  1. I use a DPA 6060 as my lav which one do you guys think will have the most similar sound to that lav?
  2. Which do you guys think is better sounding for the majority of voices for handheld speakers at events?
  3. Here is my review of the Really Right Stuff Travel Size Boom. First off I want to start off by saying Really Right Stuff sent me this boom pole on loan. However, I was not paid anything by them and this is my honest review. I will also say that I own quite a lot of their products including their fluid head, plates, 15mm rods, ect.. I paid full price for all their products I own, I just like to own the best and highest performing everything. I finally will state that I do not buy because of a brand. I buy from research, reviews, and real-world use. Lets start off with what you
  4. Thanks all for the answers let me ask you this as far as input noise the Zoom F6 is -127 dBu vs Sound Devices which is -129 dBu. In real world do you think there is any real noticeable difference in the noise floor when using ray a ribbon microphone?
  5. The Zoom F6 has a dynamic range of 131 DB (I got that number from Zoom) and the MixPre II series has a dynamic range of 142 DB. Since the whole point of the dual AD converters and 32 bit audio is that you cannot clip and no limiters are needed. My question is do you guys think 131DB in the F6 is enough or the extra 11DB on the MixPre II series has any real advantage? -Alex
  6. On my Lextrosonics SMWB I have to add around 6db gain over the COS11D wired in universal. For the servo wired COS11D the gain is the same as the 6060. I am also using the DAD3056 Microdot adapter. Not a Zaxcom, but hopefully that will help answer your gain questions. There is probably diffrent wiring you can have done in the Zaxcom to give you more gain on the lav to lower the noise floor.
  7. Thanks for all the feedback. So many more brands to research! I wish I could try them all out somewhere before buying one. I have some Really Right Stuff equipment such as their fluid head and it is one hell of a head for their first fluid head. Not as good as my O'Conner head, but it is also less than a 1/3rd of the O'Conner's price. So I will stop fan boying and look into the more established boom brands, until reviews come out on it.
  8. What is the best carbon fiber boom pole in 2019? Panamic, Ambeint, Really Right Stuff's soon to be released, Gitzo, K-Tec, Ect... I am looking for my first nice boom that is not the aluminum Rode one I have. I am also conflicted on what size to get for example Really Right Stuff has a travel boom that goes 6.4 feet and can fit in my carry on which is a huge plus, however the non carry on size is a great 14 feet. Not having to check is always great when traveling, but having a longer pole is also beneficial. What are your guy's opini
  9. Anyone use a Sennheiser MKE-2 Gold on a Lectro transmitter? They make one terminated for TA5-F, anyone have good experiences with them?
  10. The nostalgia aspect had me intrigued. Will for sure wait for real world reviews.
  11. What is the difference between the DAD3056 and DAD6021? Is there any gain difference between the two? Also is there compatibility issues with either one with using the really old units that require the universal wiring? I have a SMWB that I use 60 percent of the time and have a COS11D on it with universal wiring and it has the perfect. For DPA is the DAD3056 or DAD6021 most similar to a COS11D with universal wiring? Thanks, Alex
  12. Not sure if DVE store uses the same supplier, but I use them or BH for 99 percent of what I buy.
  13. I had problems with 2 diffrent servo wired lavs. So now my lavs are universally wired.
  14. The bra clip works great, have had good success with it.
  15. I ended up getting the spacer bubble with the short and long hair. BUBBLEBEE Industries has great customer service and I am so far very happy with the product. The spacer bubble has great transparency (Has not been windy to test out the fur covers yet).
  16. Thanks everyone! Mailed it to Mark this morning appreciate the recommendations.
  17. I am in Orange County California, but I can ship it anywhere.
  18. I need a recommendation for who to use to rewire my COS-11D. I have a normal sensitivity COS-11D wired for the Sennheiser G3 that I want to change to the Lectrosonic TA5F to use on a SMWB. Who do you all recommend? I originally bought from BH photo an additional COS-11D but it was obviously not properly wired as I had to put my SMWB at max gain (gain setting 44) to get the -20 to blink red and hit full modulation. After reading the post here (link below) I discovered it was miswired and send it on its way back to BH. Now I just want to get someone that knows
  19. Well that seemed unanimous to get the bubblebee. Now I am between the standard windkiller or the spacer with the short fur.
  20. Rycote classic softie or BUBBLEBEE Industries Windkiller short hair. Which do you guys think is better? BUBBLEBEE also has the spacer bubble kit which looks like could be a winner too. Thanks, Alex
  21. I like Tentacle's Timecode Tool pretty easy and simple. I am on a pc and the pc version is not as fully featured as the mac version (Tentacle Studio).
  22. The c vs b preamp sound virturaly identical you just lose the filtering options. Thanks JonG for making me feel better about humidity and the Schoeps.
