I ordered a Heil PR40 and Heil shock-mount kit yesterday. As many of you already know, over the past few months I have been setting up a recording studio for podcasting purposes.
All of the pieces that I have acquired have been first-class and the mic was the only piece that I was compromising on. My son owned a Shure SM-58 mic and lent it to me, it’s a good mic, sounded great, but deep down I wanted the Heil.
Will the Heil PR40 sound better? From all I’ve read it should be very noticeable in it’s tone and clarity. All I can say is it better sound great as it’s not an inexpensive item.
Should arrive in the next few days, keep you posted.
