Body mounting or clipping a Sennheiser MKE 2 lavalier microphone to clothing or costumes has just become much easier.
The Lav Concealer for the Sennheiser MKE 2 is a soft, pliable mount that covers many different mounting options, moulding itself to any surface it is attached to. Because of its soft rubber material, it also acts as a shock mount, protecting the mic capsule from vibration and absorbing friction noise to give you clearer sound recordings.
Also available in a 6-pack with 3 x black and 3 x white Lav Concealers
This innovative Sennheiser MKE2 lav mount fits the capsule perfectly and, along with making hiding the mic easier, protects it from a build up of glue which can result from repeatedly attaching tape directly to the mic. The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser MKE2 can be attached directly to skin or clothing using our Lav Concealer Tape. The tape is very strong, hypoallergenic and easy to apply, for mounting on fabric or skin without worry. It also includes a metal clothing clip and a fabric guard, which can be applied in any configuration you like, depending on the mounting style.
It can also be sewed into costumes by the costume department for daily repeated use.
The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser MKE2 Features:
CREATES SPACE: Keeps material away from the Sennheiser MKE2 Lavalier capsule in tight spaces under or in clothing, protecting the mic from friction noise and vibrations and making your recordings sound cleaner.
SHOCK ABSORBING: The moulded rubber concealer is made for excellent vibration and friction absorption, while the metal clothing clip and fabric guard prevent the transmission of vibration through the concealer to the microphone.
COLOUR OPTIONS: Available in Matt Black or Matt White finish. The matt finish is non-reflective for discrete hiding.
WIRE FABRIC GUARD: The removable wire fabric guard keeps fabric from touching the capsule. The combination of wire and rubber materials acts as excellent friction absorpsion, cutting any transmission of friction to the mic capsule.
CLIP, TAPE OR SEWING MOUNTING OPTIONS: Provides many options for mounting Sennheiser MKE2 lav mics on talent easily, effectively and quickly, many times under high pressure on sets.
ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND: The Lav Concealer is made from 100% natural rubber which is biodegradable and kind to the environment. The black and white versions don't make use of harmful chemical compounds to achieve the colouring.
The natural rubber used in manufacturing The Lav Concealer is biodegradable, which the environment will thank you for. In terms of clarity, using a soft, pliable rubber means it absorbs more vibrations than harder materials (eg. plastic), preventing unnecessary noise from ever reaching the capsule. The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser MKE2 Lav includes a fabric guard and a clothing clip, made of sprung metal. These attach to the concealer in tiny holes on the front and back. Having two different materials operating in unison helps prevent friction or vibrations from being transferred from one to the other, and eventually to the capsule.
It moulds to your mounting style: The fabric guard and clothing clip are removable and you can mount them on the front or back of the lav concealer to lift the fabric off the entire concealer or to attach it quickly and neatly to clothing seams.
