Heil Sound PR 48 overview

  • 1Description

The PR 48 from Heil Sound is a professional-quality dynamic kick drum microphone that provides highly accurate sound reproduction. Designed for a life of professional use, the mic has a large 1.5" dynamic diaphragm sealed in a vulcanized shock mount to minimize handling noise. The capsule has a cardioid pickup pattern to reject off-axis noise. A specially designed low-pass filter provides a 10dB boost in the 60-100Hz range, which is where the kick drum has the most resonance. The mic has a metal housing with a slanted XLR entrance for easy cable connection.

    Heil Sound PR 48 reviews

    PR 48 Dynamic Cardioid Kick Drum Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good This is my first Bass drum microphone and found it best to place it 3 inches from outside the bass drum front vent hole. It is the most powerful position for a lot of bass. I Can not compare THE PR 48 to any other bass drum microphones out there but love the sound of the PR 48 along with 2 Blue Bluebirds as overheads, nice smooth sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kick drum mic! I have used many kick drum mics over the years, not everything out there but quite a few. The Heil PR48 is in my opinion the best. It has a great natural, full, punchy sound, and it sounds great in many positions. My only tiny complaint is, I wish they had put a few more degrees of angle between stand mount and cable connection. B&H has the best price too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat screen microphone These PR 48 Dynamic kick drum microphones are nice because it has a flat front which I believe give a true sound and cover more area of the drum head than other kick drum microphones.
