The Baby Ball Gag Windshield is a low-profile ball-type wind diffuser for cylindrical microphones. The Baby Ball Gag Windshield is made of the same materials as the standard windshield and is fitted with a grommet that grips the microphone body. The microphone is pushed through the grommet, completely enclosing the mic capsule within the windshield.

Rycote 011001 reviews

Baby Ball Gag Windshield is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wind protection The baby ball gag with the furry windjammer stood up perfectly to a very high-wind recording day I did in Time Square a while back - I was impressed. Before that outing, I tested it at home by putting the mic in the ball and accompanying windjammer, standing in front of it with a large piece of cardboard, and fanning like mad. I was really only a few inches from the mic, and was fanning the large piece of cardboard for all I was worth, and the recordings afterwards didn't have a trace of wind noise. Good enough for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Windshiled for your microphone I use it with the Oktava Mk-012 and it makes a huge difference. Outdoors it really cuts noise but I mainly use this for indoors. It really cuts the extra room tone and other noises down. use with a really good shockmount and you will love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, Compact and reliable Secure, snug and easy to switch out. The ball alone doesn't provide a great deal of protection from a good Texas wind, but is also very transparent. Add the furry cover and it's easy to switch to outdoor mode as your hustling out the door. The furry cover easily managed protection form 35 mile an hour gust. Easy to install, easy to remove (the front) and easy to add more protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply fantastic! Used this last weekend on a short film paired with an Oktava MK-012 and have to say, the BBG performed absolutely beautifully! Seriously, the Oktava is a remarkable microphone that's plague with handling and movement sensitivity but this BBG helped eliminate any and all wind on it. Used it with a Rycote Inv-HG MK-III and boy, it was a match made in heaven. Definitely worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best ball of plastic I've ever spent $130 on The majority of my use of the BBG so far has been on indoors shoots, where it has done a wonderful job cutting room tone and boom movement. I use it with the Oktava MK-012, a mic rather prone to movement noise but the BBG has cut that concern rather nicely. I've run some tests with the BBG on the MK-012 outside and again, found the BBG quite satisfactory. In a pinch I wouldn't have many qualms using this combo for a controlled shoot outdoors in lieu of a shotgun mic. While the price can be irksome for a plastic ball it feels well made and durable, and really, what piece of audio/video equipment doesn't feel irksomely priced? The BBG breaks in half to allow proper insertion of mic, however it can still be a bit of work to get the mic in there, especially with shorter mics. The threading also feels like it could be smoother, with perhaps more threads, but as is, is certainly adequate. Ultimately rather pleased with the purchase; the negatives do not counteract it's great wind cutting ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silence is golden This baby ball gag works great with my Oktava mod condenser mic. It can be a bit tedious putting it on and taking it off, but that ensures a snug fit. Not really sure how that could be improved, but as long as it works; I'm not complaining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, works well The Baby Ball Gag Windshield works as advertised. I suggest to get the additional Rycote fur covering (or make your own) to avoid further wind noise. I'm primarily using this with my AT4021 cardioid mics for field recording in nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, effective, cheap..cheaper solution I use this with my Oktabva MK012 as everybody else. It works fine with the inversion/lyre mount, although the mount seems to need to be tightened really tight for it to hold.
