When i had my 1000s i just went to a local music shop & picked up a cheep pair. They fit snug right over the stock ones & were 3 bucks each. nice size also.  

I'm not sure where your taping but anything is better than the stock screens.

Some of these you have to scroll down and the ones you want are the A81WS shure windscreens, these things are bad ass, I recorded at Red Rocks and not even a hint of wind good luck ;)

The Shure A81WS windscreens will fit mics roughly 20mm in diameter, give or take a couple mm.  The C1000S are ~34mm in diameter, so I don't think the A81WS will fit properly.

Curious to see what w/s people are using for the C1000S, as I don't know what'll fit!

Given you're in a hurry, Kindguy has a good point - if you can't get proper fitted w/s by Thu, buy some cheapo screens to put over the stock screens.  I did this once and it worked alright.  Not perfect, but it was pretty effective til I picked up some proper w/s.

couldn't you use the bigass shures, but just take the coarse foam insert out of the center?  Obviously this will affect the wind dampening properties, but the large part of the shure seems like more than enough as-is.

While on the topic of wind screens. Do you use them indoors? or just outdoors... I'm debating to get a pair in my sonic sense order tommorow... I wont be taping outdoors for a month or so. And what should I get for my 391's

IMO definately go with the A81WS shure windscreens they work perfectly and as for the 1000's sorry didnt take that into consideration (32mm v 34mm).

I use the DPA UA0896 indoors and the Shure A81WS outdoors.  The Shure's are more robust, but lots of folks seem to do okay with the DPAs outdoors, and $14 is a good price.
