Don Lanier Newbie Posts: Mr Bob, As always its a pleasure to regale in the tales of old road I once called you on KMOX and asked you a bunch of questions about Mic Splitters and you were like Go away Kid, come by the store and well straighten you out, Which you did. Any chance your going to go further into Audio gear Bob, Your Ideas are still very relevant and your knowledge is still boundless, whether it be Radio or Audio I wish you well in all your endeavors and find it pretty cool I can drive up and talk to you, Mr Heil in person and your a down to earth guy.

I hope you guys stick around!
We have a lot of other good things going on here in addition to Bob's excellent presence. The level of professionalism of Whatever Works just keeps getting better.
But this shit is a science. There is nothing in the criminal or civil law which legalizes that which is otherwise illegal simply because the transaction takes place over the Internet.

Thanks Greg Absolutely -- this is great! And Bob, if you ever offer those purple Chucks as swag, I would so buy them. Bob, You know you've got to do this! Hallams Hero Member Posts: Loving this thread and pointed a few friends who have been doing live sound for years to it. First week in this job i noticed two crossovers from a pair of Heil speakers in the spares box.
Unfortunatley the speakers were nowere to be found. Bob Heil wrote on Wed, 11 June It was just so right! We had bunches of them on the first PA. Had four of the 1KW jobs, dozens of driving all of those large JBL mid range drivers, but they just couldn't take the road. Those 40' semi trailers would bounce the heck out of them. Getting the McIntosh dealership was interesting. I called Gordon Gow McIntosh and told him I wanted to be a dealer.
Of course they had to check things out. I could hear the laughing on the other end of the phone. Several attempts to talk Mr. Gow into this went by when finally he asked me the good question - could we handle an opening order?
Their opening order he told me would be 2 pieces of several amps and preamps I told him I had no interest in the consumer hi-fi line and gave him my opening order of assorted 50 amplifiers and I would be paying cash or check. Bob, I think by now, everyone should realize that your success is in no small part due to your business accumin.
Not only have you always had the confidence to put your money where your mouth is, you have had the money to do so. And, what a salesman!
Bob Heil Full Member Posts: I was thinking about this more last night, and I think the purple amps he had were Crown D's, which had been used to drive the cabinets with the 2 little tweeter horns. Does that make any sense? Clarence Moore was a ham radio operator who invented the Quad antenna system. He also had designed a large watt dual channel amplifier that was making some waves.
I need a better constructed power amp chain for the system we were using. SO I took a trip to Elkhart, Indiana. I arrived at the Crown factory a bit before You see, every day for a few moments, Mr. Moore had all of the employees join him and his wife Ruby in the chapel. He was a minister. Shortly after, I sat down to see about purchasing some Crown amplifiers. I wanted of them which raised all of the heads in the room Moore's first question was how I was to pay for them.
You see, I had put together a fairly large size theatre pipe organ over the 12 years I had been playing 6 nights a week. When I decided to 'hang it up' I sold the all of the organ equipment and had a fairly nice nest egg to start Ye Olde Music. I told them I would pay cash. And then came the second one. Immediately he stood up and shouted - "that is the devils's music and my amplifiers will NEVER be used for that" Guess they 'convinced' Mr.
Moore to re consider Several days later, I got a call from their sales director telling me he may have worked this out. They will be unbranded. They gave me the name of the sticker company Brady Drake in Wisconsin somewhere. So if you see any Crown amps I found some fascinating pictures earlier today Blizzard Sound drove their new semi to Marissa and 'loaded up'.
They actually did several jobs on the way back to Wisconsin Blizzard - a great name for this system Here are some of the fiberglass products from Heil Sound. Definitely a new direction for speakers and horns - produced in a plant we set up in Bloomington, Mn. We also did some of the fiberglass work in Marissa.
A young Billy Mueller was one of the first hired to start that project. Bob, you mentioned that you got out of the music business for a while. Do you mind expanding on that bit of your history? Thanks for all of the cool memories This allowed me to concentrate more on the touring company and building our own Heil Sound products. But about , many of our major touring acts were off the road. Sold the system to London SOund - that story was on the first page or two here.
I went back to experimenting with my beloved ham radio. Had been off the air for a decade or more and when I came back on the audio had deteriorated as the imports had come to the USA. Every dynamic mic I had encountered all had very little articulation so I borrowed some of that Paul Klipsch knowledge and 'tuned' the element. After all a dynamic microphone is basically a small speaker - backwards. Had several of my engineer friends that worked for the 'big boys' tell me it wouldn't work.
It was tuned to 2K. I never looked back on the PRO market. I then re-hired some of the old employees and Heil Sound was once again cranking! We have over amateur radio dealers, world wide and am constantly coming up with all kinds of unique and useful products for my wonderful hobby that has been my college education - and who could have guessed that all of those things I learned and did, are now coming back around to change the dynamic microphone industry of the professional microphone market?
It was Joe Walsh that ask me to do this. I hadn't listened to "Pro" microphones since the late 70's We ALL appreciate your wonderful insight of what was needed. I always carry my soldering iron - heck, one never knows when something breaks!
