OUR PART # REM-MCATB
The original miniature windscreen. The Micro-Cat Miniature Windscreen allows the use of lavalier microphones in windy conditions that would otherwise cause serious audio problems.
Hand made from a fuzzy outer layer plus two additional inner layers of open weave fabric, the Micro-Cat very effectively stops wind from reaching the microphone to substantially reduce wind noise while remaining sonically transparent. The elastic opening easily fits over most lav microphones with diameters of up to 12mm.
When used with narrow microphones such as the Sanken COS-11, the microphone's normal mesh windscreen is used inside the Micro-Cat for a secure fit. Even the tiny Countryman B-6 works well in the Micro-Cat when combined with the microphone's foam ball.
Because of the increased potential for clothing noise when conceled, the micro-cat is best used outside the clothing, fully exposed. For long wide shots that are sometimes the reason for needing a wireless lav mic in the first place, the Micro Cat's black color can often go completely unnoticed
The supplied miniature screwdrivers are a convenient way of storing the Micro-Cat, aiding in finding the opening and keeping them from blowing away during windy shoots.
