The Special Pink Pearl Microphone Will Help Bring Awareness To Breast Cancer

Heil Sound recently introduced the Pink Pearl PR20 large diaphragm vocal microphone, the first model introduction in the new Spotlight Series. Blazoned with the pink ribbon on a pink pearlescent finish, ten percent of the retail sale price and a minimum guaranteed donation of $6,800 will be donated to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation for the purpose of raising the awareness of breast health and breast cancer.

“Our own family has been affected by this terrible disease, and this is our way of helping raise the awareness of breast cancer,” says Sarah Heil, vice president of Heil Sound. “Early detection is the key to beating this thing and if we can help through being proactive in the entertainment industry then the Pink Pearl will have been a success.”

For more than 20 years, the Komen has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer through its support of innovative research and community-based outreach programs. Working through a network of U.S. and international Affiliates and events like the Komen Race for the Cure, the Komen Foundation is fighting to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by funding research grants and supporting education, screening and treatment projects in communities around the world.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was founded on a promise made between two sisters – Susan Goodman Komen and Nancy Goodman Brinker. Suzy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1978, a time when little was known about the disease and it was rarely discussed in public. Before she died at the age of 36, Suzy asked her sister to do everything possible to bring an end to breast cancer. Nancy kept her promise by establishing The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982 in Suzy’s memory.

The Heil Sound Pink Pearl PR 20 represents completely new dynamic microphone technology and is designed for a wide range of professional applications such as live sound, commercial broadcast, and professional recording. Its wide frequency range outperforms old industry technology and it can withstand huge amounts of SPL. The end result is a microphone that can answer the call to any application. For example, the gorgeous upper mid range makes the Pink Pearl PR 20 the absolute best live female vocal microphone on the planet.
