  1. +1 to using a better lavalier microphone for dialogue recording. Sennheiser Evolution G3 wireless systems sound a lot better if you substitute a good lavalier microphone for the one included. Tram, Sonotrim, Sanken COS-11, DPA, or one of several models of Countryman lavaliers all sound so much better and fuller than the Sennheiser ME2. For a time I used Sennheiser MKE2 lavaliers with Sennheiser Evolution wireless systems. The MKE2 mics had a decent sound uncovered, much better than the ME2 mics, but, when concealed, were nevertheless problematic with respect to clothing noise an
  2. I used the Beyer DT-48 headphones (with mono or stereo wiring) from my first Nagra on, up until about 7 years ago, when I got tired of paying for increasingly expensive repairs and experiencing the classic DT-48 ear-clamp discomfort. What I appreciated about the DT-48 headphones was that they provided an early warning system for clothing noise or lavalier microphone rustle. If I heard the noise just slightly in the DT-48s I knew it wasn't too late to fix it. I could just make an adjustment at the end of the take and no one would ever be troubled by it. The little noise would be unlikely to
  3. I'm in Paris, France for the months of September and October of 2014. I can offer my services as: Cameraman, Sound Mixer, local Line Producer or Interviewer -- while I'm here. Normally I'm based in New York. My native language is English, but I speak fluent French. Please send me a PM through this forum for more information + my website.
  4. Seems similar in principle to the Sanken RM11 rubber mount for the COS 11. Has anyone tried both?
  5. So many good pieces of advice from the group. Especially about physical conditioning and about ladder use. Ideally you should have both a full-sized ladder AND a small step ladder. Being able, whenever the situation allows it, to choose the ladder that most easily allows you to boom from the waist is such a boon. I've found that on some show promo shoots they may run the same two or three sentence line 20 or 30 times to get what they want -- without a cut. You want to be standing on your ladder with your pole at waist level, booming the presenter from above, only concentrating on
  6. Just FYI, I believe the Sennheiser G2 transmitters use 50mw, whereas the Lectrosonics UM200 transmitters use 100mw. If you are getting different performance from each of your different systems at the same distance and frequency setting then the signal strength of the transmitters may be a factor in your wireless's ability to overcome competing RF in the background. Background RF is not necessarily constant. So, even in a fairly clear frequency, the RELATIVE strength of an intermittent spike of interference becomes higher as your own transmitter strength decreases or as your transmitter-to-r
  7. I continue to get re-directed to some page about wireless ip routers when I choose a search result that is supposedly related to jwsoundgroup. This is the unintended destination: http://url4short.info/ad539e15
  8. I think I paid $700 in 1974 for my Nagra III made in 1965. Magnificent monophonic recording! I know the year it was made because the serial numbers of Nagras generally contain the last two digits of the year of manufacture.
