pull the full harmonic complexity from a solo cello? Want to make the most of that magnificent German studio grand piano you spent way too much for? Or maybe you understand that the magic of swing comes from the insistent ping of a deftly controlled ride cymbal, and you're determined to capture it in glorious detail. You'll likely end up with a condenser mic; these simply designed, yet incredibly precise, recording instruments are far more responsive to sonic vibration than their "dynamic" cousins (who, with some exceptions, are more appropriate for PA systems). Whatever your hi-fi recording needs, there's a condenser mic out there with your name on it.
