    Sennheiser MKH60: Any reports of counterfeits?

    Thanks, Eric. That is what I thought, but just trying to be forewarned/forearmed before I go check them out. I will take along my trusty MixPre and a set of phones to give them a listen. Cheers, Ron
  3. Has anyone sited or heard of MKH60 counterfeits? I am able to inspect prior to purchase, so I will look for obvious signs and do an audio test.

    I posted that link because the OP is in Toronto, according to his profile info. They have branches located in all major centres in Canada.

    Recommendations for versatile PA speakers

    I started using QSC (currently own a dozen 10s, 12s and 15s) a decade ago and got rid of everything else. They were best in class when I did the assessment then, and I haven’t seen anything else that would make me change now.

    Why I'm sick (Literally)

    Canada's public broadcaster, CBC, ran a satirical/homey "news" show for several years called the "Rick Mercer Report". One of the segments, "Rick's Rant", had Rick pacing briskly through some back alleys close to CBC home base in down town Toronto. The cameraman, Don Spence, was a master at quickly walking backwards with an eye in the cup for a couple hundred + epsiodes. Love it or hate it, you need to be seriously talented to pull this off.

    I have used the "plucking" technique to tune guy wires on communication towers. It works;)

    Proper Lav Mic Techniques

    Does anyone have the stock number for a Rycote sticky to fit a SM58? Asking for a friend....
  14. Jay, thanks for the link! I just spent a very enjoyable 30 minutes with a cup of coffee on a lazy Sunday morning listening to some very interesting sounds, complete with images. Our world is a very intriguing place. The details below our usual focus are vast and, to me, very humbling.
  15. To capture the melodic voice I would use a solo neutral mic (U89, TLM170, etc.) or a nice ribbon within the critical distance to focus the image, and a stereo pair farther out (spaced omni, fig. 8), placed to capture the amount of ambiance you want the room to contribute. From my locker I would use a Rode NTR as the main mic and a pair of MKH20 for the pair. Although it is tempting to use a stereo pair for the main capture, I would advise against it. Even slight movements of a single instrument facing a close pair will confuse the stereo imaging.
