Mics are interchangeable in this blimp (if the mic's diameter will fit inside).
Step 1: Materials
Paint roller from Walmart ~ $2.25
Scrunchie hair elastics ~ $3
Sink strainer from Bed Bath & Beyond ~ $4
Microphone(s) (assumed you already have these)
(Materials not shown)
Five feather boas from Michael's craft store ~$10
Black thread and needle
paint roller extension pole from Home Depot ~ $16
Step 2: Attach mic shock mount cords
2. Cut the elastics in half and thread the elastic through the grill in the bird feeder (a long pair of hemostats is helpful).
3. Clip one end of the elastic (a bulldog clip or similar) and thead the other end of the elastic through the grill and clip that end (see figure with clips).
4. Use superglue to glue the elastic band ends together. If the ends don't stick, use scissors to cut the glue off of each end before attempting to glue again.
5. Continue with other bands until an 'X' pattern is achieved.
6. Repeat 'X' pattern until three sets of elastics are mounted (see figure)
7. Test elastics position by sliding the mic through the sets of elastics as shown in two figures. Ensure that the mic doesn't touch the sides, because any movement of the blimp will cause the sound of the knocking of the mic against the grill on the recording.
