Heil PR-28 Drum Microphone
The Heil PR 28 microphone is made specifically for toms, and snare drums along with other percussion instruments like bongos, conga, timbale, djembes and more. However, the PR 28 is suitable for other uses as well where a wide frequency range and immaculate isolation is desired.
The Heil PR 28 is the premier drum microphone designed for toms, snares, bongo and many other applications. The tight cardioid pattern with a wide frequency response and stellar rear rejection makes the PR 28 suitable for many other applications, as well. A unique dual suspension system between the actual dynamic element and the grill and body reduce unwanted vibrations. The PR 28 has a frequency response of 55Hz - 18kHz (3dB rise @3500Hz). Its rear rejection is -35dB @ 180-degrees off axis. It can handle +148dB SPL.
Heil Sound engineered the PR 28 with a dual suspension dynamic element to eliminate unwanted vibrations and noise, even in the most extreme settings; like when placed above or beneath drums with close proximity monitors, bass cabinets and other sound sources. In fact, the PR 28 dutifully isolates the target drum from neighboring drums just inches away, with precision and ease.
The PR 28 has the ability to withstand very high SPLs, meaning it can bring out the best in even the hardest hitting drummers without overload, or bleed-through. When coupled with the optional (patent-pending) HH-1 Mount, it will easily mount and remain exactly where you need it on the drum.
The PR 28 can be purchased separately, or in the HDK drum kit series, (HDK-5, HDK-7 and HDK-8), and is available with a variety of microphone mounting options.
With the PR 28 you get a world class drum microphone with built-in mic stand clip in a foam-fitted box.

Excellent product and fast shipping!
I am a huge Heil fan and the PR28 has not disappointed me. I bought a pair of them for recording floor and rack toms, and they are amazing. So happy with build quality as well. Excellent microphones.
This thing sounds fantastic on my toms.
