Here a md 421 that has been converted from the HL version to xlr (without the eddy current filter). The mic fell onto the connector end and the filter was busted. I used the original filter housing to fit the xlr connector. So here again a great capsule in a shabby housing: there is some decoloration in the grey plastic but no cracks.A stand adapter is not included. For a stand adapter i suggest a cheap chinese one - as shown in the last picture. You may return this microphone within two weeks after receipt. If you do not want it for any other reason you will have to pay. The item "Sennheiser md 421, good sound xlr connector" is in sale since Wednesday, May 29, 2019.
