The HEIL PR 20 microphone is a new breed of dynamic microphone with many benefits over other microphones in its price range. The PR 20 will do a superior job at exactly capturing the sound from vocals, guitar, snare drums, cymbals, piano and more. Sound professionals, broadcasters, and musicians of all genres rely on the PR 20 microphone because it faithfully upholds the sound it takes in, and is built to last.
The PR 20 has a large diaphragm providing a wide frequency range, with excellent upper mids. The PR 20 does a great job of rejecting side & rear noise (minimizing feedback), and it is tough enough to withstand real-world usage. These attributes make the entire PR & RC series not only great rock music microphones, but they are also great for country, metal, jazz, funk, blues, rap, and opera, for that matter. All Heil microphones are hand assembled and quality tested in the USA at Heil’s headquarters in Fairview Heights, IL.
With the PR 20, you get three interchangeable acoustically identical mesh screens (Silver, Black and Gold), along with additional black acoustical foam wind screen, padded carrying case, and a mic stand clip.
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.

Kathy Coppola from Circle Takes the Square (Artist) - "I'm using the Heil PR 20 for live vocals. Its the ideal mic for my voice, and our music. Our stage volume is usually pretty loud, and these mics give us a lot of gain without feeding back."
