Recording hat
« on: March 28, 2014, 03:20:39 AM »
I saw a thread that had a link for a hat that had holes for small omnis. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Need to find this thing and am having trouble finding it.

This? Has lots of holes, but not for mics to stick through, just acoustically transparent:

I use the Kangol. Probably more versatile than the Sound Pro's hat. Looks like the SP hat is custom for their mics.

The Kangol works for all of my mics (see my sig). I just need to be mildly creative to mount them.

+3 on the Kangol 504.  That's what a whole bunch of us use.  No, I'm not Sam Jackson or LL Cool J but it works ... and works well.

The Ventair is legendary , but this might be what the OP was asking about - the ball cap with holes near the top for mini omni mics to stick out through.

Take a $5 hat, without even a logo for God's sake, poke a couple of holes in, and I assume add grommets...and voila - $45. ;D

The Sound Pro's hat blows. The Kangol rules!

First the Sound Pro's looks stupid with the mics sticking out and is not stealthy. Second the grommets on mine almost immediately came loose from the material. Third and perhaps most critical, when you want to use omnis, you are not using your head as a baffle with the Sound Pro's so the recording won't sound nearly as good as it would if you used the Kangol. The Kangol material is acoustically transparent (at least to my ears), so you don't need to worry about the mics being covered by material.

I use a modified version of this.  I wear it everywhere I go so no one ever gives me a second glance.  My cap reads $T3LTH.  with the gold letters... I blend right in.

I had you pegged for this model hat, Ben Turnbull... Sure it wasn't this one?
