Re: Recommendations for microphones for a soccer match

"Does the WS6 softie go over the foam windscreen or directly on the microphone?"
- My Rycote Softie slips directly onto the mic. The Rode WS6 (knock-off) appears very similar. FWIW, I also have a secondary Softie Windjammer for moderate wind conditions. Smaller/lighter easier than a Zeppelin system. The Softie/Windjammer is still inadequate in strong wind though.

So you think the used Wendt is worth the additional dollars over the Behringer??"
- IMO Yes. Never cared much for Behringer gear. Second rate construction, mediocre sound and unreliable in my experience. I wouldn't consider the Behringer a EFP/ENG mixer either

Re: Recommendations for microphones for a soccer match

Behringer kit has always had a bad reputation, that sadly, is rather unfairly applied. They have upgraded their service facility worldwide, and their acquisition of Turbosound and Midas show a commitment to upping their game. For what it's worth, the quantity of Behringer equipment I have owned over the years, vs the problems I've had makes me firmly PRO Behringer. Their service record years ago was shaky - but that seems long gone, and here in Europe, 3 yr warranty is standard, and complaints mainly made by people with historic rather than contemporary memories.

For the price - around $100 - that mixer is very good value!

Re: Recommendations for microphones for a soccer match

I never said the behringer was an ENG/EFP mixer but it still has it's applications in the same way as an audio developments or similar mixer that is mounted on a cart or used in static situations.

I agree with Paul the behringer quality is very good these days and for around $100 you get a very useable and useful product.

We us their mixers all the time in broadcast and whilst not the best sonically they are ideal when you need to be mixing coms or FX mics together.
