MOUNTING A LAVALIER MICROPHONE IN CLOTHING OR COSTUMES AND ON THE BODY HAS JUST BECOME MUCH EASIER.
The Lav Concealer 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.
These innovative lav mounts fit 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 Concealers 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 newly designed metal clothing clip and fabric guards, which can be applied in any configuration you like, depending on the mounting style.
It can also be sewn into costumes by the costume department for daily repeated use.
LAV CONCEALER FEATURES
Keeps material away from the microphone capsule in tight spaces under or in clothing, protecting the mic from friction noise and vibrations; making your recordings sound cleaner.
The moulded rubber concealer is made for excellent vibration and friction absorption, while the metal clothing clip and fabric guards prevent the transmission of vibration through the concealer to the microphone capsule.
Available in Matte Black or Matte White finish. The matte finish is non-reflective for discrete hiding.
WIRE FABRIC GUARDS:
The removable wire fabric guard keeps fabric from touching the microphone capsule. The combination of wire and rubber materials acts as excellent friction absorption, cutting transmission of friction to the mic capsule.
EXTREME FABRIC GUARD:
Also included is the new Extreme Fabric Guard; it moves the point of contact between the fabric and the guard, to a more central position over the body of the Lav Concealer . This can be used where the subject is wearing clothing which is made from a particularly coarse or noisy material. Both fabric guards can be used together, in lieu of the clothing clip, if the situation calls for it.
CLIP, TAPE OR SEWING MOUNTING OPTIONS:
Provides many options for mounting lavalier mics on talent easily, effectively and quickly, many times under high pressure on sets.
The Lav Concealer is made from 100% natural rubber, which is biodegradable and kind to the environment. 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 absorbs more vibrations than harder materials (eg. plastic), preventing unnecessary noise from ever reaching the microphone capsule. The Lav Concealer includes two fabric guards 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: Both the clothing clip and fabric guards 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 Extreme fabric guard on the top-side of the Lav Concealer, with the regular fabric guard on the bottom, to lift the fabric off the entire concealer.
