Hey nathan, do you have the heavy duty or lightweight cable on your CMC-8's? I think my cable me just be too stiff because if I move my head even slightly, it jiggles the microphones. Makes noise on the recording too :(

While I haven't seen the thick cable, I'm pretty certain that I have the lightweight cable. I can't imagine it gets much thinner.

I have the heavyweight cable and I think that's the problem. It's too stiff and thick, and pushes on the mics too much when moved. I've seen the lightweight cable and it's much thinner.

Gaffer tape won't leave residue, is easily removed and can be torn into fairly precise size strips. If you don't want to drop $15 for a roll of gaff tape, very small zip cables work great for me. They sell those at the Dollar Tree as well. The Dollar Tree...broke ass tapers superstore...

edit:

Those are 4" zip cables.

You know, looking at those mics you could probably tuck them on-top of your ears, like a pencil, no clip required?



I do that with some omnis I made.

- What's this knob do?

I haven't tried that at a show but I've experimented at home. They'll stay put as long as you sit still but one good tug at the cables and they're easily yanked down.

just grow some dreads and clip them to that.
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
