Tips for Wiring Opera/Theatre Singers?

Recommended Posts

I've been micing singers for operas over the past couple years, using lectrosonics transmitters with DPA 4071s.

 

Does anyone have experience with Leukoflex? Is it preferable to 3M surgical tape?

 

Thanks,

I think Leukoflex is the slightly stretchy matte-surfaced translucent tape similar to Blenderm, which is the go-to in musical theatre here in Australia. If so, I've used it and it is a very good option, although it (and Blenderm) do leave more residue on the mic cable than others. This can be hard to remove, the best trick is to use bit of Leukofix tape (the perforated tearable plastic tape) to dab off the residue - for some reason it grabs it right off the cable. As always, no matter what the tape says on the box, different performers will or won't be allergic to different things so you always need options.
