  1. Consider the Line Audio CM3/CM4 as perhaps the best value option.
  2. Thanks for these initial thoughts. If one already has the Schoeps and the MKH50 do you see this complementing those in any way or is too similar to the MK41? How did you find the reach compared to the Schoeps?
  3. How does this do outdoors in a noisy environment as compared to the CS-3?
  4. I use the 801, 802, and TL-40s with my G3s. Highly recommended and OST has great customer service.
  5. Ha. Thanks for sharing your experience. You never miss the limiters of the 552 as compared to the F8?
  6. "The F8n's dual-channel recording mode allows you to create safety tracks by doubling up the recordings from inputs 1-4 onto tracks 5-8. Tracks can be controlled independently, allowing you to customize each safety track with different gain, limiting, and more." ----- I have a SD-442 mixer. If I put this in front of the F8n and used the SD-442's limiters, could I then use the F8n's dual channel recording to record hotter tracks on the safety channels? Is this a rational approach?
  7. How close to the COS-11D would the Oscar Sound Tech TL-40 get you on the G3?
  8. In what context do you see the 10T preferable to the 633, apart from number of inputs?
  9. I've appreciated his and many other's contributions here over the years. I find this forum unique for the consistent quality it manifests. A rare bird amongst online forums.
  10. I've done several searches but I've come up with very little information about the Audix 1280B with shotgun capsule. Does anyone have this mic? How does it compare to something like the Rode NTG3 or Sanken CS-3e? I did find a single reference from a Senator Mike who in 2012 stated: "I've used the Audix 1280 HC and 1280s and their micro-booms myself, and they are terrific"
  11. Thank you all for the replies and reality checks. I will follow up on the information provided and attempt to find someone local who I can solicit (trick?) to let me observe and learn from. I'm guessing there aren't that many boom ops in my area (Edmonton, AB, Canada), but I will find out.
  12. I have my boom pole, my shotgun and hypercardiod mics, and my SD 302 mixer feeding a Zoom H4n recorder. I am recording dialogue indoors and outdoors. I've never operated a boom pole before and would like to learn some of the basic technique. I have Google'd the subject but I was hoping someone could point me to an online source that they felt did a really good job covering the basics.
  13. I very specifically need a hypercardiod. I considered the Oktava but saw too much feedback about it being a difficult/poor choice for boom use due to significant handling/indoor wind noise. I own a NTG-2. It's not suitable for the interior dialogue work I'm trying to do. The CS1 is interesting but not a hyper. I was considering the NTG-3 (as a 416-like mic) for interior dialogue since it seems to do okay indoors but in the end I found I really did need the hypercardiod pattern. I think the only non-hyper that I would consider is the CS3e but it's out of my current budget of about $600.
  14. And my second question would be where is a USA or Canada source to purchase a MBHO 603?
