    K-Tek KTDR40 reviews

    Topper Windscreen for DR-40 is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not That Bad! I agree with everyone who says it doesn't fit so well. The DR-40 ain't so easy to fit any windscreen to though. Solution is simple. I snipped the elastic band and continued about 3/8 into the cover. Now it fits perfectly (in XY position only). It stays put but I keep a rubber band handy just in case. Those who say it doesn't reduce wind noise don't have a clue. I took it out today in 20 mph winds with gusts up to 35 mph. DR-40 input level at 65 (a good setting for voice recording at 1' distance). No windscreen and I was clipping and probably running +10db peaks. Applied the windscreen and I was at -35db average, which is as good a result as I've had from any windscreen.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it. Rather difficult to put on, and it doesn't like to stay on. Part of this is due to the design of the recorder though. The windscreen also makes the output jack difficult to use. Again, partly due to the shape and design of the recorder. My biggest issue, however, is the fact that it doesn't block much wind at all. Even blowing very very gently onto the recorder, there is hardly any difference between having this on or off (and definitely not enough of a difference to justify the hassle of using this thing in the first place).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from average Once on the product does provide pretty good wind protection. I haven't tested it out in extreme wind conditions but in all scenarios I did test it out which had some average wind. It was never noticeable on the audio sample. Only problem is putting the topper on. Its incredibly tedious. I have been using it for 2 months now and still struggle every time I go to put it on. I would reccomend it on the basis that it does its job.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not much help The biggest drawback to this is that it doesn't work that well. I expected problems in a serious wind but even a gentle breeze is a noise problem. The other problem is that it is extremely difficult to put on the recorder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small affordable option, easy on I works well for moderate windy environments. I store the windscreen inside out and roll it on the DR-40 when I need to use it. It really only fits on the DR-40 in XY mode.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this You don't really notice the difference between having the windscreen on the Tascam or not and you can not use this if the mics are set AB.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit, don't buy. First, the one received does not look like the picture. Second, it doesn't fit my DR40. Worthless to me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but not great Works Well but it next to impossible to get it attached and keep it there.
