THOSE AMAZING MIKES & CABLES

Ever wondered why singers still use cabled up microphones instead of wireless ones, clipped on to their shirts or held in the hand?

I suppose it has to be some technical reason, but I got nervous every time one of them starts loosening the screw to adjust the height of the mike or to remove it from the stand, or when they move around the stage. What if the screw is too tight, or the cable tangled up somewhere! Sometimes I wondered if these "classic" mikes give singers stage comfort and security - like Pavarotti's handkerchief! Maybe I'll ask one of them some day.

 

 

"Is this thing long enough for tall singers?"

 

Cable follows leg line, and is neatly coiled up on the floor. Very seamenslike, I must say!

 

"Good thing they let us wear jeans for this cable work"

 

"This is how it's done, Robertino"

 

"You've got to use both hands"

 

"Gimme that mike!"

 

"Go ahead, take it, Katja"

 

"Can't we have wireless mikes nowadays?"

"Good to see these are still around!"

 

Some people can make an art out of holding the mike - once it's in their hands 

 

Hands and mikes 

 

When you put your heart into singing it doesn't matter where the mike is
