Heil Sound has introduced the new PR 37 microphone for live and studio vocals, designed to produce natural, articulate sound over a wide frequency range.
The PR 37 incorporates a 1.5-inch diameter dynamic element that is mounted in a rugged housing intended to reduce handling noise. Stated frequency response is 50 Hz to 18 kHz and output level is -51 dB at 1000 Hz.
The PR 37 joins the lineup of vocal microphones from Heil Sound that includes the PR 22 and PR 35. The company states that it worked with several front of house engineers with the initial design as well as subsequent field testing.
John Hopkins, FOH for the bands Sleep, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, states, “The PR 37 immediately moved to the top of the list for my go-to vocal mic. It’s a super transparent mic and the rejection of stage noise is incredible.”
Adam Pike, working with Red Fang, adds, “The Heil PR 37 is a beast! Very rich and smooth low-mids along with the pristine high-mids that Heil is known for. The extremely sturdy casing is also a great added bonus.”
The PR 37 will begin shipping in July. Retail price is $269 U.S.
