The new Heil Sound drum mic kits

Heil Sound has premiered three drum microphone kits, the HDK-8 Primo, the HDK-7 and the HDK-5.

“Think of it as a greatest hits boxed set with previously unreleased bonus tracks. Only instead of CD’s you get top of the line drum mics,” states Founder/President Bob Heil, describing his company’s irst foray into package drum mic kits.

The HDK-8 Primo kit consists of two PR 22s, a flagship mic in the Heil Sound product line that is already in use by many world-class drummers for snare and high hat.

Three PR 28s for toms, two PR 38s for overheads and one PR 48 for kick round out the package.

All three models are brand new and have features, both sonically and physically, that make them ideal for micing drums.

In addition, the kit includes a new tom mount called the HH-1, which was developed with input from Hunter Herman, jazz drummer, producer and studio owner who also engages in metalworking as a hobby. His input has been invaluable, hence the model designator HH-1 (Hunter Herman-1).
