Heil Drum Toms 2 Microphone Package
The Heil Drum Toms 2 Microphone Package is a Front End Audio exclusive that we put together to give you enough mics to take care of a two-tom drumset.
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 Heil 'cut it in half'. That is exactly what they 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.
This incredible little bombshell is rightfully named, the HEIL PR 31 BW in honor and thanks to Bob Workman.

Excuse the silly pun, but these are good "booms" for the buck....I have done a lot of research on drum mics, and all the positive reports on various forums, from drum and musician forums to sound and recording forums always pointed to Heil products. In addition, I have the Heil PR 30 and PR 20, overhead and snare. I plan on getting another PR 30 for OH, and/or possibly use as a kick mic.
Heil Mics are superb, do not waste time or money on anything else. Research as I did, and it would be hard to find better for same cost.
Bought two with the HH-1 mounts. I went from using a pair of SDCs for picking up my cymbals in a live House Of Worship setting to using a pair of these, Tom-mounted, as cymbal UNDER-MICS.
The rejection of these mics, clarity, and lack of slop from your typical condensers picking up the whole kit and other stage sound is a game-changer! Pick these up now!!
Excellent frequency response, sensitivity, and feedback rejection are outstanding. Accordion sounds real Beefy. Detachable XLR cable. No phantom power required. I think good for recording.
Good quality. Made in USA, a big plus for me. Nice to see quality products from American Mfgrs.
The Heil Microphones would require additional Shock Mounting if fastened to the Accordion. Though it is a small microphone, it still is pushing the boundaries of comfort for the Accordion mount.
