Internal depth & dimensions of MOVO WST windscreens?
« on: April 11, 2017, 10:34:20 AM »
Hey you Movo 'Balistic Nylon' windscreen (super softy clone) users, if you could take a couple measurements of your Movo WST windscreens you can help me figure out a which windscreen I may be able to adapt for use with some non-standard microphones.  I've not been able to find this information online.

The WSTT50 is nominally 3cm
The WST80 is nominally 6cm
The WST100 is nominally 8cm

>Does the nominal measurement accurately indicate the actual internal depth clearance as measured from the deepest insertion point out to the inner-most edge of the flange of the rubber end-cap coupler?  (if not what is the actual measurement?)
>How much further can the eraser end of a pencil be pushed in once it lightly 'bottoms out'? (slightly compressing the internal end-foam)
>How deep is the  rubber coupler's microphone mounting flange? (same depth as the external flange around the outer edge of the rubber endcap?)
>What is the exterior diameter of the entire rubber end cap?
>What is the overall external length of WSTT50, WST80 and WST100?

Thanks for your help!

'Not sure of the model numbers anymore but the fury ones I bought for my little family of SD's... see sig... go all the way on to my little finger, or around 6cm/2.25". The ballistic foam ones are the same. By comparison, my small'sh DPA's only go to  the second knuckle, or around 4cm/2" +/-. 

>How much further can the eraser end of a pencil be pushed in once it lightly 'bottoms out'? (slightly compressing the internal end-foam)   Not sure what you're driving at, but there doesn't seem to be all that much more material at the deepest point before you'd find yourself on the out side.  Prolly best to not insert your tools all the way when running hot... pull out a bit and leave some room on the end.

>How deep is the  rubber coupler's microphone mounting flange? (same depth as the external flange around the outer edge of the rubber endcap?)  That rubber business is just a molded "frame" to glue the foam and other bits to. It's about 1/16th inch thick or a little less and snugs up on a mic body as would an O ring. 

>What is the exterior diameter of the entire rubber end cap?    2.5"
>What is the overall external length of WSTT50, WST80 and WST100?  My fury one is 3.75" and the ballistic is not quite 4.25"

HTH  ;D

Thank you kindly and much obliged.  Seems you have the WS80.

I was thinking of replacing B-A-Shures, used in my typical non-conformist setup on microphones neither of these windscreens were intended for.  I ended up modifying some beat-up Shures with a makeshift hole-punch and a foam hair curlers as mic bushing for the Wanee fest.  Don't laugh, it worked really well.  Although happy with that solution, I may still pursue the Movo route as I like the fabric outer cover and compact size, and I think this info will be useful here for others, so if anyone else has dimensions for the other models please post them.

So we're comparing finger sizes now?  :o

Well... what else would you have me stick in there?  ;)

I have the WSTT50 and will gladly take the digital calipers to it.  Would you like that in imperial or metric?   :hmmm:

Either is fine. I'll convert and post a summary once we get a few more reports, thanks!

Measurements below for WSTT50:

>Does the nominal measurement accurately indicate the actual internal depth clearance as measured from the deepest insertion point out to the inner-most edge of the flange of the rubber end-cap coupler?  (if not what is the actual measurement?)
Ha!  Not at all.  6 cm.

Quote
>How much further can the eraser end of a pencil be pushed in once it lightly 'bottoms out'? (slightly compressing the internal end-foam)
Almost a full cm more.  Difficult to measure as the inner foam is the large open-cell variety.

Quote
>How deep is the  rubber coupler's microphone mounting flange? (same depth as the external flange around the outer edge of the rubber endcap?)
External flange where "MOVO" is printed is 17 mm.
Thickness of rubber that contacts the mic body is 1.5 mm.
That contact area is countersunk / beveled inwards towards the head of the screen 5 mm.  Inner beveled area is 37 mm dia. 

Quote
>What is the exterior diameter of the entire rubber end cap?
7 cm

Quote
>What is the overall external length of WSTT50, WST80 and WST100?
WSTT50 is 100 mm total length.
