MOUNTING A SENNHEISER ME 2 LAVALIER MICROPHONE (G3) IN CLOTHING OR COSTUMES AND ON THE BODY HAS JUST BECOME MUCH EASIER.
The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser ME 2 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 cleaner sound recordings. This Lav Concealer can also be used with the Tascam TM-10L (DR-10L).
NB:It’s important to note that this Lav Concealer is for the older style ME 2 and ME 2-US lav mic (Sennheiser G2/G3), in which you are able to remove the metal pop-shield. It is designed for use without this metal pop-shield. If you have a newer style ME 2-II (Sennheiser G3/G4/AVX/XSWD with permanently fixed pop-shield), then you can find the correct Lav Concealer here.
This innovative Sennheiser ME 2 lavalier mount fits the 5.8mm capsule perfectly and, along with making hiding the mic easier, also protects it from a build up of glue residue which can result from repeatedly attaching tape directly to the lavalier mic. The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser ME 2 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 any worry. It also includes a newly designed metal clothing clip and two fabric guards, which can be applied in any configuration to suit the mounting style.
It can also be sewn into costumes by the costume department for daily repeated use.
The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser ME 2 Features:
CREATES SPACE: Keeps material away from the Sennheiser ME 2 microphone capsule in tight spaces under or in clothing, protecting the mic from friction noise and vibrations; 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 mic capsule.
COLOUR OPTIONS: Available in Matte Black or Matte White finish. The matte finish is non-reflective for extra discretion.
NEW WIRE FABRIC GUARD: The newly designed, removable wire fabric guard keeps clothing/fabric from touching the mic capsule. The combination of both wire and rubber materials acts as excellent friction absorption, cutting out any transmission of friction to the mic capsule.
CLIP, TAPE OR SEWING MOUNTING OPTIONS: Provides many options for mounting Sennheiser ME 2 lavalier 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. Both the black and white versions don't use any 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 is able to absorb more vibrations than harder materials (eg. plastic), preventing unnecessary noise from ever reaching the mic capsule. The Lav Concealer for Sennheiser ME 2 includes a newly designed 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 mic 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.
NB:It’s important to note that this Lav Concealer is for the older style ME 2 and ME 2-US lav mic (Included with Sennheiser G2/G3 wireless systems), featuring a removable metal pop-shield. It is designed for use without this metal pop-shield. If you have a newer style ME 2-II (Sennheiser G3/G4/AVX/XSWD with permanently fixed pop-shield), then you can find the correct Lav Concealer here.
