      Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone (272223)
Availability:  


Capture live sound like never before in the new colorful glow of this professional-grade mic.

The Fin Dynamic Mic captures remarkably natural, clear sound and is designed for live sound, recording, and broadcast applications. The exceptional performance is achieved thanks to a special magnet structure with a large 1-1/18" aluminum low mass voice coil assembly similar to the Heil PR 20. The frequency response is 60 Hz - 18 kHz with that traditional Heil Sound mid range "bouquet" at 4 kHz, presenting incredible brilliance and presence. The Heil Fin exhibits a tight linear cardioid pattern. The chrome finish is a special "showchrome," where the steel body is copper-plated and then double chrome-plated, producing a deep chrome finish. A blue molded internal foam windscreen inside the grill covers the large diameter Heil dynamic microphone element mounted in a specially tooled Sorbothane shock mount.

The fun part of The Fin is the four L.E.D. lamps mounted inside. These can only be illuminated when using The Fin into one of the 3-pin balanced XLR inputs of a professional mixing console that supplies a +48 volt DC phantom voltage down the balanced mic line.

Standard 5/8" 27-thread connection allows The Fin to be mounted on booms or floor stands.

The Fin mic from Heil Sound is terrific for vocals, instrument amplifiers, harmonica, and speech, and puts the fun back into the dynamic microphone.

Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone Features:

  • Frequency response: 60Hz - 18 kHz
    Polar pattern: cardiod
    Impedance: 600 Ohm balanced
    Output level: -52.9dB
    End fire generating element: 1-1/8" diameter dynamic
    Polarity: Pin 2+
    Magnet structure: Neodymium, iron, and boron
    Case structure: Steel
    Chrome finish

    Includes:
    Aluminum carrying case


Heil Sound The Fin Dynamic Microphone Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 4" W x 6" L
    Stem height: 2-3/4"
    Weight: 26.4 oz.

  • One of the best mics I've ever owned !!

    As reviewed by Mike Carey on 9/23/2012

    I love my Fin. Great looks and great sound. The only problems I've had with it are; I had to get a quick release adapter to make it easier to mount and remove, I had to get an XLR cable with a small enough diameter at the plug end so that it would fit beside the adapter and when I tried to use it with my TC Helicon vocal harmonizer, I would get a very audible hum. I considered buying the Shure Super 55 because of the last problem, but, my soundman wants me to keep the Fin because of the vocal quality and clarity. I bought a DigiTech Vocalist Live 3 Vocal Harmony Processor Pedal, and that solved the hum problem. I'm glad I kept it because it's been a great mic and it's very rugged. I still give it 5 stars even with the few problems I've had, because I was able to solve them and it really cuts throgh the mix.

  • here comes the BOOM!!!!

    As reviewed by Shawn MacEachern on 1/23/2013

    Hey this mike brought our sound out from under water. I sing with less stress on my voice trying to overcome my old peavey 580TN dynamics limitations. Brought the boom back in our sound. Thanks for recommending the Heil "The Fin" microphone!

  • Sounds Even Better Than It Looks!

    As reviewed by Brad Bentley on 11/15/2012

    THE STRAIT-UP TRUTH: I am a professional work-for-hire musician (keyboardist and vocalist). I ordered this mic (since it is not in stock at GC)and hoped it would be what I expected. Simply put, I AM ABSOLUTELY AMAZED AND IMPRESSED! I didn't expect for the mic to sound better than it looked! HOW I USE THIS MIC: I run all my vocals through a TC Electronics Helicon VoiceLive 2. With the Phantom Power turned on, the LED's work wonderfully, adding a "cool factor" that everyone talks about. The Fin is now my main mic on stage for every gig (unless the band I'm hired for thinks I'm out-gunning the lead guy). SO HOW DOES IT REALLY SOUND??? The sound of this mic is truly awesome. Its presence, punch and clarity are remarkable. In my line of work, I have sang into almost every professional mic out there and can tell you that this mic is definitely one of the best sounding mics I've used. I am more than satisfied, and I highly recommend this tool for anyone serious about their vocals. WHY GET ONE??? There are certain tools that set you apart from the rest. This mic is one of those tools. All Heil mics are a smart choice for the professional, and the Fin just happens to be sexy as well! WHAT WOULD I CHANGE? I would change how the LED's illuminate the mic. You can see four "hot spots" where the LED's are located, and the light needs to be more diffused in order to equally illuminate the entire grill of the mic. My solution was to open the mic and install some wax paper around the sides of the grill on the inner side of the colored windscreen, thus diffusing the LED's and giving the mic a uniform look when lit. I would also make the windscreen opaque white and put multicolored LED's inside with a small button on the mount so that the LED's could be set to Red, Blue, Green, White, etc. I'm not about to buy three of these just for three colors, but I would willingly pay a little more for the multicolor addition.
