Palos Heights, IL (February 11, 2015)—Dave Jousma, coordinator of audio visual services at Trinity Christian College, in the Chicago suburbs, makes use of Countryman B6 omnidirectional lavalier microphones for documentary production.
Jousma ‘s background also includes documentary production for the television news magazine Primary Focus as well as Terra Nova Films. “We’ve become quite fond of our Countryman B6 microphones here at Trinity Christian College,” he says. “We’ve been using Countryman mics for a good 15 years and we consistently achieve excellent audio quality without the visual distraction that many larger microphones would create.
“First and foremost with any microphone is its audio quality and, in this regard, the E6 is wonderful; it’s very open sounding. I particularly like the ability to change the sound with the protective caps. The ‘Bright’ and ‘Very Bright’ caps provide additional sibilance for voice intelligibility—making it easy to get just the right sound from the subjects.”
He continues, “Equally important, the B6’s low-profile design is absolutely essential in this type of production work. The microphone’s small size makes it very easy to hide and the ability to position the mic via the lav clip, inside the collar with the vampire clip, on the chest with surgical tape, or through a button hole makes this microphone incredibly versatile.”
