Hey all, I was lurking around on r.a.m.p.s. and I found some posts about this http://sanken.ch/english/det2-11.htm Thought it was strange but I don't think this chart was inside my sanken case when I bought them (brand new). Is it the way there are borders/edges are creating a Helmholz resonator? Seems like a neat way to boost HF. Can this be done in some way with other microphones? Or figuring out ways to take advantage of this property of sound even more so in other cases. I actually didn't think Sanken could do this until I found this on r.a.m.p.s. I feel like I could use some HF boost in the collar or up at the neck (or buried in a sweater or something). I usually use hush lavs in tie knots. I assume a hush lav doesn't offer the same HF benefit. I might try a different set-up now with the RM-11 mount, taking advantage of this HF boost. Sawrab
I own 5 Sanken COS-11 lav mics of various vintages and was wondering if anyone knows what ranges of serial numbers include the various versions: s, x, and d? It would be nice to know what version I'm really getting when buying used, or even new! I found no information about it on Sanken's web site. In case there is no clear answer, I'm going to share all but the last two digits of my serial numbers and encourage others to do the same. Perhaps we can reveal the break point in serial numbers for the different versions. 909XX - black COS-11s 940XX - black COS-11s 982XX - black COS-11s 1057XX - black COS-11x 1136XX - white COS-11d The only way I know what versions I own is because I bought all but the lowest numbered mic new from dealers. They came with boxes that indicated their specific model, and was also reflected on the receipt. Curiously, the box for the d version said COS-11x and came with COS-11x literature, but was stamped with a D. See a pic here: http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/3758/sankencos11.jpg For reference, the x version brought the following features/improvements: - New and Improved Durable Design (strain relief where the cable meets the mic body) - New Color Choices - Improved Moisture Resistance The d version brought: - Digital transmitter RFI filtering/shielding/rejection. I understand this came at the urging of Zaxcom to prevent interference from their digital transmitters (which affected random mics). Mark O.
