Shure locking windscreen for AT853?
« on: August 29, 2013, 03:21:45 AM »
Alright I just spend waaaaay too much time searching for info I know I commented on at some point to find the info later and my searches didn't help.

I know there are some shure locking foam windscreens that fit the AT853 mics.
Can someone please share what model they are

will the Shure RK412WS  fit?

or is another...
please lead me in the correct direction.
thanx bunches!

-Ian

Thanks

I think those might be them, also at sweetwater and else where:
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/RK183WS

Thing is the specs on shures don't cite any dimensions on any of their mic spec pdfs. the AT853  show
Quote
1.39" (35.2 mm) long,
0.47" (12.0 mm) diameter
on the SP site it shows inner height .9" and inner width .6"  seems like these are too wide? 
 
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/RK412WS/
Seem to be smaller and might be the correct size, but are they the correct fit? Again no cap demensions on shure mic specs...


can anyone else confirm or deny either ?


thanks again

I use these as well.  They are tight fitting but do the job well.  Just be cautious when removing them.  I managed to break one of my four already.

Received my 4-pack of
Shure RK183WS  and can confirm that they it!  Yes they are a tight fit and  are a bit of a challenge to get back off.

If one were running open outside you would likely want some dead rats over the screens but for   >:D they would likely be fine the way they are!

thanks to all for giving me the tip (s) !

Would I lie about using them?  ;)

And indeed, the screens aren't enough on their own.  I used the subcards back in June with the screens only and got hit with some wind noise on a recording.  The deat rats/muppets fix that very nicely.   And yes, if you want to change the caps, you have to do so very carefully.  By yanking on them, I managed to break one windscreen already.

Adrian never wanted to imply that you'd lie...
These things are much smaller than the orignal windscreens that come with the AT853's, however the locking plastic basket seems that it might hold the screens slightly away from the cap, which is good.

from your tip I found that twisting them off in a clockwise motion as to not unscrew the caps seems to make it "almost" easy...

thanks again for the tips!!!!

Ian, I never implied that.  ;)

I do like that they're smaller, although, I find they're not as good for wind protection but if I need something smaller, I can always run these in a hat.  The clockwise motion thing works REALLY well and that's how I've learned to get them off the caps.

BTW, thanks for the pointers on the AKG caps -- they're serving me well in my active setup.  I almost find that I'm not using the 853's at all now. I just need to find a pair of CK63's (I've used a buddy's when running open they've saved my bacon when shows haven't been as loud or they've been chatty).

Ah yes all is good!

Again Thank you!

I am excited to have some AT 853's back in my life... missing my sub card caps....

need to find some dead rats or not
in my   >:D rig I may not even need the rats. I think I'll only use these   >:D
or may be when I am traveling for  a rig to run  when needed.


PS glad the CK61's are treating you well, happy to recommend Ron from Full Comppass

I notice that the AT8109's are "two-stage". I ran a pair of regular foam ones I picked up at Sam Ash yesterday and got  a lot of wind noise. Wonder if these would be as good as running the dead rats?
