Cinela PIANISSIMO Windshield

Following the success of the PIANO, the PIANISSIMO is mainly designed for the new generation of short shotgun microphones and coincident stereo, surround-sound combinations and many other mics shorter than 8 in (21 cm).

As with all other Cinela windshields since 2007, Pianissimo integrates a unique full-cage isolation to prevent vibrations and handling noise by an additional ~15 db. This Cinela invention, the well-known “floating basket” principle, is achieved by four flexible “U” isolators installed around the cage. A rubber bellows at the bottom of the cage insures flexibility and keeps wind out.

The New VDB Boom Poles

October 26, 2001 at 9:08 am

For years the Van den Bergh "VdB" boom poles (fish poles) had been far better than any others for most situations.  It looked like boom pole technology had reached its pinnacle. OK, so they bent too much and sometimes broke when fully extended with a heavy mic fully rigged (like […]
