Dynamic Cardioid Large-Diaphragm Studio Microphone (Champagne)

The Heil PR 40 microphone boasts the widest frequency range of any dynamic mic in the Heil PR series. The PR 40 incorporates Heil's sage-like understanding of phasing plug placement, along with the use of a very large (1"), low mass diaphragm, and custom magnet metals housed in a specially designed microphone body.

The PR 40 diaphragm is shock mounted such that it is completely de-coupled from the anodized Champagne matte-finished steel body. In addition to dual mesh screens, each made with different diameter screen apertures, there is an internal breath blast filter on the diaphragm element itself, providing superb response for the human voice across the entire vocal range, without "popping" noises. In fact, the PR 40 will provide flawless, smooth, flat response from 28 Hz all the way up to the 18k Hz, making this a great microphone for everything from vocals, to bass drums and tom drums, to guitar and bass cabinet mic'ing and more.

In short, the PR 40 is known by professionals as the "thoroughbred work-horse" of professional sound recording and reinforcement.

The PR 40 is available in champagne, gold plate, or chrome plate. With all PR 40 models you get an adjustable cast metal microphone holder in a padded Leatherette bag with molded foam insert.

Heil Sound, Ltd. warrants all microphones to the original purchaser for a period of three years (parts) and ninety days (labor) from the date of purchase.

  • Professional Sound
  • The large dynamic element has a smooth frequency response with a natural and articulate midrange, making this an ideal mic for voice over applications
  • Wide Dynamic Range
  • The large size and low mass of the mic element, combined with a powerful NdFeB magnet structure, give the mic the ability to capture high SPLs while providing a wide dynamic range
  • Cardioid Pickup Pattern
  • The mic has 4 rear ports designed to reject off-axis noise, providing it with a smooth, tight cardioid pickup pattern
  • Specialized Screen System
  • The mic's screen system uses 2 different mesh screens and an internal filter to keep sibilance and plosives to a minimum
  • Internal Shock Mount
  • The internal Sorbothane mount decouples the mic element from the body, reducing the effects of handling noise
