One of my MD421s broke this weekend. I grabbed it to mic up a guitar at a show, and the clip wouldn't stay in, so I took a look, and the body of the mic broke. There is a small missing chip that contains part of the mic that holds the clip in. I'm guessing that I would have to replace the whole body of the mic to fix it, and they'll probably charge, oh, about $400 to do it - plus shipping too! Guess I'll just have to glue the clip to the mic. And maybe reinforce it too somehow seeing how flimsy the clips are.
