Hello Margit,

if you have the money I like the TRAM (TR 50). You might have to buy a
special windshield with it. I usually use lavalier mics only when I
want to concentrate on one speaker and/or if the speaker moves around
a lot (with a radio transmitter). If you plan to record several
speakers at at time you might want to bring other microphones as well.

All the best,
