Lav wind protection under clothing, which is best?
on Jul 3, 2008 at 10:03:06 pm

Hi everyone!

Down in Florida, we often have beach shoots and outdoor stuff and it gets rather windy. I was wondering if anyone had any reviews on the best wind protection for Tram TR50's under clothing. Foam always makes so much noise when you try to hide it and I've heard good things about the Rycote Furry and also the Undercover.

Anyone have some ideas to put forth? :)

Thanks in advance!

I've shot on that same windy beach and wrapped felt around that same type of mic. Works like a charm and costs you about 50 cents at a fabric shop.

I have a shoot for a doc tomorrow and have been expirmenting with the Rycote "Undercovers"; machanically, they work just like they claim; but clothing noise was still a major problem. The only thing that has worked for me (as far as hiding the mic) is using the sticky triangle method. Since I'm using Sanken COS 11x's tomorrow, I might try using the rubber mount it comes with, along with some Topstick. I'll let you know what I come up with :o)

Tie a knot in the cable just below the capsule to eliminate clothing noise. Sounds weird, but it works.
