The new PR37 vocal microhphone from Heil Sound, designed to produce a natural, articulate sound over a wide frequency range, is now shipping.
Previewed earlier this year at the NAMM 2020 show in Anaheim, the PR 37 is stated to provide an upper mid-range response that “cuts through” both live and studio mixes. It utilizes a 1.5-inch-diameter dynamic element mounted in a rugged housing designed to reduce handling noise. Stated frequency response 50 to 18,000 Hz and output level is -51 dB at 1000 Hz.
The PR 37 joins a lineup of vocal microphones from Heil Sound that includes the PR 22 and PR 35. The company worked with several front of house engineers, both with the initial design and subsequent field testing, in the development of the PR 37.
John Hopkins, FOH engineer 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 the PR 37 and 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.”
Retail price is $269 USD.
