Windscreen Rycote or BUBBLEBEE Industries

Recommended Posts

Rycote classic softie or BUBBLEBEE Industries Windkiller short hair. Which do you guys think is better? BUBBLEBEE also has the spacer bubble kit which looks like could be a winner too.

 

Thanks,

Alex

I have a Spacer bubble and the short fur doesn’t seem terribly more effective in medium-heavy wind than the spacer by itself to me. You will definitely want the long fur too.

What is your impression vs a classic softie and/or a classic Rycote basket solution?

I’ve not done a head to head comparison but my impression is that the spacer is more effective and sounds better (esp. with the fur removed) than a classic softie, and not quite as good as a traditional basket + windjammer. 

 

Side note: I wanted the spacer bubble for my Neumann RSM190 stereo mic, but the mic does not fit in any of their standard models. When I reached out to Bubblebee about that they gladly made me a custom one to fit (using measurements I sent them of the mic). They turned it around in just a few weeks and it didn’t cost me any more than an off the shelf one. 

 

Rycote’s customer service is great as well of course, but I was really impressed with how Bubblebee went above and beyond.

I ended up getting the spacer bubble with the short and long hair. BUBBLEBEE Industries has great customer service and I am so far very happy with the product. The spacer bubble has great transparency (Has not been windy to test out the fur covers yet).
