A simple tutorial to do a windscreen for your microphone (⌀ 20mm), step by step.
1. Obal (⌀ 10cm) x2 ⋍ 6€ each
2. Synthetic Fur (⋍1m x 50cm)
3. Suspension Superlux HM30 ⋍ 3€
4. Sugru (moldable glue) x2
5. Elastic cord (⋍1m)
6. Plastics cord locks x 2
7. Sewing thread
8. Sheet of paper
1. Cutter (Blade Knife)
4. Permanent ink pen
5. Poska paint marker
6. Sewing machine
Take out the inner part of the Superlux suspension HM30
Cut it in the middle with the cutter (Blade Knife)
Put each part of the suspension in one of the hole of the Oball
Open one of the Sugru package
Note about Sugru: You could do your own moldable glue mixing 50% silicone with 50% cornstarch (maizena) to get a similar result as the sugru.
- Apply the Sugru (or the silicone mix) between the suspension and the oball, in order to glue both elements. One pack per ball is enough.
Mark with a chalk or liquid chalk paint marker a circle of 10,5cm and a rectangle of 34cm x 10,5cm
Cut the figures with scissors
Saw the pieces of synthetic fur with a sewing machine
Put an elastic cord on the edge and a plastic cord lock at the end of it
After 24h mount the windscreen on your microphone
Put the synthetic fur on it
Go to record in the wind!
This tutorial is not an invention, but rather a combination of different ideas and DIY experiments on the internet, specially Jérôme Bailly for his nice initiative.
