  3. I'm replacing my ME2 and ME4 lavalier mics for my Sennheiser G3/G4's. My top consideration at this time is the omni Countryman-B6. I would love to hear any pros/cons on this Countryman-B6 decision or any other replacement recommendations ? LivingAudio,
  4. I'm a camera / video guy. Every now and then I have an interview or a corporate shoot where I have to work solo, and that includes the sound. I have been using the Rodelink wireless lav kits for a few years now and I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I've been looking at the workhorse Sennheiser G4, which would fit my use case perfectly. However, I find it a little hard to decide the configuration - I know I definitely don't want to use the ME-2 lav. I am trying to decide between these options: 1. G4 512P with the MKE-2 microphone - around 700-800€ This would get me a decent micro
  5. Hi All! Inspired by Rado's and Atheismystic's RM11/ COS technique threads, I have decided to post my own Tram-50 technique. My technique is similar to the turtle clip accessory offered by Tram, but offers a lower profile and the ability to customize/adapt the cage. It also avoids the vampire clips that come with the Tram mic cage. This technique isolates clothing from rubbing the mic capsules head. In addition, this techique allows the mic to act as a boundary microphone of sorts. I find this improves the tonal qualites of the mic and to my ears, makes the sound of the mic less hon
  6. Hey! I have a mic (DPA 4060) with a torn outer jacket, halfway up the cable. Microphone seems fine, no damage to the shield or cabling itself. Anyone have repair methods to share? A particular gauge of heat-shrink, type of tape, or liquid repair? cheers Adam
  7. I've done a lot of homework, but the complexities of the wireless lavalier world aren't making complete sense to me yet. Any advice and/or education would be appreciated... I have a recorder/mixer, a shotgun mic with all the accessories, and a bag. This will mainly be used for indoor talking head film commercials, and the occasional indie film. Am I correct for everyone you want to wire up will require a Receiver, Bodypack Transmitter, and a Lavalier Microphone? The R & T are just tonally neutral communication devices, and the lav mic dictates the quality and character of the sound?
  8. Is there anything new in the world of lav mics that I should know about? I've had a hard time finding anything that I like better than the cos-11 (at least for my particular use).
  9. Hello everyone, First time posting here. I recently purchased a Sanken Cos-11d (Normal Sensitivity) and the connector seems very shoddy to me, for what is supposed to be a very high quality mic. I checked with a friend of mine and he verified that the connector on his is different (we are both using the same 1/8" connection for a Sennheiser G3 system). I purchased it through B&H, so I assume that it is genuine. The connector says Hicon on the outside and it is made of plastic. Often times, when I attach or removed it from the transmitter, the Hicon plastic part comes unscrewed fr
  10. So earlier on set today my Tram TR-50 BPS got yanked and broke at the base of the power supply. I was wounding if anyone knows how to disassemble the power supply so I can get access to the XLR circuit board without damaging anything?
  11. Hi there, This is my first post so thanks in advance for being gracious with me. I'm beginning to build my audio kit and, because i'd like to buy a COS-11D lavalier mic, i reached out to Sanken with a question. But, after their reply, it seems clear to me it simply wasn't understood. Here's what i asked: And here was the response from Sanken: Am i missing something obvious? Was this their way of saying, "No, what you want to do is simply not possible." Or were they instead just saying, "We'd really prefer you buy two microphones. That always works out better for us." Any advice and nudges in
  12. Hi all, I have decided to do a little test between four models of lavaliers. There are four audio tracks, all meant to be a comparison between four different models of lavaliers. The four models are as follows: Sony ECM-88, COS11X, Tram TR-50 and AT899. I will play a little game and let you all choose which one is which. *Hint: The lavs listed above are not in the same order as the audio tracks. Setup All Lavs are mounted externaly. All lavs are 6 inches from my mouth. All are the same height from my mouth and are mounted width wise within three inches in the middle of my
  13. Hello, I am getting two sets of audio ltd 2020 radio systems and have a choice of either sony or a tram mic. What would you say about them and which is a better value you think? I already have two micron sets with dpa 4060 lavs and so i am used more to their form factor. Which one sounds better with audio ltd systems in your opinion? Thanks, Bartosz
  14. Hi guys! I was in a meeting about an upcoming TV series yesterday when the producer dropped in the old "oh and we'll get the presenter in a swamp and he might dive in." Having never been presented with this problem before, I thought it best to ask those who may have. Based on this conversation, I imagine I'd have to purchase a water-resistent transmitter, but how best to protect the lav when / if our guy gets submerged in muddy water? Any help would be appreciated! Cheers, Eren
  15. Hi, I was thinking about plastic/rubbery lav concealers such as this DPA one: http://a248.e.akamai.net/origin-cdn.volusion.com/b3o4z.gn3gt/v/vspfiles/photos/9999-13614-2.jpg?1362991732 Currently the lavs I have are Rode Lavs and OST TL-40's. Does anyone know of lav concealers that work well with these mics? What about these quieting sleeves, anyone tried these and what did you think about them? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/417402-REG/Garfield_SGARHL_Hush_Lav_Lavalier.html Thanks!
  16. I have several sanken cos 11 lavaliers. For one project I need a headset. Is there a decent way to use a sanken lavalier as a headset? Just wondering...

  18. Hi everyone, I find myself keep changing the way I store my lavs in my pelican and can't find the perfect way to store them. Fast access, durable, space conscious.... If some of you feel like you have a satisfying solution, would you please share with me or perhaps upload a photo of your box, case, store space, etc... ? Thank you in advance guys/girls! Engin
  19. Get your Lavalier repaired....Wilcox will make them just like new! Or change connector's, fix head or new cable! We are the BEST!!!!
  20. I have been using DPA 4060 lavs for a few years now, for both environmental field recording and dialogue recording, and have always been blown away by how much detail they pick up for a miniature microphone! Recently, for the first time I found myself using some Tram lavs to capture dialogue on a shoot, and I must say I absolutely love them. Although they don't pick up the top-end as well as the 4060s, they seem do deal with the low-mids better and really add a particular warmth that I found to be lacking in the DPA lav mics. I also find them easier to mix with my Rode NTG3 recordings. A
  21. Short version (if you don't have time to read the whole thing): I've been looking at the threads on lavs, and one thing I don't see discussed is which lavs are well-suited to mount to talents as fast as possible, with as little consequence as possible? (eg. as little trial and error as possible before I can get rid of muffled audio, clothing rustle, etc.). I will need to look at the following: - Accessories that will work wonders with the mic in question (eg. COS-11 Vampire clip). - Flat vs. other versions? - Cable noise? My budget is unlimited (since the most expensive lavs I kno
  22. Being on the verge of spending money again, I want to make sure this is the right step before parting ways with my hard earned cash. I'm a sound mixer who is relatively new to the craft (about 9 months doing location audio) and I want to invest in some pro quality wireless. One of the things that I feel is most key to being a good sound person is to have pristine audio. Now pristine is a relative idea but getting as close as possible is a good approach when you don't have the clients or money to access the top quality Zaxcom's/Lectro systems. My question is about the sound quality of
