- For Lavalier Mics Under Clothing
- Minimize Clothing Rustle and Wind Noise
- Includes Stickies to Affix to Your Lav
The Rycote Undercover disc is a disposable mount and windshield used for mounting lavalier microphones underneath clothing. Included are ten black, ten grey, and ten white discs (30 total). The discs are doublecoated with a peel-off adhesive and a soft woven material. The adhesive is peeled onto clothing, providing a tacky mounting surface for lavalier microphones. The woven fabric disc is placed over the microphone and adhesive surface, sandwiching the microphone, and eliminating structure and rustling noise caused by movement of clothing, cables, etc.

Assuming shooting a wedding outdoors on a breezy day using Senn with ME2 lav - would better sound be found with Rycote undercover, or with a fuzzy windjammer outside the clothing?
I've used the ME2 extensively, but mainly indoors. From my outdoor use experience while riding a bicycle, I would expect the windjammer to be better if there's more than mild winds. I've use the fuzzy inside clothing to hide it (although it is bulky) while bike riding and it is notably better when the winds (or riding speed) is over 5-10 mph. If it's mild winds only, say less than 5 mph, likely the rycote will work but you'd need to test it. My Rycote experience has been variable and have had some clothing and rustling noise -- care is needed in its use for best results. I'm an audio enthusiast, but not an audio expert. Hope this helps.

What size are these pads? Do they work with a Sennheiser me2 lav?
They are the size of your thumb fingernail. They have stick on both sides.I prefer DrScholl's Moleskin Plus Paddidng (UPC14800) 3 strips 4 5/8 x 3 3/8 pads. You may cut them to whatever size you need and stick them over the mike onto the skin. The soft padding top prevents clothing noise. (You can buy them at most drug stores and markets for under $10.)
