Maybe there is a mic you can use that is directional. I am serious. I thought the bongos made for an excellent effect! Hollywood Boulevard is a zoo, it has a carnival atmosphere. This is what they have been reduced to. When you go to the carnival, you expect.....carnies. Getting ripped off for a stuffed toy is part of the experience. You don't complain, you get into the spirit of the thing. Very impressed with your work!
