Heil PR 40 - Game Changer...

Wowa. One of the best purchase I've made for recording guitar. I'd been using a standard issue sm57 on some small tube & solid state amps. Been happy enough.

Today I put the Heil Pr 40 in front of the Fender Pro Jr, removing the sm57. It's a different game. Who knew replacing one mic with another that costs about 3x's as much actually, really, made a huge difference.

I've put some LDC's in front of the amps before but wasn't nuts about the sound - pretty much every mic I've tried - I've always ended up going back to the tried and true 57 - until now.

Love this thing.

The PR30 is probably a little better for amp cabinets....

It's a bit cheaper too - but it really doesn't have enough bottom for bass cabinets and kick drums.
