The Rycote BBG Basket Windshield is made to offer the wind attenuation properties of a full sized windshield in a much smaller package, BBGs 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. This wind shield is perfect for short microphones. BBGs 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 BBG 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 ball gag 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.
