Wearing a Kangol
« on: August 19, 2019, 08:13:42 AM »
I recently got a Kangol.  It's a great looking and very comfortable hat that I will likely wear often, and not just when I'm taping.

From what I can tell from various rig setup pictures, it seems that tapers typically wear it in its conventional form with the bill in front.  I taped a show last weekend for the first time wearing the Kangol with the mics inside it.  I decided to turn it around so the bill was in the back because it seemed like the vents on the backside were opened up more compared to the front where the top of the hat flattens out around the bill -- thinking that by wearing it backwards meant the sound didn't have as much material to go through to get to the mics.  Admittedly, I haven't yet tried wearing it the other way and perhaps I'm overthinking this.  I am very satisfied with the result I got, and of course, that's really what counts the most.  But I still want to ask how others wear it while taping and if they have ever noticed a difference.

I collected a number of pictures that music recorders have sent me of their microphone disguises. From what’s been shared with me and what I have been able to share with peers who manage talent we all agree that the disguise is now a dead give away that a unauthorized recording is likely being made. All someone needs to do is to stand directly behind the person wearing the hat and they can confirm the activity.

You're a fucking moron.

Maybe you should focus on getting your "bar and grille" website into this millennium.

This guy is a massive, massive douche.

I’m sure the ‘talent’ you work with is all in your mind and you’re an Incel.

Maybe if you actually had talent at your club you could catch a taper.  Have you caught one yet?

Either this is true and you're a moron for letting everyone know you're onto them, or you're full of shit.  So, which is it?
