“Thunder & lightning, very very BZZZZaargh”

Last week a thunderstorm went over Southern Finland – and without much further thinking I ran outside with a mic boom in my hands, only to remember a short while afterwards it was really a bad idea, as the boom stand was metallic, as was the mic… and we have no lightning conductor in our house – well, effectively I was that for short while – so I decided to continue with only the internal mics of a Zoom H4n. Not an obvious choice, but I didn’t want to soak my fake foam head made for OKM ortophonic microphones, and the OKM mics themselves.

So here you are, a nice August thunder in the countryside: Last week a thunderstorm went over Southern Finland - and without much further thinking I ran outside with a mic boom in my hands, only to remember a short while afterwards it was really a bad idea, as the boom stand was metallic, as was the mic... and we have no lightning conductor in our house - well, effectively I was that for short while - so I decided to continue with only the internal mics of a Zoom H4n.
