Heil Sound has introduced two new microphone capsules designed as screw-on replacements for many popular wireless handhelds. Think Hurst Shifter for that tired Chevy and you’d be close. The RC 35 uses the PR 35 1.5″ large diaphragm dynamic element that has been used by Jakob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Joan Baez and others while the RC 22 utilizes the PR 22 circuitry.
Bob Heil explains, “I have had many singers ask about wireless versions of the PR 35 and PR 22. They have found the sound of these two mic to be the “fit” for their voices, yet still have a need to roam the stage. Given the chaotic state of the wireless mic industry, I prefer to focus on the front end of the microphone and build great sounding products whether it is a wired Heil mic or a replacement capsule on a wireless.”
Both the Heil Sound RC-35 and the RC-22 will be available through authorized Heil Sound dealers.
