Movo WST50 Ballistic Nylon Windscreens - back in stock!
« on: July 03, 2022, 01:48:47 PM »
I have sung the praises of these screens many times here, having successfully insulated my CM3s from 40 mph gusts on more than one occasion.

The model you want to use with most pencil mics has been hard to find recently, but I wanted to report it is now back in stock at Adorama and also at Movo's online store.

I needed a second set. Thanks for the heads up on these, Volt.

Adorama is now currently on back order.

Thanks for the info pointing these windscreens out. Do you use the 3 cm length, or a longer version?

The 3cm model called WST50 is perfect for the CM3/4.

The 3cm model works great for actives as well.  I have the ws 50, wst 50, and ws g30.  Best bang for the buck for windscreens.

Does this fit properly with nbob actives on a SRS mount?

Are these better than Shure BAS ?

They work great with Nbobs on a SRS bar or Kwon style bar!  I haven't used BAS I just hated carrying them around due to size.  For years I used the DPA screens with Windcutter furs over them.  The Movos grip the mic much better.

Does the ws 50 provide same the wind protection as wst 50?  What is the difference?

I think the wst 50 provides better protection, but using both in the field I doubt you would notice a difference between the two.  The ws g30 is a suppose to provide better protection than all the options, because it has more fur.

Just picked up a pair of these. Very pleased with the price. My go to solution has been small foams and small dead rats for my actives. Problem with that is I was always hesitant to put the rats on and got caught a few times with high a gust that the small foams do nothing for. Hoping these are the ultimate solution without attenuating too much.

So it was reported here: https://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=200320.msg2381552#msg2381552

That these things pretty much suck. Anyone else have any experience in high winds? I hate carrying BAS to. I thought these were the perfect solution. Haven't had a chance to use mine yet. :shrug:

I can't recommend them unless my pair is faulty which doesn't seem to be the case.


I also just received the Movo ws-g30....i plan to try some sort of wind test using a fan tomoorow against the BAS,WST-50,WS-G30.

Will report back here.

I have used mine in 40+ mph gusts before with my CM3s and they performed beautifully, so I'm quite surprised at beatkilla's bad experience.

beatkilla - One thing I noticed you mentioned in this reply to that Gov't Mule is that you had no space at the end of the caps. You typically need a couple cm space of "dead air" for windscreens of this type to work correctly. If you pull them out to allow for this space, does the rubber ring no longer go past the rear vents? If it's not covering, you might need the next size up.

jbell may have a point that hypers in heavy wind may not be the best choice, but then again pro ENG people use shotguns in heavy wind all the time. They usually have a full-out Rycote Blimp for those situations, however. Look at all the empty space around the capsule in one of those!

This: https://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=200475.0

was recorded using Line Audio OM1 & CM4s with Movo WST50 windscreens this past Friday. There were a couple of gusts, but no sustained wind. I felt the PA was pretty muddy, and (IMHO) the recording captures that.
