Zoom H1 Windscreen
I know this is old, but I'm curious which you got. I've been looking around for one myself. Obviously there are a lot of DIY windscreens out there, but I wonder if the material used is acoustically transparent. I was thinking of going with a furryhead (http://furryheadwindscreens.com/) but a few reviews I read said that they "shed" and that they muffle the high frequencies as well as the wind. This is not the way it should be. I finally went with the k-tek windscreen (http://www.ktekbooms.com/toppers/) as I was reading a post from a person who works there and he was arguing back and forth with someone who was purely a Rycote fan, and he said that the material used on the k-tek was acoustically transparent and that the material used was a BIG deal. Anyway, I can't find that forum post or I'd paste it here. I thought it was interesting. Anyway, it was between the Rycote and the K-tek for me and the K-tek was only $26 plus free shipping at B&H. The Rycote was almost $50. The furryhead (the original windscreen I almost bought) was $15 with a few bucks added on for shipping.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
