K-Tek Introduces the Soft-Zepp US (#KR-SFT-ZEPP). Manufactured by Reinhart Microphone Products of Denmark, Soft-Zepp is a revolutionary Zeppelin style windshield system that allows a microphone to be mounted without the hassle of bayonet or screw fittings.
The Soft-Zepp US is constructed of a special lightweight acoustic foam with a very coarse pitch. This produces a cavity that is fundamental for creating an effective windshield system, and at the same time, minimizes high frequency attenuation. What’s more, Soft-Zepp has a large diameter for greater wind noise reduction.
This lightweight (just 14 oz./390 g), simple-to-use system features a permanently mounted fur windcover and a comfortable Kraton rubber handgrip with soft gel inserts. A thread in the handle allows for quick and effortless attachment of a boom pole. The microphone is then simply inserted into the back of the Soft-Zepp. Available in one size, Soft-Zepp US is designed to fit most shotgun microphones.
U.S. MSRP price for KR-SFT-ZEPP is $275.00. For further information, contact: K-Tek, 1384-F Poinsettia Ave., Vista, CA 92081; Ph. 760-727-0593; Fax 760-727-0693; www.ktekbooms.com
