This question is for the same show mentioned in this topic.
I have an acoustic guitar that needs to be mic'ed wireless-ly. The actor playing the guitar walks all over the stage, and the guitar has no pickup. I am currently using a Shure SLX1 beltback with a lavaliere mic. I'm not sure what model the mic is, but the mic head is flat and square-shaped, with a hole on one side. I also have a couple DAO 4061 lavs, if those would work better. Currently, the mic is located a half inch away from the fretboard, about half way between the edge of the sound hole and the edge of the body. It was initially located closer to the sound hole, but the actors were worried about hitting it while playing.
I realize my setup is not ideal. However, I am wondering if there is a better place for me to position the mic head to get a better sound. I am sending the guitar through the stage monitors, so I am also interested in getting the loudest sound possible from the guitar (so the mic doesn't need to be as hot, to reduce the risk of feedback).
If there are better wireless solutions than lavaliere mics, I am open to suggestions. I probably won't get to use them for this year, but I am making a wish list of things to get for next year.
