Las Vegas, NV (April 13, 2010)–Tascam is debuting a line of windscreens and cases for its DR-series portable recorders at NAB.
The new DR-680 gets the CS-680 case, custom-designed with velcro flaps to cover unneeded jacks. A clear plastic flap on top protects the multichannel recorder from mist and other weather conditions, and a front pocket is provided for carrying extra batteries and SD cards. The case is compatible with the shoulder strap that’s included with the DR-680.
Another new case, the CS-DR2, is designed for the DR-2d recorder. The folding panels on this case can be arranged to prop the DR-2d at an angle for tabletop recording or playback.
Also for the DR-2d, the WS-DR2 windscreen uses artificial fur to block wind gusts from the internal mics. This deluxe windscreen also fits the DR-1, GT-R1 and DR-07 recorders.
The DR-08 gains a pair of windscreens with WS-DR08. Since the DR-08 microphones can be arranged either together or spread apart, the kit includes foam screens for either alignment.
