FIELD RECORDING BAG

I’ve been looking for a variety of field recording bags, and in the past, I used to curry microphones in arc’teryx miura 45 and pieces of equipment in another bag, but now I can store much in this Peak Design Travel Duffelpack bag.
As you have already seen how Tim Prebble uses this bag, this bag opens from your back so no need to worry about getting dirt on your back anymore!

I tested compatible as a field recording bag, and the result was It could hold gears more than I thought.

But how about its maximum load capacity? I’ve asked them before purchasing, and their quick kind answer was they tested at well over 200+ without signs of failure!
YES! & NICE! They have such great customer support!

It is the best bag for me so far which I’d like to recommend to all colleagues and field recordists out there.

Since Line Audio cm3 is so tiny, it was hard to find a windshield that fits. On top of that, ws10 might be too gorgeous…Plus I wanted to make a small set to fit in my bag along with mkh8040s in ws10.
So this BBG came better than what I expected! The actual dimension of oball’s smaller circle was just as size as rubber bushing which Inside dimension was the same size as cm3 (20mm). PERFECT!^^!

I just made quick comparison of DIY BBG and Rycote baseball
(nnn…baseball is not so good for outdoor use, but…)

Audio is just as raw from inside Rycote baseball.

Wave from BASEBALL

Audio is just as raw from inside Oball.

This is great solution for zoom f8 using external battery.
With this Anker PowerCore 10000 mobile battery (10000mAh, full charged) and LANMU’s 5v to 12v usb to dc connector, Zoom f8 could run 8 hours ( 11.7~6v continuously ) with 8 tracks phantom on.
That means with internal battery I can go a day which is good enough for field recording as I just need to power up zoom f8 right before hit rec. If you are location sound guy, you can go for more powerful mobile battery.

Size of this mobile battery is 92 × 60 × 22(mm) and Weight 180g, so much smaller and lighter than carrying extra AA batteries and much nice to walk around with full of gears!

And importantly, usb mobile batteries are affordable and convenient, so I don’t think I need to invest on Np1 or sony’s batteries anymore!^^!

Thanx to Saturday Sound Guy for great introduction.
