Great alternative to Heil PR-35

Was hoping to get some HEIL Pr-35s, as I had great experiences with them. Sweetwater doesn't carry HEIL and recommended the PM9 as an alternative and I couldn't be happier. It's not quite as flat as the PR-35, but not nearly as hyped as a Beta 58. It is an incredibly natural sounding mic that is somehow warm and bright all at once. Clarity and power. So pleased.

The Sound Of Quality

As a Professional singer and knowing over the past 50+ years what gets the job done right, this is the right choice. This is my 2nd Miktek-PM-9 and I knew what to expect. I was not disappointed. This microphone rival or exceeds the performance of microphones selling for twice the price. If you want excellent noise rejection, mellow , but strong frequency response ( I sing in a wide range ) then you will love this piece of equipment. A splendid choice . I highly recommend this Microphone. A special Thank you as well to my rep. at Sweetwater for his help in making the selection of this mic the first time I bought it. Thank you Nathan.

Great mic!

I bought this mic to not only use live but in the studio as well. Having been a vocalist for many years using many different mics in a broad range of applications, I have developed a picky ear for personal equipment: I haven't used a 57/58 since the 80's... I actually became aware of Miktek watching a weekly music program that often uses this mic. I noticed how some of the better vocalists worked the mic, the overall sound, and was intrigued. I took a gamble after investigating finding nothing but good reviews and bought one. I agree with them. One of the earlier reviews here discussed how this mic might be a challenge for some vocalists who may not be attentive to their technique. I wholeheartedly agree. This is likely due to the high feedback rejection this mic offers as your 'sweet spot' around the front of the mic is tighter meaning closer to the center of the capsule. The presence effect occurs in a narrow range compared to most other popular live mics. It only took about 10 minutes on the mic to make the necessary adjustments to how one works this mic. It then became instinctive. I find using it much like playing a fine instrument. If you are in a loud environment prone to feedback, one just needs to stay tighter on the mic than usual. If you are working quieter sections or softer music, you can really work this to your advantage. A super warm mic with just the right amount of presence, bass enhancement depending on your plosive/consonant habits, and a sheen on the top that adds up to requiring little if any EQ live. In recording, it has a bit of a warmer sound than most in this range of super cardioids to my ear and requires little if any compression for my uses, something I discovered in hindsight. It is heavy but I rarely handhold mics anyway. I don't think the majority of singers or recording techs would be the least bit disappointed with this mic. Good stuff and worth more than what you pay for it!

Stellar

I have been a professional vocalist for 25 years. Gigs ranging from bar bands to stadium bands. I have always relied on Beta 58s or reg 58s. Let's just say that I won't be using 58s anymore. Best bang for your buck you are going to find. Period. Just buy it. Now. No really... buy it, right now. Miktek has a winner.

Amazing clarity and Solid build!!!!!

This is my first time using the Miktek brand, and we have been throughly impressed with our choice. My Sweetwater rep assisted me in finding the right mic for our two female vocalist, and our ladies have loved these mics. This mic has a well balanced tone, but super good in the low end registers of their voices. It's crisp enough to cut through, but not to crisp. I would definitely buy these again let me just say!

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

I personally own four Miktek PM9 mics. Everyone has used the "standard" dynamic mic at some point. The PM9 sounds like that... except AFTER an engineer has spent 20 minutes dialing in the EQ settings! These have a super-smooth midrange, big girthy bottom end, and a very articulate top end. They're perfect for any vocal application, especially live sound situations where the hypercardiod pattern helps reduce feedback. But mine see PLENTY of use in the studio too - guitar cab, bass cab, snare, toms, horns, backing vocals, etc.
