Use moleskin as a windscreen?

Hi,

I've heard of guys using moleskin over a Tram for example as a windscreen. Can someone post a picture example of how this is done? I keep having to do outside shoots in windy situations and the Tram windscreen doesn't always cut it.

Thanks!
John

I use moleskin exclusively for all of my lavaliere mic apps. It works great to hide mics under clothing, a lot stickier than g tape and can be used as a windscreen. You simply cut a small piece,put it over the mic and attach it underneath shirt or undershirt. If it sounds too muffled, simply make a little "gap" when attaching to the garment.

Also, try Undercovers and Overcovers by Rycote. Available through trew audio and the like. Come in packs of 18. Undercovers are double side sticky mounts and overcovers are furry windscreen type covers for most lavs.

Cool, thanks for the info guys. I knew some guys used it for windscreens, but was afraid of the muffle problem. I always keep it on hand for pesky wardrobe problems anyhow.

Thanks again!
J
