Microphone manufacturer Heil Sound has announced that contemporary Christian band Big Daddy Weave will be a new endorser of the company.

Big Daddy Weave performs about 120 dates a year, mostly in 1000-1500 seat churches, and they also play theaters, small arenas and outdoor festivals.

Matthew Grunden is the band’s FOH engineer and production manager, a 20-year veteran of the music industry who tried out some Heil Sound vocal mics and was impressed right away.

 “I was blown away by the off-axis rejection on the RC35 capsule,” he said. “The fullness of the 35 capsule is amazing, but still has the clean top end for the clarity needed to put the vocal out in the front of the mix. We chose PR30s, PR31BWs, PR22s, and PR40s for the instrument side of the stage. The guitar amps sound fuller, the drums sound bigger compared to the other mics we used—but not in a ‘colored/pre-shaped’ way. When the instrument sounds right it makes the job at FOH less work and more fun.”

Lead singer Mike Weaver adds, “In gospel music the message is paramount. With the Heil mic I feel like so much of the heavy lifting is happening within the microphone itself. The sound in my ears is so transparent and full, I can just sing.”
