Gorgeous craftsmanship, high quality components and a beautiful champagne luster finish with the most articulate, natural sound from a dynamic, the PR 40 will soon become the sound industry standard.
In many blind A/B tests in a Burbank rehearsal hall, the Heil lab, and several major studios around the U.S., this revolutionary Heil dynamic microphone exhibits amazingly clear, clean, natural sound that equals and surpasses many of the cheap condenser models that have recently flooded the U.S. market. The Heil PR40 uses a very unique copper wound voice coil with a neodymium magnet structure which creates a magnetic field ten times stronger than the traditional magnets of other microphones. Coupling to a low mass quilted aluminum diaphragm exhibits the tremendous low frequency response and low distortion throughout it's wide frequency range.
The dynamic Heil PR40 looks like, feels like and acts like a condenser in every respect. No more phantom power. No more background noise and you now have the absolute quietest microphone - ever. It truly outperforms the old industry standards costing 5 to 6 times more.
The PR40 will be shipped with the SM 3 5/8" -27 mount assembly. An optional shock mount will be available later.
