Small windscreens (thin) to AKG CK61
« on: February 08, 2015, 03:47:17 PM »
Hello!

Festival season is building up - and I'm planning my summer adventures!

I'm low key, and only stealth. Using my current setup I can't really fit the windscreens that came with the AKG CK61's.

Do you have any tips where I can get my hands on thinner options, that really just measure 3-5 mm all around the caps? Or is it better to NOT use windscreens at all? I've done a few shows without screens and the wind can't really be heard at all, just the sound from the PA that won't really reach the caps. Would like to be sure no wind gets recorded.

ANyone needs specific setup - PM.

Thanks!

/Jonas, Sweden

Outdoors, you should use screens whether it's windy or not imho. Dust etc. is hard to clean out of a mic.

IMO, screens should be worn whether you're indoors or outdoors :)

although this option is thicker than 5mm...the Audio Technica Windscreen for the 4051 is rather slim as I recall....and fits the CK61 diameter...

Thanks for the input - I will look into this asap :)

Is this the actual B1?

The Schoeps B1 is actually not really a windscreen, is it? More a protection to put over the capsules when they´re not in use.

Does it work well as a windscreen?

I don't know honestly! I've NEVER seen a Schoeps taper [or any taper] use those B1 screens and they look like they wont off much protection! I always liked the AKG screens that are low profile and have that slit halfway down the screen! That is what I would get if I were you! They came with my 481's when I bought them new in 1999 and my ck63s when I bought them new in 2003 or 2004! Anyone know the actual part number for those?

I did get windscreens to my CK61/63's but I won't fit them with my current setup, it's low key...

They should resist 18km/h (5m/s) wind - not much, but as a protection to dust etc at a festival it should be enough ;)

I'll let you know when I get them, and try them.

I have several pairs of B1s. I use them for indoor shows only but I always use them if I'm indoors. I don't think they affect the sound much if at all. I believe they are designed to keep resin off the caps when close micing stringed instruments. For schoeps outdoors I think the B5Ds are pretty good, but they won't fit the AKGs. For those I would go with DPA or Shure, but neither are good for very low profile/stealth stuff.

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 :)
