Getting rid of

A DP I've worked with asked me about a problem he's been having with his lavs (Tram). He sometimes has trouble with certain actresses who make sort of a hiss or a whistle when they say a word with the letter "S" in it. He asked if there's any kind of filter he could use during the acquisition stage to get rid of the problem. He's already familiar with a "d-esser" filter in post. I don't think either of the low-cut filters on his SD302 mixer would help, and suggested he experiment with mic placement. He seemed to think that the lavs were two large to be placed in the hair. Is there another solution that I'm not thinking of?

I'd like to hear this answer also... I've had 3 trams and I just accepted that as a side effect of the super-detailed top-end.

I've tried an MKE2 and an 899 in direct comparison with my trams and it's a tough call. I like the wide-open sound of the trams compared to the other two lavs... but the other one's didn't have the sizzles either.

I think few lavs mix with a gun/hyper so good as the trams, but that damn top is a double-edged sword.
