Guess What Just Buzzed into DVeStore.....

Posted by

It's small like a bubble; fuzzy like a bee; okay, it doesn't buzz but it sure could block it! Did you guess? 

It's a bubblebee!

Bubblebee Windbubbles currently have a 75% market share in lavalier wind protection in Denmark. Their next mission-destination: The World.   We dug a little deeper into the company to see where these creative bubbles started and how the demand grew to needing an entire island for production.

Bubblebee Windbubbles are the by product of two men's mission to create the world's best Lavalier microphone wind protection. With over 20 years experience as a field sound recorder, Poul Mejer, teamed up with design technologist, Kath Sondergaard, to create a wind bubble that would challenge existing wind protection. 

Total diameter

Poul and Kath spent years sitting around their coffee table designing, testing and developing wind bubbles for their own use. Lo and behold: The Bubblebee Windbubble for Lavalier Microphones. These bad boys are taking over the market in 4 different colors including black, brown, grey and white- or as "the Family" would address- Mister Black, Miss Brown, Mister Grey and Miss White. That's right, they have names! They have a waistline too, each family member is available in 4 different sizes.

Mister Grey Bubblebee

CUB-01

Bubblebee was kind enough to create the CUB brothers (named Orville and Wilbur) who were designed specifically for the Sanken CUB-01. 

The packaging for these is a small, round, metal case. It's about the size of a lip balm container so it's not only efficient in protecting your windshields but it's convenient too.

  

The price for each model is about $35, while the CUB runs at $50. The model key below makes it easy to find the size that's right for you - simply choose your color and welcome your new family member to the crew ;)
