Sharing Options

Made to offer the wind attenuation properties of a full sized windshield in a much smaller package, the BBG Windshields are designed to slip onto the body of the microphone. This allows the microphone to be hand-held or shock-mounted with a Lyre suspension.

Perfect for short microphones, the BBG Windshield are suitable for low-profile boom applications as well as for use in hand-held operations and interviews. They are widely used for microphones with bulbous ends and ORTF microphone pairs, where the maximum head diameter is 80 mm.

The windshield is constructed of the same material as the full size modular windshields, but rather than clipping to a microphone suspension, the Windshield is mounted directly on the microphone, by a grommet gripping the microphone body. The microphone is pushed through the grommet, to completely enclose the microphone capsule.

The Windshield consists of two halves, which can be separated, to fit microphones with a ball-head or tapered body from inside the windshield. For additional wind protection a furry Windjammer cover is available.

Finding the correct Baby Ball Gag will depend mainly on the diameter of the microphone shank. The size of the Baby Ball Gag relates to the diameter of the microphone body, i.e. a 22 mm Baby Ball Gag will fit a microphone with a 22 mm diameter shank. The microphone is fitted through a neoprene grommet into the Ball Gag, and must be central for the best wind protection.
