hi,

just about to invest in the Sennheiser EW 100ENG G2 package and am looking for a mic that i can use in conjunction with the plug on transmitter.

it will be used for weddings in situations such as, speeches (Placed on the table) also used as a presenter mic for othe jobs??

Can't be phantom powered as the plug on transmitter unit does not supply the power.

any suggestions??

Budget of about £100-£200

Your G2 will come with an excellent omni lav mic, so why not use that at the top table? I do - on a short black wire that holds it maybe 12'' into the air.

The beauty of an omni is that should they wander off they'll still be picked up. I get the MC to move it between speakers in the applause, or I rush forward to do so. Excellent sound - but not so good if they use the location's mic and PA system. Still, a shotgun will suffer under those circumstances too.

the nice thing about having the skp transmitter is that you can send a feed of the hotel's mic straight the camera.

My normal set up is to find the received for the hotel's mic or the point where it goes into the wall (if it's wired) and insert a split off to my transmitter.

The downside is that you are relying on the hotel's mic being decent (not always the case).

The perfect scenario is when the hotel mic is a wireless sennheiser from the g2 range. Get a hold of it before the speeches. Tune to it's frequency and check the levels. Lovely.

I've often used a wireless sen omni in the way Tom describes - it's worked every time. A bit of common sense when placing it works wonders.

Another thing might be to attatch it to the short mobile table stand that the Hotel might have - so long as the MC moves the mic between speakers (Ias they have on a few weddings I've been at)

For what you describe the K6 series is the ideal solution - a little over your budget, but hopefully not too much.

It's very flexible and you can change heads for almost any situation.
