Jan 19, 2012Public
Photo: Suspension for the mics is made out of soft but strong plastic
Photo: Mics are now fitted in the suspension. 
It is VERY important the the mics does not touch the gray aluminum ring. They must be floating in the Blimp on the suspension.
Much of the wind noise that you hear in the recordings is just a vibration in the Blimp body.
Photo: O rings are useful to isolate vibration between mics and Blimp. 
They makes smaler contact between suspansion and the carrying ring
Photo: The fastening nut may not touch the carrying ring. 
Both mics must float freely on the yellow suspension.
Photo: Important to make some mark on the cable to know which is mid or side mic .
Photo: Elastic band will make this mics as close to gather as it gets.
Photo: Fat and heavy microphones will destroy the inner layer in the Blimp. 
The damage on this pictures are made by Rode NT4.
Photo: X/Y 90- to 110°
or
Olson setup, 135° with 5cm apart.

Photo: Thinner 3,5mm cable are better because it is not as stiff as than 8mm original microphone cable
Photo: It would save the Blimp inner layer if sheet of plastic is wrapped around the mics when traveling.
