What is Bob Heil, K9EID famous for?
Bob Heil is responsible for taking the world of live rock and roll from a fairly puny sound from the band's amps, to the booming wall to wall of volume we enjoy today during concerts. He worked with The Who, The Grateful Dead, Jeff Beck, Joe Walsh and many other performers. Remember the "talking guitar" that Peter Frampton played? Another one of Bob's creations. Today he manufactures high quality microphones that are used in music and communications. Read More
