I’ve always been a big advocate for using lavaliere microphones. I find them convenient, easy to use and they always produce great sound. One thing I’ve never really liked is having them in shot.
Over the years I’ve tried different ways to hide them, including a cheap DIY way using velcro (see the video I made here), but it seems that I now have found my solution.
I got in a set of Rode Invisilavs (the 3 pack). They’re essentially a piece of moulded rubber, which allows for you to insert 2 lav mics and connect it to your skin under your shirt. It works great.
As you can see in the video above you can’t see the invisilav when you’ve got it on, something I love. The tape that comes with it sticks fantastically, but it absolutely sucks trying to get it on! I’d recommend getting some cheap wig tape to stick it on, works better and is much easier to get it on and off.
One more thing, the Sennheiser G3 Lav mics which I and a lot of others use does fit with the invisilav. A tight squeeze, but fantastic news!
