The Heil PR 31 BW was a suggestion by Bob Workman FOH Engineer for Charlie Daniels using Heil microphones exclusively. Bob uses the Heil PR 30 for almost every application, but was too big physically to fit in and around the battery so Bob suggested we ' cut in half '. This is exactly what did Heil and the PR 31 BW is born-a 4 "PR 30 presenting all the specifications of PR 30. Frequency response great, same wonderful pattern front and rear and the incredible -40 dB rejection side that is perfect for use of PR 31BW as a microphone UNDER the HEAD.
By placing a microphone under the dish has never succeeded because the microphone can hear everything around it. With the -40 dB rejection back and sides of the PR 31 BW, the microphone does not hear anything, but what's the point to-in this case, the plate and anything by tom or other sounds by.
Using a right-angle connector and our HH-1 rim Assembly, PR 31BW is the perfect low-profile response to tom. The PR 31BW also works great in front of a closet guitar, the best brass Horn and saxophone in a Leslie speaker and microphone is perfect for acoustic pianos. It is your best ' go-to ' microphone for almost everything, including the vocals.
