Any recomendations for modest cost mobile head mikes, with an on off switch for use with barn dance calling?
Thanks
FloraG.

Maplins do one, made by the brand Yoga. It's about 20 quid I think. It'd do for a mediumish room, but wouldn't do for a church hall or anything though.

Flora - plenty of makes of radio mic/headset out there at all prices. From personal experience can I recommend that you spend as much as you can reasonably afford to get the best one you can.

Cheap ones will have a smaller range of frequencies to choose from. "Hallo Golf Echo Papa - fare for you at 28 Lansdown Crescent" is not a dance step... Cheap ones will not have a decent range. Cheap ones tend to pack up for no accountable reason and will have to be replaced.

You can be lucky - I wasn't!

UHF. Shure, not sure of model. Reliable and it works. VHF gave us interference problems in both directions. If you see a cheapie and it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

By the way, most headsets shouldn't be worn in front of the mouth, but to one side.

Sennheiser EW100 G2. UHF, lots of channels to choose from (including the few that will continue to be legal unlicensed in the UK in the future) never let us down, sounds good - but a bit expensive.

UHF mics are generally better and more interference-proof, if only because they are less common so you are less likely to have another in the vicinity.

Thanks so far. Treewind - just the sort of detail I need. Any more still welcome.

we used to have a sound man - came with us to gigs and supplied everything. He had worked in the Dockyard - and 40 years later the dreaded aspestosis got him. We inherited his basic stuff but not his mobile mikes.

I shall start looking on the web for your suggestions.

This is similar to the one we use (the updated version) It works well is clear and natural and used for some years by our caller.

"Line 6" moved into 'state of the art' digital wireless guitar and vocal mic products a few years ago.

scroll down page to "Vocal Wireless" and check out headset mic range...
