Easily capture tom drums, guitar cabs, horns, and more with natural open tone. A classic dynamic mic with high SPL handling, hypercardioid polar pattern, and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modeling — SD-7 gives you pro sound with precision, in any environment.

Record Through Five Famous Instrument Mics

SD-7 is powered by the same mic modeling technology found in Universal Audio’s award-winning UA Sphere microphones. With the included Hemisphere Mic Collection, it’s the only dynamic modeling mic that gives you the authentic sound of famous dynamics from Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic.*

A Modeling Mic That Works for You

SD-7 and the included Hemisphere Mic Collection plug-in work with or without UA hardware, and go way beyond subtle EQ curves to give you precise control over filter, proximity, and axis — an industry first. Just set up SD-7 and use the plug-in to quickly find that "sweet spot" for a guitar amp, or make horns pop through the mix.

Discover Your Best Sounds

From a rowdy stage to a quiet studio, SD-7’s ultra-high SPL capability makes it a perfect choice for loud, transient-rich sources. And thanks to its hypercardioid polar pattern, you're able to back the mic away for added "air" without sacrificing isolation.

Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style

With rugged all-metal construction, cool retro look, and hand-selected capsules, SD-7 gives you a trusted companion, reliably capturing your sources for a lifetime of professional performance.

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. This vintage version has slightly more coloration than current production models, making it useful on a variety of sources including electric guitar and vocals. Notable uses of the 409 include vocals for Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii concert video.


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.
