  1. Sorry Chris, this one slipped through... here are the details of the Baseball Windjammer Description: Baseball Windjammer Order Code: 055345
  2. Hi Chris, I'll let you know the correct Windjammer next week. Cheers,Simon
  3.

  4. Hi Denzil, sorry to hear that - shoot me a quick email to simon at rycote.com Cheers, Simon Please drop me a line Ken
  5. If you find them, let me know
  6. Thanks. A short pile black fur Windjammer will be added to the price list Chris - cheers, Simon
  7. Sorry about that Glen - if you've still got them email me directly with Simon at rycote.com
  8. The Lyres are relatively simple in construction, and made from a material called Hytrel that shouldn't stress fracture or break, even when abused. That said, if you get one that does fail - please let me know as I'd want to see it. We make quite a few of them, and manufacturing does occasionally spew out weird parts with crystalline parts. We'd swap that out immediately if that happened. Cheers, Simon
  9. Yes, we've had some of the beta-testers who've added a Windjammer to give additional protection. They used 5cm Smoothie Windjammers from memory. That said - for the most part though, the testers only used the Baseball for interiors and it stayed on the mics (dominated mainly by DPA4018C, MKH 50, MKH8050 & Schoeps CMC's).
  10. We've started in black (very creative of us) but to make different colours isn't too difficult if there's a demand. Mike - The Baseball is only 75mm (3") diameter, so performs much less than the larger Super-Softie in terms of wind reduction. It's really as a step up from a regular foam gag, but below that of say the BBG windshield to reduce the "swoosh" from fast re-cue's. The structure is an open cell foam, exactly the same as in the Super & Classic-Softies, with a fine version of the fleece from our original Hi Wind Covers. The Baseball is finished off with a very fine rubber seal on the back - which is smaller than the Softie end cap, and therefore less likely to cause any reflections. Cheers, Simon
  11. Hi Mike, We're just waiting for the parts to arrive, so we should be shipping by the end of January. PM at simon@rycote.com and I'll let you know once they're heading out the door. Cheers, Simon
  12. If you're going to use the MiniCMIT with a Softie, the 12cm Classic-Softie (19/22) & the INV-7 HG MkIII goes well with it. The mount needs to clip partially onto regular XLR, rather than a short version.
  13. For the moment yes. The new clamp & lever parts will arrive early in 2017 The difference is the rear clamp/lever, as the DPA 4017b or c are 19mm rather than 21mm for the Schoeps. The 4017 version will also work well with the 4018, 8060 & CS-1.
  14. The MiniCMIT will fit into the Cyclone, Small & a new MiniCMIT Modular kit we've got coming too - same size as the WS1, just over 300g excluding the mic.
