The looks of a 1950s era microphone but with a modern, large diaphragm element.
Heil Sound has reintroduced The Heritage, a stylish dynamic microphone with a vintage look that is equally at home in live sound, recording, and broadcast applications. The exceptional performance is achieved by the use of a special magnet structure with a large 1 1/4" aluminum low mass voice coil assembly similar to the Heil PR 20. The frequency response is 50 Hz - 18 kHz with a mid range boost at 4 kHz, which results in incredible brilliance and presence. Special attention has been paid to the phasing plug assembly with equally placed ports that sense audio from the back of the microphone entering those sounds out of phase. The result is a tight cardioid pattern with superior rear rejection. The Heritage has a slide switch that turns the audio on and off and has a small lock screw that can lock it in position.
The Heritage comes in two finishes; chrome with blue, and black matte with blue. The chrome finish is a special "show chrome" where the steel body is copper plated and then double chrome plated producing a deep chrome finish. A molded internal foam windscreen inside the grill covers the Heil dynamic microphone element mounted in a specially tooled rubber shock mount.
Standard 5/8" - 27 microphone stand threads allow The Heritage to be mounted on booms or floor stands.
Heil Sound, Ltd. warrants all microphones to the original purchaser for a period of three years (parts) and ninety days (labor) from the date of purchase.
