Ingram AV has quickly grown into Newcastle and surround's premier technical production rental suppliers and as well as handling Stage, PA and lighting, they have an impressive selection of high-end DPA headset and lavalier microphones. The stresses these mics are put through week in, week out, are not to be underestimated.
Director Reed Ingram Weir shares a trick he uses to make sure they survive the rigours of everyday use on productions:
“The moment they arrive at our warehouse, every single mic with a thin gauge cable has a Bubblebee Cable Saver attached to it…”
“We have over 40 DPA Microphones Core headsets and over 30 DPA Core lavalier mics, and the Cable Saver has become a standard issue for us, as it’s resulted in zero cable failures since we started using them”
The Cable Saver
Made from a soft, yet durable black rubber, the Cable Saver adds a shock absorber to your microphone cable. This means that if you drop the transmitter or the microphone cable gets caught in something, the cable saver will act as a spring allowing for a soft fall that will relieve the strain on the cable's weak points and save your equipment from breaking.
An added benefit is that the Cable Saver reduces the cable friction noise so drastically that the noise almost disappears. That means no more scratching and rattling noises when someone accidentally touches the microphone cable.
