Which lavelier microphone are you using with your wireless setup?

I am currently in the market for a new wireless microphone system. I will most likely buy the Audio-Technica ATW-18XX dual channel receiver with two transmitters and the 899 lavalier microphones. Although some people say those 899 lavaliers are pretty good, I am eager to find out which wireless microphones you are using and what you like/dislike.

I have worked with Sanken and I absolutely loved the sound they produce. I also read good things about Countryman and more expensive Sennheisers.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

I have a Countryman B3. The Sanken was out of my price range at the time. I've used it for a number of interviews, and have a series in 2010 I'll be using it for. Very pleased with it.

I use Trams, with the XLR TR79 Power Supply you can also hard wire them as well as use them on the wireless system.

Make sure you can get your lavalier pins configured for the AT system (not all mkes work with the AT System).

I have a combination of Voice Technology 506, Trams and Sankens. All sound a little different and have different clips etc. All work well although I found the clips for the Trams and VT's better than the Sankens. Cost wise the VT and Trams are about the same. Sanken is more expensive. What i would do is ask the rental companies in your area what they use as we often have to supplement what we own with rental gear and it is nice if it is compatible.

Personally, I'm packin' the Sennheiser MKE-2 Gold, Countryman B6, Sanken COS-11d and the PinMic. Each have their own positives and negatives. I'm hopin' the PinMic makes a come back because of its usefulness in scenes with a lot of body movement. A buddy of mine just used one on this little web show Continental Mills - Bread Machine Mix Handling Tips
