britney's mic

Postby N_2_U » 01 Dec 2011, 04:18

finally purchased a brand new headset! But i was wondering is the one she wears during her DWAD tour different than the one she has now?? I like the DWAD tour one but can't find that version anywhere. ImageImage Do u think the old one was made just for her?

It's the exact same model. Both were modified to have the boom sit on a more traditional but custom headband (over the ear). Normally this is done by (carefully) using your hands to bend/mold the boom from the cm-311 after it's been taken apart from the stock headband, then using electrical tape to "mate" the headband and molded boom together. You can see the tape in the closeup of the FFT shot you posted. Pretty homemade if you ask me, but most people in the audience can't notice especially with the performer's hair covering the modification. In the case of the DWAD mic, all the headset mics (they had about four or so made) were dipped in rubber after this attachment... I think that was so that all mics were ready for the last number which had "rain" in the show hehe. They definitely spent more time working on the headsets for DWAD vs any other Britney tour. The good news is, you can do it yourself. The bad news is, I'm pretty sure it voids any warranty! lol. Here's a backstage pic from the DWAD show, I think it was taken in Chicago by someone from Crown :)

Sounds good :) did you purchase a wireless system to go along with it? Is this something you will be using for live performances? Curious :)

Yeah - she's always had the "same" mic. Some sound company interviewed the sound guy on the Circus tour and he stated that she's had the same mic since the BOMT days.
