I was just working a wedding gig and my old Samson headset mic crapped
out. If the piano player hadn't had hers along, I would have been in
serious trouble. Time for a new and more reliable headset mic. I use
my hands a LOT when I'm doing ONS gigs, so a handheld cordless isn't
really an option for me.
I'd love recommendations from any of you about models to look at. I'm
planning to plow the funds from this wedding and some of my caller piggy
bank into a new mic, so I want something that's really good quality. It
doesn't have to be tiny and invisible, but it does need to be reliable.
If it doesn't have a belt pack that's a plus, but it seems like most of
the good-quality headset mics have belt packs. I'll deal with it if
that's the best bet. So, recommendations?
For reference, the one I was working with was a Samson Airline 77, often
referred to as the "aerobic instructor mic." It had the transmitter on
the headset, so there were no wires or belt pack, and it worked just
fine for a long time until suddenly it didn't. I would like to hear
what folks are using who rely on a headset mic for their calling gigs.
