Los Angeles, CA (March 26, 2014)—LA-based production sound mixer Johnny Kubelka has been using his Countryman Associates B3 and B6 omnidirectional lavalier microphones in his work as the production sound mixer for The Horseman's Apprentice on RFD TV, which follows the training of horse whisperer and show host Pat Parelli.

“I currently own two B3s and two B6s,” Kubelka states, “which I use with my Lectrosonics and Shure wireless systems. There’s never any muffled sound from the cables and they are both extremely small—making them a great choice when the mic needs to remain out of sight.

He added, “If discreet and out-of-sight are key production requirements of the shoot, I’ll typically use the B6. This mic is really small—making it extremely well suited for difficult wardrobe considerations. Noisy costumes can be a real challenge in terms of capturing sound. The B6 has exceptionally low handling noise and is very rugged for something this small.”
