The Heil HDK-8 drum mic kit is the ultimate drum microphone collection. Start with the legendary PR 48 kick drum mic, giving you the best foundation for kick sound (with excellent side & rear noise rejection and the ability to withstand 148 dB SPL). This microphone is alive at 30 Hz, to 8.5K with a 10 dB boost where it is needed, making it the most real sounding kick ever heard. You will particularly appreciate the kick beater sound.
There is so much flexibility built in to this kit, which also includes two PR 22 mics (great for micing a snare from above and below), along with three PR 28’s to use on toms, and more, with two PR 30B’s (perfect for overhead cymbals), complementing the venerable PR 38 kick drum mic. All microphones in the HDK-8 are dynamic element mics, with tight cardioid patterns to produce quality, linear, sound.
More importantly, these professional microphones bring out the best in the drum, as opposed to “manufacturing sound”. It’s almost like Heil microphones know exactly what to do with sound coming from any direction. That is why the microphones in the HDK-8 are the preferred microphones of some of the most successful artists and engineers in the world. The eight microphones in the HDK-8 kit come with three HH-1 patent-pending mic clips and two HM Standard mic clips in a rugged hard-shell carrying case. Bring out the best in rock, jazz, blues, funk,
or whatever, with the microphones included in the HDK-8.
