Sennheiser MKH 60
Boom pole array
It appears to be the time for tradesmen and work around here. Today it was the house in which we are staying which is having a new retaining wall put in. The two gentlemen were busy sawing up very hefty beams of wood to use as the main support posts. Again being distracted from work by loud power tools I thought it a better use of the time to record said power tools than to bemoan them preventing me from hearing the nice quiet local bird sounds I was trying to catalogue. I had a brief chat to the two of them and then sampled a circular saw, plain and two electric drills. I even remembered to write down what brand they were so I could be unnecessarily specific when I catalogue them. I am sure someone somewhere will appreciate that they know what brand of power saw I recorded. Maybe I can start advertising power tools on the webpage.
