Thread Name: Omnidirection microphone for session
Subject: RE: Omnidirection microphone for session
I once saw an interesting mic. At an accordion festival, many old timers were either leery of being near the mic, or 'hogged' it. Both attitudes made the sound tech guys job difficult.

At the front of the stage was a construction of perspex, with seemed like some 'boundary layer mounted' mic elements. The box was under a metre high, about 2-3 hand-spans deep and about a metre or so wide. the side were angled out wards to reflect sound into and towards the centre of the box. Many players were not even aware that this gadget WAS a mic...
