then a sandwich of Joes Sticky stuff

So you stick Joe's sticky stuff directly to their skin?

Yes, Joes is great stuff and I've never had a talent that didn't tolerate it.  Moleskin day after day can cause some red bumps on some guys that shave their chest. Using alcohol wipes is what makes this work. Without cleaning the skin of the natural oils will not provide a good adhesion and the mic will fall off when you can least afford it.

 

Also I use makeup wedges inserted along the transmitter antenna to keep the antenna from touching the fleshy part of the talent. This improves range dramatically.

You guys are dropping some serious knowledge and lessons learned the hard way. I'm just shocked and totally excited to find this forum! Thank you! I felt like I was completely alone except for my mentor. I can't get over how well you guys speak my language.
