Heil PR-20

Manufacturer's Description

The PR-20 has been designed for commercial broadcast, recording and live sound reinforcement applications. This is a very rugged microphone, which makes it ideal for professional use. Available in Black, Pink or White and supplied with three interchangeable heads - silver, gold and black.

The PR-20 achieves its exceptional performance by using a special magnet structure and a large aluminum 1 1/8” low mass voice coil assembly. Special attention has been paid to the phasing plug assembly with equally placed ports that sense audio from behind the source entering them out of phase. This produces a very linear cardioid pattern and reduces the proximity effect while achieving the extreme articulation across its smooth 50 Hz - 18 kHz frequency response. This new Heil element is usable in extreme high sound pressure levels and is immune to overload conditions making it perfect for vocals. It produces a beautifully smooth audio response without the inconvenience of phantom or outside DC powering.

This is one great live vocal microphone that has finally replaced the ‘ball mic’ of the 1970s. Times have changed, and that old design of forty years ago is no longer good enough! The PR-20 offers a well balanced response that works in a wide range of applications, both in the studio and in live sound applications. Offering good rear rejection, it also does great service as a drum isolation microphone. It is a tough microphone that will stand up to on-the-road use. Quite amazingly it is also very competitively priced.
