The Heil HH-1 drum mic mount is patent pending, in part, for its utility in mounting microphones to drums securely. The HH-1 offers several options to mount, including via the rim, or to the mounting hoops of the drums. The fully adjustable HH-1 was developed with input from jazz drummer and producer, Hunter Herman (hence the HH-1 designation). Like most drummers, Mr. Herman had (in the past), been forced to use methods of mounting drum mics that left him wanting better solutions. Like all producers, he demands mic placement that best captures drum sounds. The HH-1 addresses the need to place drum mics in perfect proximity to the drum to get the desired sound, while ergonomically mounting, and remaining fully adjustable. Whether top mounting, or for when you need a little space between the drum & mic, and/or you’re mounting from underneath, you can place your mic with confidence. Mic’ing drums can be challenging considering variables in drum design, number of drums & even the style of the drummer. With the HH-1, you can get into the tightest of tight spots, and you can place microphones where they are going to operate at their optimum level of performance. In live situations, the HH-1 lets sound technicians do great work, without fear of mic stands moving around, or worrying about inferior mounts that tend to break. When you hook up with the rock solid HH-1 mic mount from Heil Sound, You can forget about your mic’ing troubles and start making music.
