    is someone still using the Heil pr 40 to amplifying the bass live?
    one or two years ago it seems to me that the pr 40 was a best selling mic.
    any impressions now? do you suggest it yet?
    I play all gut with a good acoustic volume, so I think a dynamic would be a good option for me.
    yes, I don't have the money for a Schoeps...
  2. It's a great mic, but is heavy and challenging to mount. The DPA is a much more elegant solution.

    +1 JR's used both of these mic's. It's really to bad that Bob Heil didn't put the stubby version of the PR40 into production. I ask him about it, and he said that their marketing research just didn't support bringing it into production. Since DPA brought the 4099 into the market about a year later and a half later, I guess he did his homework.
