  1. Rycote Mic Protector case

    Yes, the protector cases are a perfect "snug" fit for the Baseball
  2. Rycote Mic Protector case

    We’re offering the plastic tubes in a pack of 3, to be sold on their own too. These tubes come with loads of foam inners to allow different mic lengths. Not sure of the US list, but they’ll be £13.00 for the pack of 3. Rigid case options for both the Modular & Softies are something we’re looking at. The Mic Protector case structure would work, it’s just whether the handle or boom adaptors stay outside of the case or not. All suggestions warmly welcomed...

    Very good points. Truth be told, we only started this project because we needed cases ourselves for the demo mics we take to trade shows. Cheers, Simon

    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

    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).

    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
