The RAINMAN softens the impact of rain drops falling onto the boom microphone.
The RAINMAN channels rain away from the microphone, along the outside of the
"zeppelin" style windscreen.
How does it
Like it's not even there. The RAINMAN is more acoustically transparent than
traditional "furry" windshield covers
The RAINMAN is made of a
soft, lightweight batting that does not absorb water or mat up when wet.
Instead, the rain drops simply slow down as they flow through and are channeled
out the front. The exterior is net material with sturdy stitching and a Velcro
closure. The RAINMAN easily slides onto most windscreens, and is secured with
The RAINMAN goes on and
off quickly and easily. To install the RAINMAN, simply slide it on with the open
end at the front of the microphone then close the Velcro slot.
In heavier rain, the
RAINMAN may eventually take on water faster than it can channel it through. In
this case, it may be a good idea to occasionally remove the RAINMAN and shake or
wring the water out. With a little experience you will get a feel for when and
how often this should be done. The RAINMAN's effectiveness has been proven in
actual production environments.
It is recommended that the
RAINMAN be used without a furry wind cover. However, for added wind protection,
a stretchy “sock" type cover may be used under the RAINMAN.
