I bought these Windscreen, because, I wanted to record videos using the BETA without having a pop filter covering half the faces of who I'm recording.
After trying a few microphones for my voice, I really liked the sound of the BETA 57. And after trying with some guys and girls, I found this microphone to be my favorite for a normal male voice. Unfortunately some of the guys I recorded, just, really, need a pop filter.
With this windscreen I find that the sound isn't affected all that much, it just gets a little bit darker (and maybe a tiny little bit muffled) which I personally like.
I've also used it on an outside video recording, in a, somewhat windy day, and it did a perfect job, as expected.
When I received my delivery, Reliable as Always with Thomann I must add, I was pleasantly surprised with this windshield. Looks the part, it's well made and is Thick enough to do the job as a windshield, but also as a Pop-screen. Good quality. And then came the strange bit: putting it onto my Beta 57A. It Fits onto the microphone Perfectly, but the bottom ring is magnetic, which feels a bit weird, and it feels like it could come off the microphone at any time. I think it's a good idea to take it off when You store the microphone when not in use. And it Certainly changes the appearance of the Microphone. The Beta 57a is not a Big microphone anyway, and with the AWS, the microphone looks much smaller, like a short miniature mic. I quite like the New look!! It's a bit of a shame that the ring of the AWS obscures the mic's Logo, but hey, who cares. Looks and feels Really Good. I am yet to try the mic out properly with the AWS, I use the microphone with a Chord harmonica, which is a wind instrument and the Breath through the harmonica is spread out in the harmonica, which is why I decided to add the AWS. At my first try-out, it works Very well and the mic sounds Much better than without the AWS, I can hardly wait for my first try at a gig.
Good product, and a Big Thank You Thomann, for the delivery!!
