We meet Bob Heil, CEO/Founder of Heil Sound for a chat at the Music Production Show 2013.
Bob Heil talks about his career, the history of Heil Microphones and his contribution to music.
Bob Heil tells us why he only makes dynamic mics, how the stage is his lab, and why it's OK to have fun with design.
Bob shares the history of one of the most iconic pieces of kit – the Heil Talk Box - originally developed as a Christmas present for Peter Frampton.
Bob gives us a dramatic demonstration of what happens when two mics are out of phase.
