OVERVIEW

Capture live sound like never before in the new colorful glow of this professional-grade mic.

The Fin Dynamic Mic captures remarkably natural, clear sound and is designed for live sound, recording, and broadcast applications. The exceptional performance is achieved thanks to a special magnet structure with a large 1-1/18" aluminum low mass voice coil assembly similar to the Heil PR 20. The frequency response is 60 Hz - 18 kHz with that traditional Heil Sound mid range "bouquet" at 4 kHz, presenting incredible brilliance and presence. The Heil Fin exhibits a tight linear cardioid pattern. The chrome finish is a special "showchrome," where the steel body is copper-plated and then double chrome-plated, producing a deep chrome finish. A blue molded internal foam windscreen inside the grill covers the large diameter Heil dynamic microphone element mounted in a specially tooled Sorbothane shockmount.

The fun part of The Fin is the four L.E.D. lamps mounted inside. These can only be illuminated when using The Fin into one of the 3-pin balanced XLR inputs of a professional mixing console that supplies a +48 volt DC phantom voltage down the balanced mic line.

Standard 5/8" 27-thread connection allows The Fin to be mounted on booms or floor stands.

The Fin mic from Heil Sound is terrific for vocals, instrument amplifiers, harmonica, and speech, and puts the fun back into the dynamic microphone.

    Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

    I have a home studio, and this mic is always up and ready to go on its bright chrome stand. I have it on a mixer, and that in turn goes into my digital recorder. When I turn on the mixer, and that beautiful glowing mic lights up before me, I feel energized, and ready to record!

    The sound is so fantastic, I swear it adds depth to my voice, and it reproduces acoustic guitar sound very well. It is a perfect podcast mic that also doubles as a music recording mic, AND as a music performance mic- hey, I guess it triples rather than doubles.

    Love this mic- it is the only one I use now, and I have a number.

      Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

      Purchased for stage vocals use instead of the venue standard Shure SM58. This mic sounds significantly better than a 58, very clear and present sound, great noise deflection and not boomy. It looks amazing on stage, especially when you engage the LED lights by powering it from the board with phantom power. The only down sides are that you screw it on to the stand, therefore you cannot just pull it off and walk around with it nor can you just pop it back on the stand. The second issue ties in with the first in that if you do hold it by hand, it sure is heavy! BUT i will say that the sound quality and looks make up for the convenience of hand holding. If your a singer who tends to pull the mic of the stand, this may not be the one for you.

            Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

            I'm a pro Blues piano player/singer, gig 2-4 times a week & have owned this mic for over two years. It has a beautiful vintage look but more importantly it sounds great.

            I've owned the Shure 55, 58, Beta 58, Sennheiser & other major brands but thie Heil suits my needs perfectly. Other reviewers have said it has brighter highs & that is true, but you can adjust that at the sound board. Others complain of feedback but I haven't encountered that problem in 200+ gigs. Comes in a beautiful case but I don't use it. I keep it on my heavy duty chrome mic stand & use a heavily padded golf club cover to protect it. One warning is the bolt holding the mic position comes loose easily. A quarter or a standard screwdiver won't tighten it so you'll need something with a longer & thicker blade.

            The blue LED lights really show off the mic & I've had many compliments but the sound is what counts & this Heil has it.

              Have been using a Shure 55sh for the longest time decided to upgrade to this mic becouse of the LED. Good for use on any stage and a real eye catcher. The sound is a bit brighter than the Shure but keeps the same look of the old style mics with a modern twist. Went with the white.

              Sounds great but quick to feedback on some stages

              By William Miller

              from East coast, USA

              See all my reviews

              Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

              Like I said, this mic does sound great, and it is a visual stunner. Unfortunately, it's usefulness is limited (I would give it 3 stars for "usefulness" if there was that category).

              Though I have been tempted to sell it for this reason, I still can't seem to part with it so I guess I'll just learn to live with it's limitations.

              I give this info. simply as a "heads up" to others considering this mic. Worth the money? Yes. Do I use it as much as I'd like too? No. Would I buy it again? Doubtful.
              Made in USA... great looks end extended frequency response compared to most dynamic microphones. Very solid.
              I bought this mic about 2 years ago to use mostly live with a retro, Chicago style blues and swing band. It does indeed look awesome onstage and sounds wonderful too.

              My only (yet somewhat big) beef is that this mic does tend to feedback quite easily, much more so than an SM58. I own several nice mics, including large diaphragm condensers (AKG 414 for the home studio etc.) and wanted something better for the stage than the standard SM58. This seemed like the ticket... a large diaphragm dynamic! ... and the the looks were so outstanding.

              This mic will indeed blow away an SM58, but once you roll off the highs to keep the feedback in check, or simply turn the mic down and try to eat it, in a live situation, you lose the advantage (and I can sing quite loud), I also like to be soft and intimate on the ballads as well, I can achieve this, (sounds great) but too often requires "riding" the mic volume in live situations. That means an aware sound guy, or simply not being able to get a good hot signal for vocal monitors.

              I still use this on sax in my live set-up and it works great for that as well, (the sax is louder so no problems as the mic is not as hot).

              I can get a much hotter signal on an SM58, so I seem to be going back to that for vocals, as I don't have the time in most situations, to hassle with the sound guy. (It's important to just be able to get up and deliver, especially if you are sharing a stage with another band when quick set-up is a must.)

              I am considering buying an automated "feedback destroyer/notch filter" simply so I can use this mic on vocals again.
              Worth the price, just beware of this mic's quirks.

              The Fin Is More Than Fine

              By Artie Breyfogle

              from Las Vegas, NV

              Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

              A good buy? Priced right? Does the job? THE FIN wins on all accounts...

              It's a great lookin' mic with the lights and retro "Cadallic" fin look...

              Make the move and add it to your mic collection today...
              Heil's unique mic, THE FIN, is more than the standard mic...Why? Four LED's are embedded in it's housing and they blaze brightly whenever it is connected to a phantom power source...

              If you are in the market for a top; sonic quality mic, pass on THE FIN...Instead of 20-20 response levels, the mic comes in around 18,000 khz on the high side of the frequency response chart...

              Good for most efforts, but not near top of the line...

              Heil gear comes from an excellent American company and the mic is MADE right here in the good old USA...Quality is top shelf with all Heil products...

              I own a Heil PR 40 mic and that does the job of a two grand mic...A stunner for three bills plus...

              THE FIN serves up one thing the PR 40 can never deliver...STYLE...

              The chrome retro finned look and the choice of red, white or blue LED lights make THE FIN a visual winner...I use it on my mobile DJ jobs and look the part for "Oldies Night" gigs...

              You want a mic that is made RIGHT from the start along with terrific looks, head to your keyboard and order up Heil's mic ready for the Crusin' set, THE FIN...
              THE FIN is a finished visual work of art...

              Not often does a mic look like it should be on display in an art gallery...

              THE FIN's polished retro look reeks quality from the outside to deep inside the mic...

              Heil builds them right...Top drawer design and finished work here...
              For what THE FIN delivers, it is a good value...

              If you are in the market for visual appeal, THE FIN is the pinnacle of the microphone market...

              Fin Dynamic Mike

              By gary marsicano

              from Florida

              Comments about Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone White:

              It is a good mike, solid, heavy and vintage as all get out.. Buy this mike, and IF it breaks...just send it back
              It's got a lot of depth and cuts through much better than the SM58. More decibels with a cool look.
              The mike stopped working 6 weeks after buying it. I had to go thru the hassle of boxing it back up and shipping it to Musicians Friend. Not their fault, just a bad mike
              The sound is uncomparable, good lows ang highs. This is a good mike if it doesn';t break on you
