To be honest, I didn’t need this as a windscreen. I wanted to protect my Shure Beta 58A Microphone from being dropped, knocked around and or the germs and bad breath of other people in the band as well as guests who use it to sing during rehearsals. I put the Shure A58WS BK windscreen on before a rehearsal and I don’t mind who sings into my microphone. The Shure A58WS BK windscreen is very easy to clean by throwing it in to the washing machine. I would with all certainty, recommend this to anyone with a need for it.
