  1. That's what I have now. It works pretty well, but I recently had some whistling from the wind through the suspension of the Rycote mount, and the string with toggle on the furry that goes with the BBG has a habit of getting loose and banging against things and making noise. Last but not least, the the mic tends to get rotated/moved, and sometimes things snag the cable. In short, it works for blocking the wind most of the time but is fiddly. I hate fur. It's always getting caught in the zipper of whatever bag I put it in, unless I take it off the basket and turn it inside out but then it's a fe
  2. Thanks for the reply! You're right, the fur is extra. I was assuming that the cyclone was as effective without fur as the regular stuff was with fur - this seems to be what Rycote is saying, is it what you have seen as well? If so I can accept paying more for the fur if I decide if I need it. I'm in the US, and the WS 3 XLR-5F kit, 086069 is $629 and the Stereo Cyclone 089130 is $649, without fur.

  3. Hi All - I'm looking at getting a blimp specifically for the Audio Technica BP4025, and Rycote suggests either the WS 3 modular windshield or the Cyclone medium. They're $20 apart in price. The WS 3 is smaller and probably lighter, but does the cyclone have an advantage wind-wise? Anyone have experience with both? Thanks!
  4. When I search for CMS-50 I get four threads: The first is this one, and discusses mainly price: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/33056-sanken-cms-50-a-very-compact-mid-side-shotgun-for-us1750-coming-this-june Chucklebeans does state it’s easy to carry. Second is this one, with a cross reference to the first thread: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/29531-ms-mic-for-documentaries Third is this one, which ends with a comment about it being on a boat to the US: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/33526-sanken-reveals-a-new-short-stereo-sh
  5. Are there any reviews of this mic? I've looked but so far haven't found anything.
  6. Just saw that Full Compass has this mic for $895, but I have yet to find a review anywhere.
  7. So Conleec, you've had it for a while now, How's it working for you? I was set to get the OR-270, but you're situation is similar to mine, so now I'm wondering about K-tec... Thanks! Steve
