Any ideas for a mic with a cowl? Which ones will pick up?


Trying to find a good mic for my voice modulator for my doj suit. Hard part is hiding it in my cowl and still being able to pick up my voice. I have seen some people say tape it to lower cheek? Anyone have any suggestions for a mic that works and a location on the face emoticon?

That's a tough nut to crack without a decent amount of money.
Your best best is a throat mic. It'll be out of sight and fit into a better space in your cowl.
Unfortunately the cheapest you'd get one for is like $30 and really if you want good sound you're looking at upwards of $80 or $100.

If you want to try and do things cheaply you could try and get yourself a small lavalier (lapel) mic and strip the pop filter off it, but fitting it somewhere where it can pick up and won't be visible is going to be tough; especially because if it contacts the cowl at all it's going to pick up all of the flexing and rubbing whenever the cowl moves at all.

Ok so I actually ended up getting a Batman voice modulator kit from hytechtoys. I do not however use the microphone that came with it. I did just as you suggest in getting a lapel, running it up my cowl and rests next to my nose and cannot be seen. It works really well

i confirm about this solution. the modulation sounds real good. see for yourself:



i'm really happy with it. the wife cant hear "do you bleed" anymore...

questions, now:

the kit comes with a volume control adapter which consist in a potentiometer with [sign in to see URL] stereo jacks. it's a cheap one, the resistance going from 0 to 100 instantly when turning the knob. anyone here who knows about a quality VCA?

i'm using a lapel mic which work fine but i'd prefer a throat mic, any models you guys could recommend?
