  1. Viviana Straps

    https://www.soundfish.it/viviana-straps/ They are producing wireless belts that do look pretty similar to the ursa straps which I personally like very much. Produced in Italy. I'll write about it, once I have some of them in my hands! Oscar
  2. Rycote INV-Lite now shipping

    I measured the cs-1e it is actually a bit smaller than 19mm. 18 and a half mm it seems... I gues that's the reason why it doesn't fit well. I don't know If I want to start using tape on my new mic. But the Inv-lite super lever mechanism only does a little tightening in your case, right? I mean it's hardly visible or did I get a faulty example? thanks for sharing your thoughts! Oscar
  3. Rycote INV-Lite now shipping

    I just tried the Inv-lite 19 with Sanken CS-1e and found it not really fitting together. The Sankens diameter is a bit too small. That makes some noise when quickly turning the mik. could be fixed with some tape probably but I guess that's not the idea? tha "cam-lever clamp" mechanism seems a bit mysterious to me as it doesn't really tighten enough. Or did I get a faulty one? I gues I'll just send back mine...
  4. Small super-shield with 416?

    Did you see the new "416" windshield? http://mymic.rycote.com/products/windshield-kit-416/ I was wondering if there's more difference then have the nice, even "rf shielded" right-angle xlr connector and some colour difference compared to a WS3-Kit... Anyone knows about it?

  6. Using Neumann Kmr81i in a Rycote WS3 Kit ?

    well, I see there's a point in your questions. It's some while ago when I was working with the oldest crappiest mixers from university that I actualy missed sensitivity and suffered from pre-amp noise. but there are siuations sometime when it could be more output. I could imagine making use in the situation also where you want to use dynamic mics instead of condenser or to use the sounddevices gain-level knobs on "low" settings and therby gain a little bit of signal-noise ratio. even if it's just 3db. well I guess I should make more tests and open a new topic. my interest for the fethead was based on the following article : http://fieldrecording.de/2014/09/19/review-triton-audio-fethead-fethead-phantom-in-line-preamp/ (german only, sorry)
  7. Using Neumann Kmr81i in a Rycote WS3 Kit ?

    First of all, thanks for your replies. I've never used Panamic. i guess it's more common in USA... But I'll try the WS3 Combo with the original suspension Version... by the way, have you guys ever thought of or felt need for a 18db boost? check this: http://www.tritonaudio.com/index.php?option=com_simpleshop&Itemid=30&cmd=product&product=10&catName=Pro%20Audio I am just checking one. having been skeptic of course... So far my research has seen that it really does boost around 18dB. But of course there's also noise added. But it seems the ratio is okay. so you gain a little... and on weak preamps you gain more of course then with really good ones. Seems that on sounddevices for example it makes sense... Neumann miks having more output than Sennheiser MKH's sound exciting doesn't it? If theres interest I can post more on this...
  8. Using Neumann Kmr81i in a Rycote WS3 Kit ?

    First read, then write! ...;-) I found an answer myself in another thread. not very precise but it seems to be working: A picture to illustrate how it looks would be nice. What does panamic suspension mean? a modified rycote suspension or kind of a floater?
  9. Hello everybody! Does anyone have experience if it fits? I live in Germany/ Berlin. Here Kortwich offers these nice short XLR ends... I haven't tried it myself so I thought maybe someone already has experience? THX Oscar
