Heil Sound’s PR 35 dynamic microphone. Fairview Heights, IL (January 15, 2008)–Heil Sound has introduced its PR 35. Designed with the vocalist in mind, the PR 35 is designed intending to capture a natural, articulate sound over a wide frequency range. The PR 35 features a 1.5-inch-diameter dynamic element that is mounted on an internal Sorbothane shockmount.
New Heil Sound technology features a dual-wound voice coil with a magnet structure of neodymium, iron and boron, which reportedly creates a magnetic field 10 times stronger than the traditional magnets of other microphones. Company founder, Bob Heil, comments, “I had requests from several well-known FOH mixers for a version of the PR 30 that a singer could use in a traditional handheld manner. We built up several, and they instantly found use, notably with Joan Baez. She could have any microphone that she wants but loved the sound of the PR 35.”
The PR 35 has a frequency response extending from 40 to 18,000 Hz and output level of -52.9 dB @ 1,000 Hz. A 2-position roll-off switch is provided to help control unwanted low end. Its polar pattern is cardioid, and the microphone comes in a black-steel frame and grille. All units are shipped with a Heil SM-5 mounting assembly and a hard-shell, attaché-style carrying case.
