I've been contracted out on an art project to record some applause in a concert hall in Germany--specifically in the city of Marl. We will honestly only be recording for one or two days, so I figured it'd be cheaper for the client to rent equipment over there rather than secure a Carnet and have extra baggage on the flight. Two questions:
1. Does anyone know of a good equipment rental house in Germany that I can speak to?
2. Most of the time I record production dialogue, not foley, so I'm wondering if anyone can give me feedback on a potential set up. For this session I was thinking of renting a 633, two MKH-50s and a 416.
- MKH-50s on both edges of the stage getting LR.
- MKH-416 in the centre on a high stand, reaching to the back of the room.
Thanks for any help you guys can give.
