URSA Foamies shield

Dear All, 

 

I'm an avid user of Ursa Foamies. 

Since they often have a short lifespan, I made a small shield to protect them from all the tape abuse. 
Also it works very well in thicker fabrics and jackets and it gives a fair bit of isolation.

With the shield the foam becomes like a shockmount. Also you can put a windcover over the opening on top.


If anybody is interested to try it out, send me a PM for a stl print file.

Although it is starting to look a bit bulky, I do like the windcover potential, and the distancing of mic head from clothing. 

Looks like it could be a useful tool in certain situations.

Damn! I need to get myself a 3D printer!

I might as well post the file here. 


My recommendation is to smoothen the surface after printing. 
Also insert mic (Cos-11) into Foamie first and after that slide it in the cover.
Curious to hear your impressions after testing. 

all the best, 

Lucas

I went for it and had A friend of mine print me a bunch and for my personal workflow these are absolutely perfect! They are not for every Mike placement but definitely another tool to deploy when needed. I had great success with collared button up shirts and polos using these. In the past I used to use a combo of make up sponge moleskin and toupee tape for starchy shirt applications to create this same idea and as I had suspected these are a third of the size. I used these with DPA 6060s And the mike stays tightly  suspended and fully shock absorbed inside with much less transference vs ursa mounts alone. I use a single piece of toupee tape for the slimmest footprint for its size but can definitely be used with moleskin as needed. This was my first attempt at 3-D printing gadgetry and I really appreciate you posting the file it worked perfect for him to print from.

Hi Osa, 
It is good to see some prints finding their way into the field. 
Also nice to hear that you have had a good first impression. Hopefully this combo will help you in many scenario's to come!

 

I might do a smaller version for the mini foamies at some point, I'll post them here when it's done.

Thank you so much!  I think we’re gonna print a few.  I appreciate your work, thank you for sharing.
