Windscreen for AT4050ST
« on: July 13, 2021, 10:51:33 PM »
The Phish shows at Dick's aren't that far away so I need to get some sort of wind protection squared away for my AT4050ST I picked up during the pandemic and haven't had a chance to use in anger yet.  I think there's a Rycote slip on foam (45/100) and windjammer (055428) that will work with it.  Can anyone suggest other options?  Particularly anyone with some real-world experience using this mic. 

I wouldn't be surprised if the Rycote is the best option but I'd like to find out more if possible.

I have the 4050st and the Rykote foam cover for LDCs and they work well together. In really windy conditions, I add a furry dead rat on top of the Rykote foam.

Heathen did you look at this thread.
https://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=197268.0

I bought these for my DPA402X -
 https://www.adorama.com/mvwst50.html

Used them last weekend and they are great. Had 20MPH gusts and no wind leaks. All wind screens take out some high end. Though these seemed minimal in those regards. Very well constusted and only cost 15.95 each. In the thread above they said you do not need dead rats over them.
Everyday is a gift. Enjoy each one!
Forward motion bring positive results.
