;D  So let me get this straight - you saw the hearings, heard the not-great sound always on the edge of feedback, and said "this is the mic I need!!!"?    ;D

If you're looking for a good gooseneck mic, I would recommend the Countryman A3, Shure Microflex, Earthworks...

BTW Shure has a nice windscreen that will fit a lot of other mics, the A99WS.

I was just wondering if they were using some special windscreen to stop the constant ppopping I had always heard. The sound overall seemed OK for what they were doing not too thin not too boomy and intelligible. 
If only the mic could be invisible and not need to be near the speaker it would be perfect.
Thanks for the recommendations I am a big countryman fan but I think $700 would be too much, do you know anything about the Isomax 4RF.

The Isomax 4RF is pretty good.  Before the A3 our standard issue was the Isomax 4.  I remember always having to cut some 4k or something like that, but overall a very good lectern mic.

Please, NOT Political
Anyone know what the Jan 6 committee is using for mics?  This is the first time I have heard goosenecks at congress that weren't  popping like crazy.

Thanks

We use shure mx418s with the 183(omni) capsule for outdoor events where wind noise is a concern. They are almost impervious to wind noise and plosives, but ringing them out can be a bit more labor intensive than the average cardioid variant.

The 183, 184, and 185 capsules are remarkably flexible little buggers.

Find me one of those that actually works and I'm all in!


I have the Countryman A3C's and the 4RF's both are very good.

I had an invisible mic.  Couldn't find it after I unplugged the XLR and laid it down....

But seriously thanks for all the suggestions and advice.

Does the windscreen become invisible when placed on an invisible mic?

If it's made from unobtanium instead of foam, of course  ;D

Earthworks are great but expensive. I have been using EV polar choice 18s for several years with great success. I also put multi band compression @ 125 to remove the big boom.
