Heil PR-30B Drum Overhead Microphone

Heil PR-30B Drum Overhead Microphone, a black version of the PR-30, a mic developing quite a reputation as an overhead drum mic!

With the Heil PR-30B Drum Overhead Mic, Bob Heil and his team took the microphone that has been gaining a reputation for being an excellent overhead microphone, the PR-30 (which sounds pretty incredible on just about everything), and gave it a facelift for use over the drum kit. The PR-30B is a black version of the PR-30 that virtually disappears when used on stage!

The Heil PR 30 represents completely new dynamic microphone technology designed for a wide range of professional applications such as sophisticated recording, live sound, and commercial broadcast. It is an end-fire microphone, not side-address. Its smooth, wide frequency range sounds like a ribbon but can withstand large amounts of SPL. Outperforming the tired, 30 year old technology of the industry, the large diameter of the PR 30's dynamic element produces an outstanding upper mid range that makes the PR 30 the absolute best guitar microphone in the industry today, while still an excellent choice for reproducing the human voice.

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 PR 30 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 PR 30 the strongest magnet structure available. These features allow the microphone to achieve magnificent dynamic range. A unique screen system using two different diameter mesh screens and an internal breath blast filter allow the user to talk closely to the microphone with little worry of pops or excessive sibilance. The large diameter dynamic element is mounted in a unique Sorbothane shock mount atop a non-resonant fixture, decoupling the element from the massive steel body. This body and the internal hum bucking coil removes any worry of using the PR 30 near monitor screens or noisy lighting fixtures and controls. The new technology of the Heil PR 30 has redefined the dynamic microphone with superior wide frequency response, the lowest presence of noise in the industry, flawless design, and elite quality expected by an innovator and leader in the field. Your ribbon microphones will now be jealous.

We here at Front End Audio know Heil Microphones like nobody else and are happy to bring their new microphones to you!

Snare or guitar cab! February 1, 2016
Reviewer: Christopher Pou from Bogart, GA United States  
My only experience on this one so far is being able to use it on snare top/bottom and guitar cabs.  On these sources, it is a great addition to make these elements fit exactly where you want them in the mix!

Great mic, great salesman. January 18, 2013
Reviewer: Greg Tomao from Long Beach, NY United States  
Ryan has been taking great care of me since the very beginning. I owe a huge thank to Damian for introducing us to one another.

The microphone was reviewed thoroughly by my rep, priced wonderfully, sounds fantastic, and came promptly. What else can you ask for?
