By PSW Staff • May 5, 2009 The new PR 20 UT. "It's a PR 20 without the bling." - Bob Heil Heil Sound has introduced the PR 20 UT (Utility) dynamic microphone, a low cost version of the successful PR 20 and intended for live sound, commercial broadcast, and recording applications. Specifications and performance characteristics are identical to the PR 20: wide frequency range, the ability to handle +140 dB SPL, -35 dB of rear rejection and natural articulation. The difference is a stripped down packaging scheme putting the UT in the price range of any musician, recordist or sound company. The PR 20 UT microphone is perfect for live vocal and instrument applications as well as a superb microphone for serious recording studios or broadcast use. Retail price is $115. (USD) Heil Sound President and Founder Bob Heil explains, “The PR 20 is shipped standard with an abundance of accessories including gold, silver and black screw-on grill screens that are interchangeable, and a thick padded carrying case. “While many customers appreciate and use these items, there is a large group of musicians, sound companies and contractors who need a simple ‘one-take’ PR 20. By streamlining the packaging, we can dramatically lower the price without one single alteration to the microphone itself. It is a PR 20 without the bling.” Heil Sound Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
