Product Highlights
  • Large Dynamic Element
  • Steel Housing
  • Internal Sorbothane Shock Mount
  • Cardioid Pickup Pattern
  • Ideal for Guitar Amps
  • Assembled in the USA

The PR 30 from Heil Sound is a high-performance dynamic microphone ideal for use in broadcast studios. The large dynamic element produces a smooth response with an articulate and natural midrange, offering a sound very similar to a ribbon microphone. The size of the diaphragm, combined with a low mass and an efficient NdFeB magnet structure, allow the microphone to achieve a wide dynamic range and capture high SPLs, making it a great guitar amp mic.

The mic's cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis noise, focusing on the sounds in front of it. The steel body and internal hum bucking coil shield the mic, making it safe for use near video monitors and noisy lighting fixtures. An internal Sorbothane shock mount decouples the mic's dynamic element from the body to reduce the effects of handling noise.

            Comments about Heil Sound PR 30 Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone (Champagne):

            I play and record with two guitar setups, one being a 1967 Fender Princeton amp. I read recently that using two mic's, one condenser and one dynamic is a great way to capture different nuannces of a classic amp like the Princeton. Last year I purchased a Sennheiser MK4 from B&H and in adding the PR30 I am able to capture the sound I want at any volume I play. Awesome mic.

                Comments about Heil Sound PR 30 Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone (Champagne):

                First off, it's a Heil, so I had high expectations even before it arrived.

                I bought this to round out my collection of broadcast microphones. I already own Heil's PR40, and it flatters my beefy voice - however, when we have guests, the '40 sometimes doesn't do so hot. Their voices end up sounding a bit bigger than reality, and in cases where their voice is particularly high-toned, muddy.

                The '30 fixes that problem. It inherits a lot from the '40, like great rear-rejection, and clean, vibrant reproduction of the human voice (something you don't often get with a dynamic). It then adds a bit more detail in the high-midrange, making it perfect for voices that are less than beefy to the naked ear.
