    waterproofing and mounting a lectro bodypack?

    I have 4 x MM400a transmitters and they have seen a lot of this work A B6 is a bit frail for rugged situations so they all have B3's that are more rugged mike

    Lavs for ties

    I've long use a B6 with it's very crisp cap. Use a small piece of tape to keep in place and if possible use the cleft in the tie. Viewing most films and big TV dramas currently, that's how it's done and it sounds good. - but you do have to experiment! mike

    Recording music performances on set

    Seems silly that something music driven cannot allow visible mikes. 1- Do they want a good music recording? 2- Can it be recorded and done to playback? Questions need to be asked! Mike

    New to Nagra!!

    I designed/built and fitted a 50Hz crystal source into my one so that it could be used as a single track sync recorder. I then transfered the audio and 50 Hz into my Nagra 4.2 and onto 1/4 inch tape. mike
