The Zeppelin microphone holder features a large pre-installed windshield with the updated 45 PPF Cell Foam material which easily carries most pencile style microphones (diameter equal or less then 25 mm) such as Schoeps, Sennheiser, DPA by using the pre-installed silicone rubber rings at the front of the holder.
Since you can access both the microphone holder and dish from behind the setup you may place a miniature microphone or even two (for stereo experiments) - one inside the Zeppelin holder and another mounted to the edge of the dish for example. If you use DPA 4060:s you may use the surface mounts.

The Universal MK2 handle is fitted with a new 1.5 meter length-adjustable high quality Gotham Audio cable with Neutrik gold plated XLR:s. Since you may adjust the full length of the cable from bottom and top of the handle to the Zeppelin holder, you don´t have to use any adapters.
A new "stopper" attached to the handle cable may be secured in the gray tube to prevent unwanted sounds travelling to the microphone from behind the system when having the mirophone facing the dish center.
The complete kit with the dish folded can be stored in our soft case or most suitcases for travelling with a total weight of aprx. 1.2 Kg (2.5 lbs)
Recommended maximum length for microphones mounted facing the dish = 12 cm / 5 inches.
