Has anyone hacked a Rycote BBG or Windscreen?

Recommended Posts

Asking as I encountered someone who was using the grommeted sides of two BBG's, taped together, to make something that would cover a pair of Sennheiser MKH 800's for DMS or Blumlien use.  It struck me one could possibly use a single BBG and mount a second grommet, and I wonder how treacherous an operation that might be.  I don't know what happens when you pierce the internal fabric, nor how fragile the frame is under cutting pressure, getting the grommet mounted, etc.    I'm told Rycote won't sell a version like this, likely doesn't meet their desired protection spec.    You could of course do this with a standard longer mono windscreen, but I'm thinking about something with a smaller visual footprint that wouldn't require another specialized conn box.    Thanks for any thoughts.

Not treacherous, did you ever build models cars/airplanes when younger? 

 

I've made a few windscreens and cages, it was intimidating but not difficult by any means. Quite impressive when finished. 

 

Most have a few broken bits and bobs of rycote end caps and pieces that they keep around to fabricate a special purpose wind screen or one time use kinda thing. 

 

I think you should go for it. Let me know if you have any questions.

Great, thanks.  Yes, I did sniff a bit of that little clear bottle as a kid.....and built some Godzilla models!
