What would be the best wind shield solution for the AKG C1000?

The best Windshield Solution would be to have the AKG C1000 within a complete Windshield basket (this applies to all microphones where possible).

The best solution would be:

Description: Modular Windshield WS 4 Kit

Order Code: 086001

Web link: www.rycote.com/products/086001

UK List Price: £356.40 exc. VAT each




Alternatively you could opt for:

Order Code: 104403

Web link: www.rycote.com/products/104403



Description: 30/55 Mini Windjammer for foam

Order Code: 055376

Web link: www.rycote.com/products/055376



The only draw back from using a foam and Windjammer combo is that the back end of the microphone is not covered. This means it is still susceptible to wind noise hitting the body of the Mic and entering through the switch and XLR connection.
If this is the case, you could try covering the back of the Mic up with a soft material.
