Which DPA Concealer are people recommending? Both the 4061 and 4071 are slightly larger than the TL40 yet I see people recommending both.

Which one specifically?

Thanks.

Im also looking for a good solution to hide the TL40. Anyone using this DPA concealer? 4061 or 4071? Is there any other better solution?
Thanks

I use a moleskin sandwich and double sided tape to attach to clothing or skin as the situation warrants.  I find myself using TL-40 lavs more and more these days.  The cable is a little thick and not very flexible, but I can afford to keep a whole lot more colors of the mics in my kit and can leave wires on talent when transmitters need to move to another actor when a scene changes.

The Sanken RM11 works well with the TL40

I bought the DMM0012 for the 4060. I bought four, actually.
They work incredibly well.

It comes with a couple of their double-sided round pieces of tape, but I just use 1" Topstick and cut them to fit.

Works better than the RM11, in my opinion. Very smooth edges.

Somebody on this board recommended one of these for the 0012, Jeremiah. Works great! I get three perfectlly fitting circles of topstick out of a 1" tab:

Thanks Karl. I saw that on Facebook.

I'm good with just cutting as needed. It looks like it works great, but in the end won't really save me any time.

If the movie you re working on involves a lot of screaming you ll be disapointed since it will distort much more than a cos-11. Hey, its a 110$ mic..

 

It's great for average level dialog though.

This is true. It's a great, affordable upgrade from ME2, but I've experienced capsule overloads from yelling/laughing...

Yeah, the TL40 has a lower than usual maximum SPL (115dB). A decent mic though.

Their white mic is so white it can all but hang out of a formal shirt.

Jeremiah is it possible to ask you some photos of the  DMM0012 with the TL40? To understand the size and how you use it? Thanks a lot :-)
