The Heil Sound PR30 is a uniquely designed dynamic microphone, in what looks like the casing of a condenser microphone.<span> </span>I’m not 100% sure exactly what the technology is inside of the mic, but it is some sort of a modified version of a dynamic mic as far as I know.<span> </span>The mic does have a standard cardioid pick up pattern, but doesn’t have any features in terms of a pad or a high pass filter or anything like that.<span> </span>I’ve only got experience with the PR30 in the recording studio, but the microphone is designed for both use in the studio as well as for broadcast and voice over applications.
From what I assume is because of the unique design, the Heil Sound PR30 does sound a bit differently than a standard dynamic mic, as it has a cleaner sound quality than what I would expect from a traditional dynamic microphone.<span> </span>I’ve only used the mic for recording vocals, which from what I have been told is the best application for the mic.<span> </span>While I don’t have anything to compare it to, I definitely got a clean and accurate sound from the PR30 when I used it.<span> </span>I would imagine that the mic does have a bit of versatility, as to me a clean sounding mic is in general a clean sounding microphone.<span> </span>The price of the Heil Sound PR30 is certainly the main attraction here, as it is most likely in the price range for anyone looking for a microphone.<span> </span>I’d encourage those interested in the Heil Sound PR30 to try it out before hand to see if it is for you, but it is certainly a microphone worth checking out if you’re in the market for a very good sounding dynamic microphone that isn’t exactly in a traditional form…

large diaphragm dynamic microphone. Á The membrane is suspended inside the body of the microphone, to avoid vibrations. In addition there is a hum compensating coil to avoid interference due to eg neon or PC.
I used on the guitar amp or drum overhead, but it can have many other applications of the brass I think.
j have 2 now for about nine months more than a hundred concerts. But first tried before buying. I use almost exclusively for guitar amps live. In different styles of music Rock, punk, hardcore, metal but softer Pop ... I ve also sm57, e906, md409, md 441, md 421, blue ball etc. ... I ve already tried overhead battery for Live jazz band and a group of experimental pop Underhead. Since d love to have two more. Tried once on a Trombone.
This mic is quite large and heavy, but the clamp that is provided is very good so this side is no problem. No either mounted on a foot or a Z Bar problem. C is well thought out and solid metal body can work on stage without fear of breaking it.
The sound is amazing: I finally found the microphone for guitar amps. down very accurate, up soft enough without being soft, a bit like a ribbon. The sound of the amp is very well reproduced. He collects high levels without distortion. a very good rear rejection, which is useful on noisy scenes. cardio is fairly open allowing easier placement.
for battery overhead / Underhead a great sound. less of a problem with capacitors that small membranes live use. And a very good sound quality.
good set á share price that may seem excessive at first First, there is nothing negative in this micro.
The investment is well worth it.
It will become a classic like the MD441.
Anyway, I am very very happy with this microphone.

Micro dynamic trsrput taken for guitar and vocals. He looks strong and endure low rev high sound pressures. Note the large diaphragm trs!
<div> I use it mainly on guitar but I made Do not hesitate to use it on the song also. See other sources ... </div>
I used 2 weeks and REU (import of the United States). He prcises low trs, but held Submitted (perfect in front of the V30), the spectrum is set by plutt equilibrated EXAGRES not a peak in the high-mids that is perfect for the guitar, there is no cooking like "fizzzzzz" as the SM57 in the treble, sounded more natural and smooth. But it is much more open in the treble that Sennheiser E609. The grain is very well transcribed and mug of good potato unlike a 414 amp or even a Royer too smooth (even if trs Fidler). </div>
<div> In short, fairly close to the 57 in mind but without the default that I blame him. </div>
<div> The thing that surprised me most is that it is quite Tolra with positioning, or the 57 mm prt is sensitive to the PR-30 will make the same thing as an it is in front of dme, whether or not dsax ... Ds against it by the death of HP cne means immediately the loss of sharp one would expect. In short, this last point is important to me that trs prfre not take me too the head with the positioning in mm. </div>
