OVERVIEW

Large dynamic element for a smooth, wide response.

The Heil PR 30B represents completely original 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 Heil PR 30B's dynamic element produces an outstanding upper mid-range that makes the PR 30B an ideal guitar microphone as well as an excellent choice for reproducing the human voice.

Since 1982, Heil Sound has been a leading manufacturer of communications microphones and has a paramount understanding of phasing. When properly applied, this knowledge creates outstanding cardiod 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 30B dynamic microphone 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 Heil PR 30B mic 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 Heil PR 30B's large diameter dynamic element is mounted in a unique sorbothane shock mount atop a non-resonant fixture, decoupling the element from the massive steel body. This body and the internal humbucking coil removes any worry of using the PR 30B near monitor screens or noisy lighting fixtures and controls. The new technology of the Heil PR 30B has redefined the dynamic mic with superior wide frequency response, low presence of noise, flawless design, and elite quality expected by an innovator and leader in the field.

Simply, the best dynamic mics made today!

By Wavespank

from DC/Balt

Comments about Heil Sound PR 30B Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone:

Heil makes great mics. Dynamic mics are a low rung product for most manufacturers anymore. Bob Heil makes mics that capture music faithfully. There isn't a single engineer, guitarist or drummer who hasn't loved the sound of the Heil mics that I own. The only dynamic mics that keep up are my older Sennheiser 409s and other vintage dynamics made when condensers weren't weren't cheap and didn't sound cheap.

    Comments about Heil Sound PR 30B Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone:

    We auditioned these mics on our live church choir which is about 100 people (give or take) per Sunday. Using 3 of these mics (left, center, and right), we also taped 3 Neumann KM184 up against them and were able to A/B the 2 sets of mics with the same gain staging and output. The Heil microphones were an obvious winner against the Neumann's on how big and loud I could get the choir to sound before feedback. I own a pair of the KM184 myself and were expecting them to win for this application, but the Heil mics seemed to have more noise rejection, therefore allowing for more output before feedback. The "size" and "bigness" of these mics also were better for the choir, and the members said they could "feel" a big difference on stage (in favor of the Heil) when I switched back and forth between the 2 different mics. I made some people listen blind, not knowing which mic I had on, and every time the consensus was the Heil. The Neumann are great mics, but for a live choir, I will always recommend these to people now that I have tested them head to head.

      Comments about Heil Sound PR 30B Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone:

      This mic is absolutely wonderful. I would say it's a great replacement for a sm57 but instead it's just a tad different. It has a very natural sound with a wide frequency response that is great for recording many applications. Metal,rock,Indy whatever. Great especially on guitar cabs and snares
