UW microphones

hi,
does anyone know where I can buy a waterproof (not for depth) mic with a 5 meter (17') cable. None of the housing makers are interested to sell one by itself. Google don't appear to be aware any either.
thanks H

Hi Hubert..........

Scroll down the page to the Google box, type in "Hydrophone" and click "The Entire Web" and then "Search".

Google knows!

Another trick is to put an EV RE50 in a non lubricated condom, seal the opening around the cable and off you go. As an underwater videographer I can tell you that underwater sounds aren't that interesting - lots of clicks and crackling mostly (and the sound of your own breathing and bubbles of course).

Hydrophone, of course ! Just didn't think of that. I don't actually need it underwater as such, just to be unaffected by wet conditions. The condom idea sounds interesting. Any particular flavour ? Lol
many thanks fellers.

Thanks for the update, Hubert.......

I take it the condom idea didn't quite cut the mustard?
