The Invisible Lav Covers - Original are the ultimate tool for transparency and invisibility when hiding your lavalier mic.

In this video, Aj talks through 3 of our favourite lav mic mounting techniques using The Invisible Lav Covers - Original:
PREPPING YOUR LAV MIC MOUNT (0:28)
To make the mounting process most efficient, it's very important that you prep your lav microphone mount before approaching your talent. The packs of The Invisible Lav Covers - Original come with everything you need to do this.
Stick your lavalier mic on the Invisible Lav Tape with the mic capsule sitting in the middle of the pre-cut window. This keeps your microphone free from sticky residue, and helps to create a space of dead air around the capsule.
When sticking your The Invisible Lav Covers - Original to the tape, ensure the bigger holes are facing out and the smaller holes are being stuck to the tape.
You're ready to go to set!
MOUNTING A LAV MIC ON THE CHEST (1:18)
For this mount, we're going to hide the lav mic straight onto the chest, in the middle of the sternum. It's perfectly safe to apply The Invisible Lav Covers directly to the skin as our super sticky Invisible Lav Tape is hypoallergenic. Using some micropore tape, you can secure the cable to the side of your talent's torso.
MOUNTING A LAV MIC IN A SHIRT 1 (2:44)
A great way to mount your lavalier microphone in a shirt is between the shirt seams amongst the buttons. For extra transparency, it's best to mount the microphone with the capsule facing out of the shirt. The choice of three different The Invisible Lav Covers - Original colours allows you to closer match your lav mic mount with your talent's costume.
MOUNTING A LAV MIC IN A SHIRT 2 (3:38)
Another way to hide your lav microphone in a shirt is by folding over the top edge of The Invisible Lav Covers - Original to encase the capsule. The pre-cut window should be big enough for you to do this without getting glue stuck to the lav capsule. Now you can place the microphone a little closer to the edge of the shirt seam, and the extra protection helps against very low winds and those pesky vocal plosives. This mount is also great when mounting in the brim of a hat.
