Heil PR 31 BW Large Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone

The Heil PR 31 BW was a suggestion of Bob Workman FOH Engineer for Charlie Daniels who uses Heil microphones exclusively. Bob uses the Heil PR 30 for just about every application but it was too large physically to fit in and around the drum kit so Bob suggested we 'cut it in half'.

That is exactly what Heil did and the PR 31 BW was born - a 4" PR 30 that exhibits all specs of the PR 30. Same great frequency response, same wonderful front pattern and the incredible -40 dB of rear and side rejection which is perfect for using the PR 31BW as an UNDERHEAD microphone for cymbals. .

Placing a microphone under the cymbal has never been successful because the microphone hears everything around it. With the -40 dB of rear and side rejection of the PR 31 BW, the microphone does not hear anything but what it is point towards - in this case, the cymbal and nothing from the toms or other sounds close by.

Using a right angle connector and our HH-1 rim mount, the PR 31BW is the perfect low profile answer for toms. The PR 31BW also works great in front of a guitar cabinet, the best brass horn and saxophone mic, inside a Leslie speaker and is perfect for acoustic pianos. It is your best 'go-to' microphone for just about everything, including vocals.

This incredible little bombshell is rightfully named, the HEIL PR 31 BW in honor and thanks to Bob Workman

What We Think

"In the Heil PR 31 BW, Heil finally found a way to make the PR 30 even better! After having used it for several years and n my opinion, the PR 30 is perhaps the most versatile and best sounding dynamic microphone for the widest number of sources. Personally, I love the sound of these microphones on toms. They are very natural and exhibit some of the best rejection of cymbals that I've heard. There is little need for equalization correction and the sound is big and smooth with the right amount of definition. But the PR 31 BW makes it so much easier to place the tom mic in a tight space. And with a right-angle mic cable, you're cutting down your rear footprint to roughly 4 inches down from almost a foot. This same compact design benefits placement on guitar amps on small and crowded stages where an over enthusiastic or flamboyant guitarist or singer would be constantly running into and knocking over a longer mic. I flat out love these little jammers."

Special Note

If you plan on using the Heil PR 31 BW with the Heil HH-1 Drum Mount, you will need the "Euro-Style Mic-Mount Adapter", as the HH-1's threads are the smaller "Euro-Style" and it was designed to be used with the PR 28 microphone, which includes an adapter for mating with the HH-1. Anyway... this is why Front End Audio includes these adapters FREE with your purchase of either the HH-1 or the PR 31 BW.

Toms-Bass-Guitars February 1, 2016
Reviewer: Chris Lyon from Marietta, GA United States  
Haven't found anything yet that these mics don't sound good on - but only had them a week and half LOL.  Quickly becoming a "go to" mic.

Great general-purpose mics August 26, 2013
Reviewer: Spockter from NSW Australia  
We bought a couple of these mics and have used them for multiple applications: choir, drums, podium speaking. They have worked very well and impressed our musicians,

good service, nice product selection, great price March 5, 2013
Reviewer: Brent Vinson from Cincinnati, OH United States  
I ordered Bob Heil's latest creation the PR 31 BW... a more compact version of their great PR 30 large diameter dynamic mic. Front End had a great price and their shipping was fast and effective. They are wonderful folks to deal with. I'll be calling them in the future for my pro audio needs.

great sound, super compact and made in the USA! February 21, 2013
Reviewer: Brent Vinson from Cincinnati, OH United States  
I got a new thing for these Heil Mics. First noticed them on the Lexington KY based "Woodsongs" show. They got a terrific sound from various stringed instruments in a live performance setting. They use PR30 mics and the PR 31 BW has the same great sound in a short compact lightweight package. Works well with my PR 40 which is an excellent vocal mic for voices like mine. Well done Heil Sound; great sound, value and made in the USA!
