A friend is doing ENG-type live coverage of E3 in LA next month. He's not a pro
yet. He has a Sennheiser wireless mic system with the plug-on transmitter. He's
trying to decide what mic he should use within his budget. The convention floor
will be very noisy. His budget is $200, which rules out NTG-2, MKH416, and the like.
Shure VP64 (omni, lightweight)
Sennheiser MD 46 (fits the bill; anyone here tried one?)
Shure SM58 (speaks for itself)
Anything else he should consider?
If he gets to the floor and finds that nothing he has works, he's going to try
to rent an NTG-2 locally. Can you recommend a good mic rental outfit in LA?
