Just ordered 2 B1's from a Schoeps seller/store in Sweden. $6 a piece, instead of $13 as on the sites I found when using google (US-stores).

Will let you know the result as soon as the outdoor-season starts :)

So what was the outcome?

I am looking for the same,small windscreens for AKG ck61 actives for stxxxth.


I used to use AT8159's when I had my actives... and will likely go back to those unless somebody else can offer a better, equally inexpensive option.

From Schoeps' Web site: "The B 1 ... is especially suitable for protecting a capsule from rosin dust when attached to a string instrument (e.g. with the VA 1 violin mount) and as a hygiene protection."

The "B" in its product designation stands for "Besprechungsschutz" ("Schutz" = protection, "Besprechung" = being spoken into / at). Schoeps' actual windscreens all have product names starting with "W" ("Windschutz").

Is it better than nothing when there's wind or air conditioning? Yes, but not by much; you're playing the odds that there will be only very minimal, gentle air currents, just at the margin of what the microphone's built-in screening could have handled anyway. Also, a "Besprechungsschutz" generally is designed to protect the capsule from moving air that strikes it more or less on-axis. Wind currents don't respect that assumption, though.

--best regards

For my purposes the B1's have been successful if you ask me. I have, however, not been using them on a stormy show - but the big problem is really not getting the wind in the microphones itself - but the sound from the PA will be the big problem... really nothing you can do about that anyway...
