    Don't need the blimp? I think you may have just been lucky. Turn the gain up on an interference tube mic in anything other than very light breeze and the result can be a hurricane. Why do you think people spend the fortune they do on wind protection. Indoors, you can get away with it, but even moving one of these indoors in still air can sound noisy. Foam on the end is pointless - the mic element is at the handle end - the tube is empty!

    The only place a shotgun mic with a bit of foam on the end is any good for recording is about 100 miles space.
