You need this

I've used this mic on snare drums with great results but I stopped because the drummers kept hitting it with the drumsticks! Works on pretty much everything. Expensive but worth it. Great looking mic too. I don't know if they used this mic for the actual recording but check out the video: Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty - Stop Draggin' My Heart Around.

a must!!

It is an incredible microphone, works on everything you want to use it, it's incredible on vocals, cymbals, and drums. It's a bit pricey but definitely worth having at least one pair

If you need one mic, this is it.

Worth every penny! Great mic that works in a variety of situations. Has a brightness switch and 5 different low cut points make this a versatile mic that can be used in a lot of situations and give you the option of many sounds. Love it especially on flute, but honestly, it's sounded fantastic on anything I've put it on. Vocals are smooth on this, too. Also a secret weapon on kick drums but you didn't hear that from me. Each mic comes in a nice hard plastic case along with an individual printout for the exact frequency plot of that specific mic. Nice attention to detail. There's a reason that most studios have a few of these kicking around. Also build quality is superb. It seems expensive but when you get it and use it, you'll feel it's worth every penny. I do.

I was lucky to get mine for the price I paid, but these mics are AWESOME! I was fortunate enough to use one in the past few years thanks to my sound guy. I bought one and I have used in guitar cabs, floor toms, kick, and vocals. I love this mic. They are hands down the best, most natural sounding dynamic mics out there. I love it so much on a cab. If you can afford it, get one!!

Have two of 441 mics and soon to purchase another. I've used them to record for just about anything instrument you can imagine, they're FANTASTIC Mics. One of the great things about this mic is it's impressive sensitivity and ability to handle loud instruments levels. One day I was recording a band live and the drummer's floor tom mic sound muffled, nothing like the deep rich tone that it had. I threw on a 441 and I was amazed, literally one of the best sounding Floor toms I have ever heard recorded. Luscious and deep, clear and articulate...WOW.
