DIY Mic Blimp

I build this DIY microphone blimp for field recording.

Materials used:
 – wire mesh
 – wire
 – elastic from ebay
 – Rode deadcat
 – pine for the handle

The pine handle was shaped with a saw and rasp mainly. It has a small coat of shellac.

It works pretty good but its a bit rattly when I jiggle it around. Some glue or similar on the wires on the handle could help.
