Heil Sound PR30

The Heil PR 30 represents completely new dynamic microphone technology designed for a wide range of professional applications such as sophisticated recording, live sound, and commercial broadcast. Its smooth, wide frequency range sounds like a ribbon but can withstand large amounts of SPL. Outperforming the tired, 30 year old technology of the industry, the large diameter of the PR 30's dynamic element produces an outstanding upper mid range that makes the PR 30 the absolute best guitar microphone in the industry today, while still an excellent choice for reproducing the human voice.

Since 1982, Heil Sound has been the leading manufacturer of communications microphones and has a paramount understanding of phasing. When properly applied, this knowledge creates outstanding cardioid patterns with unbelievable rear rejection that removes unwanted sounds that try to enter from the off axis rear. The pattern control of the Heil PR 30 is outstanding. This exceptional performance is achieved by using the ideal combination of materials for the large low mass diaphragm and a special mixture of neodymium, iron, and boron that gives the PR 30 the strongest magnet structure available. These features allow the microphone to achieve magnificent dynamic range. A unique screen system using two different diameter mesh screens and an internal breath blast filter allow the user to talk closely to the microphone with little worry of pops or excessive sibilance. The large diameter dynamic element is mounted in a unique shock mount atop a non-resonant fixture, decoupling the element from the massive steel body. This body and the internal hum bucking coil removes any worry of using the PR 30 near monitor screens or noisy lighting fixtures and controls. The new technology of the Heil PR 30 has redefined the dynamic microphone with superior wide frequency response, the lowest presence of noise in the industry, flawless design, and elite quality expected by an innovator and leader in the field. Your ribbon microphones will now be jealous.

"I don't use Heil's exclusively, but they do get used regularly, particularly the PR30's. When I'm using them, I typically use PR30's for snare, toms, electric guitar, and bass guitar, PR40's for bass drum, bass guitar, and male vocals, PR20's for hand head vocals or snare drum, and the Handi-Mic for harmonica or for micing up headphones for the "lo-fi" effect. I'm so glad Heil has put out this new line of mics. With the fast-paced aggressive music I record, it's great to have a microphone, which combines the urgency of a dynamic, with the speed, clarity, and detail of a condensor. The PR30, in particular, has made my year!"
~Kurt Ballou (Producer)

"Heil microphones are unbelievable. Bob Heil brought them to the rehearsal studio and we were just blown away by the sound. We've never sounded better. We play pretty loud and the Heil mics simply can't be over driven, from a cymbal crash to close micing a stack. I really like the PR 30 for live vocals as well."
~Adam Jones, guitarist from Tool (Artist)
