  1. DONE. Thank you Jeff. JWSOUND is such a valuable resource and a great community.
  2. Personally I think these two mics match very closely. I use them together mostly during sit downs interviews (along with 6061/4061’s) and love the sound (match). The CMIT obviously has the benefit of built in High Pass filters and the 4017c does not. I’ve thought about getting a 4017b but really can’t justify it with the nice sound the CMIT produces. 90% of the time if I’m swinging a boom it’s my 4017c at the end. There should be no issues at all in Post.
  3. while this isn’t what you describe seeing years ago …I did find these two options(links below) …not sure if any of these would work. Honestly though…how much water is too much…I would think simply covering the battery slider door (Denecke TS-c) with some water proof tape and just putting it back into the cordura bag it comes with would keep it pretty dry in most rain/snow/ storm conditions. Or are we talking it needs to withstand “floating in the ocean”? https://www.trewaudio.com/product/mto-slateslicker/ https://www.gothamsound.com/product/slate-rain-cover?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIst2uq-f19QIVmsizCh3FuQNyEAQYAiABEgIjm_D_BwE
  4. The lightest bag is no doubt going to be any bag with a Zaxcom Nova……BUT sometimes it’s not the weight of your bag but how strong your core muscles and back are. Yoga, Healthy diet and just general exercise helped me EXTREMELY well. I constantly think about getting a lighter combo of SD633 or 833 / LECTRO SRC’s but I know from years of experience that it’s not going to be MUCH lighter then my 664/ 3x SRC’s, ant distro, IFB, batts and cables when you add it all up. Sure the “footprint” of a 633 or 833 will be smaller but weight difference will be minimal. A Nova setup will win in a Weight contest hands down any day. Best advice is take care of your core and back with basic stretches/ yoga. Sit the bag down whenever you can, don’t try to be a hero and wear it all day. I also carry a small run bag (extra TX’s/ Lav’s, batts, cables etc ) I’ll drop wherever so I don’t carry anything unnecessary. Stay hydrated and stay limber. Good luck!
  5. maybe something like this? https://sanken-mic.com/upload/pdf/en/cms-7s.pdf
  6. Thanks Jim! Yeah, after a few minutes you can really see Sting open up and really relax and enjoy the conversation. The whole shoot was just super smooth, zero issues at all. I absolutely love the sound of my DPA’s, very natural to my ears. Personally I would have used more 4017c during the performances but those 6061’s do the job.
  7. I know we have quite a few musicians - or a least a few who dabble in that world- in this group and I thought y'all might enjoy this piece I worked on. I really enjoyed Ricks interviewing skills and Sting and Dom really seemed to enjoy themselves. Definitely not your typical fluff piece, Plus bonus cameo of me at the end! Microphones used: DPA 6061' (x3) DPA 4017c DPA 4097 Scheops CMIT5u
  8. ~I'd love to try the DPA one as I use their stuff a lot and really like it~ ~The DPA also really interests me as I use DPAs in lots of other ways, my Lavs are all DPAs too~ I absolutely LOVE all my DPA microphones…i have the CMIT5u and it pairs nicely with my 4017c to my ears. The size and reach is pretty intense for how short this mic is, some have commented about handling issues but I haven’t had any. My Lav’s are 6061’s and 4060’s and then I’ll toss out my 4097’s at any chance I get. The sound is just….perfect. My only regret with my DPA’s is that I didn’t jump on them sooner….I was Sanken cos-11s for many years. Then I went fully in with DPA and haven’t looked back. the 416 is a champ…absolutely can’t go wrong. I only sold mine after not using it as much due to already having a MKH60…and CMIT5u…and 4017c…etc ….you get the idea… but of course as everyone said. It’s a very personalized choice and definitely defines your sound. Good luck!
  9. The Rycote wind jammer did NOT work at all for me. Totally film flam. NEVER stayed on, BUT that Bubblebee 4097 SE is the the JAM. Easy to use, and great wind protection. Interesting….
  10. No disrespect, but whenever I see someone doing the head-boom- hold- move I just think amateur hour… but each their own. I mean “maybe” for a quick arm rest/ repo but for extended holding, there are better ways. Again no disrespect, you do you!
  11. I have two of the JL2-Plus chargers (Blue) and they work great and this was a big selling point for me when upgrading my batteries to the NP-9X. I know “of” the older grey style IDX NP1 chargers but thought it was NiCad only, I do not know if it’s compatible. My assumption would be if it’s has “JL2-Plus” on the chassis (Grey or Blue model) it should work. According to the note on IDX website… https://idxtek.com/products/np-9x “NP-9X is still compatible with all current accessories and chargers like the JL2-Plus” but when in doubt give’m a shout!
  12. I picked up two of these to supplement my LS7’s. So far they rock. Ive used the D tap to charge my IPad/ phone and TC boxes. I picked up a small D tap to USB on Amazon, just in case I don’t want to tap off my BDS USB power. I have yet to put them through a full day of my standard power hungry setup (664/8 SRB’s/ CL12 ) but I did run it for 12hrs running my 664 / 1 Srb and it was 75% at wrap! I also really like that they come with rubber covers for the power pins and that the old JL2 charger works to charge them.
  13. @ PMC nice find with the Williams Pouch. I like it! Quick search didn’t yield any results, i might shoot them an email and see if they have any old stock laying around. @bcopenhagenI have yet to find anything better (cost effective/ performance) then the $9 Comtek belt clips. I always have a stock on hand for the inevitable break. ive tried a few of the K-tek pouches, while very nice design, they didn’t last much longer then the $9 OG Comtek clips. Your mileage may vary of course depending on the Production. https://ktekpro.com/news/protective-stingray-pouch-comtek-receivers/
  14. Bummer you’re having difficulty with the BBI concealers. I’ve been using them for awhile now and absolutely love them. I mainly use them with my DPA 6061’s and 4061’s with no issues at all on T Shirts, ties mounts, bra’s etc. I have used them with Sanken Cos-11’s a few times and usually remove the front bumper wire thing - so it’s only the Rubber mount - just because I feel it’s bulky on that lav size, but always had the same results, just perfect. + 1 on the spacer method w/ an Overcover as well.
  15. I use that Rycote windjammer with my 4097, it’s.....ok. Doesn’t always feel like it’s secure, there’s a snap like button that sorta holds if you get it just right. I really wish there was another option. I did pickup some Bubblebee Industries “Piece of Fur” to DIY something better....
