Rycote BBG Windshield, BBG Windjammer and very strong winds
« on: October 09, 2022, 03:44:02 AM »
These days I'm recording urban sounds with AT822 mic and a Zoom F3 recorder.
It is my hobby, and I am very satisfied.  :D
I put Rycote BBG Basket Windshield and Rycote BBG Windjammer on the AT822 mic.
But I'm wondering if there is a way to further reduce the very strong wind noise while minimizing the sound loss.
Your input would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Polar Pattern. Cardioid.
Omnis? Less susceptible to wind.

Omni, and larger full-surround blimps that increase the airspace between mic and blimp.

I will find a suitable blimp for my setup.
Thanks for all the replies. :)

The BBG with windjammer fur is quite effective as windscreens go, so if you are getting too much wind noise, using omnis may be the best option for you when it gets too windy.

To optimize wind noise rejection in your current setup:
1) Make sure the opening at the back of the windscreen where the microphone body exits is completely snug and absolutely wind-tight (test with a fan).
2) Make sure the front opening to the diaphragms and rear vents behind them are positioned as close to the center of the BBG airspace as possible (not too close to the front).
3) Look into a windjammer which uses longer fur.

I'll check the things you said. Thanks for your valuable advice.

p.s. I was thinking of putting a large Windjammer(like Windjammer for Rode Blimp) over the mic and the BBG Basket Windshield.

The windjammer without the blimp will just have excess fabric and space to move around and possibly create friction noise.
I have seen Rycote Cyclones in use during very strong wind with amazing results, but haven't tried myself (and they are expensive).

I'll add that at this stage I think a bigger enclosure is the best bet not only because it's likely to solve your problem in the short term, but also if you want to continue doing this sort of recording in the long term you'll want it anyway.  It will accommodate more mic choices than just the BBG will in the long term.
