Quick Q for you guys - I'm looking at a new wind protection system for use with a Sanken CS-1 (subject to change mind you, might swap for a hyper cardioid at some point..) for SFX collection. Anyway, much as I'd love a Rycote full kit, I think I'd be better spreading my money about a bit so I'm either looking at The Rode Blimp, Rycote Baby Ball with pistol grip or maybe the rycote S-system.
I'm guessing zeppelin + soft windshield cover is best over just a soft windshield but always open to opinions. Basically its for use with a pistol grip or tripod, indoors and outdoors and for the forseable future only needs to accommodate a mono mic and will be replacing my current homemade one.
I'm veering to the Rode just for the screaming value and good protection it offers....will be demoing whatever I can in a few weeks Thanks
