Recommendations for stealth windscreens for Schoeps MK4?
« on: September 18, 2023, 12:00:38 AM »
For outdoor gigs, I notice some occasionally wind noise and wondering if there are any preferred winscreens for Schoeps MK4 caps. I like to keep them under my hat, but noticed that there's a definate uptick in windy conditions in the San Francisco Bay area, and wondering what people use to deal with wind when stealth taping outdoors.

I have a pair of Schoeps windscreens but never use them.  Found some cheap ones on Amazon/Ebay that work in a hat.  Nothing fancy but helps just enough.

I don't use windscreens (or haven't had to yet), but I've been told these work for MK41s:

These are great outside and reasonable cheap.
I bought a pair, cut them exactly in half, and used them in conjunction with the cardboard visor part of my kangol-style hat and then packed enough foam around to insulate and cover up the look. Its not graceful and it depends upon how you position the mics and the size of you hat but the MK5s fit in there pointing where I want and its saved me from the windiest venue in town, Red Butte Garden.
once again, lost in all the noise

Bay Area camouflage.  Only problem will be the incongruence of standing still while wearing that and not dancing wildly.

Funny the listing for it doesn't specify concert functionality, while the plain dark version of it does, and while it specifically mentions the disco/rainbow wig has no odour apparently the plain dark version is brand new.
