Mounting a DPA 4071 lavalier microphone in clothing or costumes and on the body has just become much easier.
The Lav Concealer for DPA 4071 is a soft pliable mount that covers many different mounting options, moulding itself to the surface it is attached to. Because of it's 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.
This Lav Concealer fits the DPA 4071 snugly and, along with the ease of mounting, protects the mic from a build up of glue which results from repeatedly attaching tape directly to the capsule. We have made a special Lav Concealer Tape especially for it. The LC Tape is strong, hypoallergenic and easy to apply, for mounting on fabric or skin without worry.
The Lav Concealer for DPA 4071 Features:
CREATES SPACE: Keeps material away from the DPA 4071 capsule in tight spaces under or in clothing, protecting the mic from friction noise and vibrations.
SHOCK ABSORBING: Moulded rubber compound made for excellent vibration and friction absorption, while the metal clothing clip and fabric guard prevent the transmission of vibration to the concealer.
COLOUR OPTIONS: Available in Matt Black or Matt White finish. The matt finish is non-reflective for discrete hiding.
CUSTOMISABLE CLIP: The removable and movable wire clothing clip allows you to mount in many different ways, from the front, back and top or bottom of The Lav concealer.
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.
COUNTLESS MOUNTING OPTIONS: Provides many options for mounting DPA 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 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 counterparts, preventing unnecessary noise from ever reaching the capsule. The Lav Concealer includes a clothing clip and a fabric guard, made of sprung metal. Having two different materials operating in unison also helps prevent friction or vibrations from being transferred from one to the other, and eventually to the capsule.
It moulds to your mounting style: Both the clothing clip and fabric guard are removable and you can mount them on the front, back, top-side or bottom-side of the lav concealer. For the ultimate fabric guard configuration, use tape to attach the concealer and mount the fabric guard and the clip on the top-side to lift the fabric off the entire concealer.
