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 CK63's are treating you well, happy to recommend Ron from Full Comppass

My subcards are generally what I'll run on the 853's (even if I'm right at the board).  There's something about the sound that just kicks ass.  I'll use the omnis if I'm up close, though.  If I'm gonna run the cards, my AKG's are coming out.  :P

Contact TBrown4 for some Dead Muppets.  The ones he did for my old CA-14's fit great, the ones he did for the Shure windscreens worked well and the DPA U0896 one's I got second-hand fit like a glove.  Even if I'm running them in the hat, there can be enough of a breeze to add some noise on the 853's.   Worth the investment and have saved my bacon.

And yes, Ron's a great guy.  Easy transaction and he shipped them to a thrid-party forwarder for em (a lot of places WILL NOT do this).  My Shure and DPA windscreens came from FC as well.

I hate to take this thread off subject, but since you brought it up...  8)

I also love the subcard caps. What patterns do you like to run with them? I recently ran them NOS FOB here:

and even though the music doesn't have much going on stereo-wise, the 'being there' factor is high with the crowd noise.

I recorded the same band XY using the Oade recommended wide angle for outdoors and didn't like the results. However, I was WAY back from the PA and the sound was pretty poor:

I ran them DIN on a stand at the board most recently (when open) but usually run them A-B inside a hat.   Either way, I've gotten good results; if your PA "sounds" distant from where you are, you're gonna get pooched on the pull regardless.  If the mix is awful, your capture will _usually_ be the same.  Hell, I also run CK61 actives and if the mix is poor or my location is "too close" or "too far off axis" my capture suffers.

Hey guys... I bought a pair of At853's from darktrain over the winter and Friday will be my first outdoor show on a mic stand. I bought the 4pk of Shure RK183WS's (and they fit perfectly), but I was curious what the "dead rat" method is? Can someone explain that to me so I can get the best pull possible? Thanks.

* edit -- just found this, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dead-Rat-Style-Windscreen-Covers-Black-Lime-Purple-Fuchsia-/140703797588
so when he wants measurements, can i just tell him i have the Shure RK183WS? dont think ill have them in time, but it will be nice to have them for the next show.
