For those who notice these things, the mic Andy uses for his video show rig is a Countryman. These mics are really quite remarkable in terms of quality. They also are very discrete, hooking over the ear and pointing towards the mouth. As you can imagine, in the noisy show environment this really cuts down on the background noise. These mics are often used for stage performers who don't want to hold a mic or have a large strap-on getting in the way.
We take a quick look at a couple of the new models, but also we get some interesting applications of Countryman mics from Bill Laumiester.
