UPDATE: Just wanted to set the record straight on this one. I swapped out my WS-1 for the non ZLM one, so the lyres are now stiffer and it now works fine. I now think that the funny ringing might have been some weird combination of my boom pole, the lyres and the basket all being in sympathetic resonance. I would like to say that the 8060 WS-1 combo is really fantastic. The basket is just a great size, and the mic is basically just like a 416 but nice and short and with a better wider sweet spot. I tested the WS-1 fur in high wind the other day and it works great. I'm very happy. I would say however that I wouldn't but the ZLM version. It's unnecessary as you can fit a short XLR in a normal kit just fine. Con box is not worth the money. Cheers Chris 'So I received my Rycote kit 1 MZL basket for my new 8060 and just thought I'd make an observation. I know this has been mentioned before but just wanted an opinion. So, with the basket removed, there is almost no handling noise. With the basket on, there is an awful amount of low frequency handling noise. If you flick the basket, and watch carefully you can see it ringing like a bell. This is clearly amplifying the handling noise. All this indicates that the lyres work well, but the basket is the problem....... I imagine this goes away once you add the fur, but I just wondered if anyone had a trick for dampening the basket a little? What I'm going to try tomorrow is to buy one of those stick on car deadening panels and cut a thin strip off it, then stick it inside in a kind of spiral running inside the basket. I'll let you know how it goes obvs.... maybe this could be something which Rycote could 'build in' in future versions.... PS. I know you can remove the handling noise with LF cuts, and that if I were any good as a sound recordist, I wouldn't have handling noise etc. blah blah.... etc etc... UPDATE: I tried the fur makes almost no difference, so damping the basket won't work it seems...'
