There is nothing more aggravating than a lavalier microphone that keeps sliding down into the shot by poking out of the neck tie. Hide-A-Mic SILI-PADS are here to help and do so in an elegant fashion. These simple sticky squares are perfect for keeping wiring accessories right where you put them!
The main goal of any adhesive is to be silent, transparent, and sticky as hell. These Hide-A-Mic SILI-PADS are the trifecta and do all three. This is a lifesaver for us, as in Production Sound we rarely get second takes. If we are always shooting the rehearsals and not getting additional takes, we need to ensure that the lavalieres stay put exactly where we place them.
PICK IT, STICK IT!
I recommend tearing the perforations into rows of 4. This is a perfect number to have with you at any moment. Having more means the possibility of losing all of them if you put your kit down and forget to pick it back up! You will need to keep the plastic barrier on the cutouts to ensure you don’t waste any adhesive if it sticks to the inside of your pockets or Hip Pack. These are for the really tough jobs. Because of that, they are a little more pricier than most of the adhesives on the market.
Sometimes you are in a pinch and don’t have time to go to a dedicated production sound store, you can pick up similar stickies to the SILI-PADS, called ZOTS. They are NOT the same but come in small, large, and 3D sizes which can be beneficial if you need a bigger sized adhesive.
