Hello everyone, this is my first post here on recording.org, so a very happy hello from me! I've been a lurker on the site occasionally, but now I have something to share so I thought I'd register at last! diddlydoo (lol, that's the funniest emoticon I've ever seen) I'm very much interested in DIY projects, especially if they're audio related. So, almost three years ago I built a DIY shotgun microphone. It's very cheap to built (mine cost £12), and sounds fantastic because of its isolation from elements that frequently affect outside audio recording, like wind, and handling noises. That's mainly thanks to the wind cover and in-built shock mount (I know of no commercial shotgun mics that have such suspension). I got lots of requests to make a video overview of how it was done, so without further ado here it is: Please let me know your thoughts!
