Our home brewed fuzzy

I have a beach gig this weekend, and I can tell so far that it does help with the wind. I'll have two lavs for my main sound. It helps to have a wife that can sew.

When you are done shooting you can dust with it! ;-)

Seriously, what did you use for support under the material?

If you don't sew you're almost SOL but I've
been thinking of a way to mimic thread stitching
by using small alligator clips up the seam.

Bill Hamell May 29th, 2006 01:16 PM

If you can not sew, buy a Rycote. ;-)

Or you could use the stick on Velcro instead of sewing.

I think there's such a thing as "fabric glue", that
is supposed to hold pretty well.

The stock black wind cover, i know i know, i'm losing sound, but for this application, i'm good I think. So to recap, it's the mic, the black stock mic cover, and the furry thing.

Just add a bit of air in the EQ and you'll be
back to normal.

My wife said she'd make one for anyone in exchange for 50 dollars or a Sony Z1u. Just kidding. I'm sure she would't mind, ofcourse I'd have to check. :}

That would work, there is also iron on binding tape that works well.

What makes this work is the dead air space between the fuzzy and the mic.
I was going to suggest you make some kind of support to provide that air space. This I think will improve the performance of the fuzzy.
Maybe some kind of plastic support fore and aft to keep it above the black windscreen.

I was thinking of doing what you did let us know how it woked out.

Will Do................hehe, if my old brain can remember

Bill Hamell May 29th, 2006 04:04 PM

Opps! Forgot to ask where did you buy the material?

Thanks,
Bill

I have one of these stores in my town. http://www.joann.com/?AID=9818761&PID=1413356&SID=b112

It's just a fabric store, the material was 15 bucks a yard. I tried to find that stuff called wolf hair that Boyd talked about at Wal-mart, I haven't found it yet.

Dave Largent May 29th, 2006 04:44 PM

I think the price at Ben Franklin was about $25 for
a yard last year.

Fur?
 
There is a lot of variation in fake fur. The backing in particular in very different. Some backings are stiff and almost solid, while others ane very porous and flexible. I would assume that porous and flexible would block the sound the least, but I have never looked at one of the professional softies. What is the backing like? What should we look for in fake fur to get the best results?
