  1. Sennheiser G3 with cos 11D

    I'd recommend it, I went this route before upgrading to lectros and got through lots of gigs with them... you can use your G3s for camera hops later on and reterminate the cos11s when the time comes. Win win.
  2. I'm about to make a couple cables up for use as camera hops from a Sr receiver (TA3F - XLRM), and am curious if people commonly use mini star quad on their cam hop cables for the extra shielding it provides - or if this is an irrelevant consideration for an 18 inch cable...
  3. MKH50, Sennheiser vs Rycote mount?

    I've been using a bongo tie for strain relief with the stock Sennheiser mount, pretty much in the same spot the rycote invision mount has it built in just to lock the xlr down. Other than that little mod I've had no issues with that mount...
  4. #metoo and sexism in general

    With wiring non pro talent in docu situations, I've found the hide-a-mic 'bra holder' to be very well received by female subjects and has made for an even smoother wiring process as it's pretty simple to understand mic placement etc..
  5. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    Thanks for sharing it!
  6. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    Not my trick! But i was really happy to find that a while back myself - puts the cable at the perfect length for your ifb while booming/utility or mixing out of the bag. A small bit of extra weight on the cable but I don't mind it.

    This is a good trick, I've done it to a few pairs of mine
  8. Looking Into Buying Zaxcom IFB

    +1 Working as boom/utility I've used the ERXs mostly on commercials. We've been using a RF venue CP beam to hit set (director/script/erx's on camera), and have been remoting a L-com omni antenna right beside village. For exteriors we've achieved up to 100 ft line of sight with the CP beam (though well always run a range test on the day). Range hasn't been as great with the omni so we'll generally not take any chances and get it as close to village as we can. I've only encountered 1 issue with interference on the ERXs - couldn't pinpoint the source but we changed frequencies on the ERXs and no problems after that. Hope that helps. Past the ERXs I've definitely found the lectro R1a's to be the most rocksolid of the bunch.
  9. Boom op-less

  10. Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    Quickfists - you can find em on amazon
  11. Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    I've been thinking of going down this route for a simple omb cart that would allow me to cut down on harness/bag wearing time, and hold my poles/cases when on the move. How have you been liking this set up? Anything you would change if you had to do it again?
  12. Safdie Brothers Talk About Audio on 'Good Time'

    Despite this odd interview I really enjoyed the movie! On top of directing, one of the bros also played a lead role in the film. I'm curious if it was a OMB doing sound on set - don't think I saw a boom op credit in there
  13. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    I'd push to rent COS11s wired for G3s from a local rental house. For $10-15/day you'll be a happy camper!
  14. Need a new boom stand. Suggestions?

    Recently picked up this stand for a few travel gigs and its been working great. Been hanging my backpack off it with a carabiner and its been very solid. Thanks for the recommendation!
