Included Hemisphere Mic Models

Based on a modern 421, which has a slightly brighter and harder sound than earlier iterations this is likely the most famous tom mic of all time, and is also no slouch on kick drum or brass instruments.

Based on a rare early 421 with script logo, this model has slightly more vintage character, making it useful for warming up your guitar amplifiers, drums, or even vocals.

This model is based on a vintage 1960's ribbon microphone with rich mid-forward character notably used on famous rock recordings, from Jimi Hendrix's screaming guitar amp to a pair used to record drums for "When the Levee Breaks" by Led Zeppelin.

Based on the earliest version in the 409 line of microphones.

The classic 441 has been used on countless records, from Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty to Tame Impala. Many engineers and artists have relied on this model for its balanced and natural sound on vocals, snare drums, and guitar amps.
