An affordable solution for professional-quality drum miking.
The Heil HDK-5 Drum Microphone Kit features 4 Handi Mic Pro Plus mics for miking up your drum set, a special PR 48 mic just for the kick drum, as well as two HH-1 mounts for tom-mounting, 4 HM mic clips for attaching to a mic stand, and a convenient black carrying case to protect them between use.
The Heil HDK drum mic set series is a culmination of over 2 years spent on the road with leading drummers. They gave Heil their ideas, dreams, and needs which Heil then turned into reality. Every component of a drum kit needs special attention when it comes to reproducing the sound accurately. There are many drum microphones out there, but the artists that helped design the Heil drum microphones wanted more accuracy, not just level. Each one of them were tired of little plastic toys that did not reproduce well. They all agreed, after hearing and using the technologies of the Heil drum microphones, that they had never heard this level of quality reproduction.
Heil 3 Handi Mic Pro Plus Microphone
The Heil Handi Mic Pro Plus is a dynamic microphone that incorporates innovative mic technology designed for a wide range of professional applications. This versatile Heil microphone excels at live sound, commercial broadcast, and sophisticated recording venues. The Handi Mic's wide frequency range outperforms tired, 30+ year old industry technology and can withstand huge amounts of SPL. The end result is a microphone that can answer the call to any application. The Handi Mic Pro Plus is ideal for use with tom drums where smaller microphones are needed, as well as inside Leslie speakers. The Handi Mic is perfect as an interview microphone because of its small size, low profile, and great sound.
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 Handi Mic Pro Plus 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 Handi Mic Pro Plus Microphone the strongest magnet structure available.
Heil technicians paid special attention to the microphone's phasing plug assembly. The Handi Mic's equally placed ports accept sound from behind out of phase. Thus, the Handi Mic Pro Plus produces a very linear cardioid pattern and reduces proximity effect while achieving perfect articulation. The Heil element in this microphone is usable at extreme high sound pressure levels and is immune to overload conditions. That makes the Heil Handi Mic Pro Plus a dynamic microphone that is perfect for vocal and live sound applications.
Heil PR 48 mic
The Heil PR 48 kick drum microphone starts with Heil's 1.5" large diaphragm dynamic element sealed in a vulcanized shock mount and fed with a specially designed low-pass filter that creates a 10dB rise from 60Hz to 100Hz - right where the kick drum resonates. It stays out to 7.5 kHz and drops off drastically to eliminate any unwanted internal sounds. The total frequency response is 30Hz - 8.5kHz (4dB rise @ 4500Hz). Its rear rejection is -40dB @ 180 off-axis. It can handle +148dB SPL.
The PR 48 metal housing was designed with a slanted entrance to the 3-pin XLR so the cable assembly is easier to connect. The microphone provides a 600 ohm balanced output.
HH-1 mounting kits
The HH-1 is a unique mounting kit that is fully adjustable so you can mount a Heil PR 28 on the rim of the mounting hoops of the tom drum.

Comments about Heil Sound HDK-5 Drum Microphone Kit:
I was looking for a set of microphones for my drum set, so I could produce decent, live, drum takes to send to my band mates in other towns as we go through pre-production of our next album. That way we can save time and blah blah blah. Anyway, I found these mics on sale and jumped on it. Un-boxing was really impressive. The case is made out of leather and everything is packed nicely in high density foam: you can tell it's a quality product. I got them out and began mic'ing up my kit. This is where I discovered the only con about is product. The tom mounts did not fit nicely on my rims. I have a Mapex Voyager 5 piece and I suppose the flanges on the rims are too short or something for the mounts to fit securely on them. So, I used other mounts instead. Not a big deal to me. I record a couple minutes of my drumming and the results are joyful. Listening back, I can hear plenty of the nuances of my kit; like the overtones of my snare, or just how untreated the room I'm recording in is. Its great! And The kick microphone, the PR48, is magnificent. It easily captures the low end and the punch without a bunch of mud. All in all, I'm impressed by this set of microphones and would definitely buy again, even at full price.
