FOH mixer Jason Raboin uses a variety of Heil microphones on Modest Mouse every night.New York (December 3, 2007)--Modest Mouse has been touring most of the year, and along the way, FOH mixer Jason Raboin and monitor engineer Myles Kennedy have been using a gear package from Thunder Audio (Taylor, MI) that includes a Digidesign Profile console, a combination of Meyer MJF-212s and Nexo Alphas, and a Midas XL250 monitor board. Also along at every stop are Heil microphones, including PR 30s PR 40s and PR 35s.
Raboin said, "I put the small Heil mics on the toms of one kit, and love them. They have a softness to them that is really pleasing to the ear. Those mounts are fantastic and with a few turns of the screwdriver, they stay in place quite nicely. Of course, the other drummer asked why he doesn't get the cool new mics, so I found myself adding more Heil mics to the drums! I also use the Heil PR 30s on the guitar rigs."
