From the looks of it, The Piece-A-Fur simply looks like a piece of fur in a bag. Almost identical to an overgrown URSA Straps Fur Circles, Rycote Overcovers, or even the Bubblebee version of Wind Protection called Fur Covers. Even with all of these different options available, the Piece-A-Fur has an interesting application. Their purpose? Wind, surely. But can they be used for more? Absolutely!
The Piece-Of-Fur (which comes in multiple colors: Black, White, Off-White, Grey, Brown, Beige) is made of a high-quality imitation fur. It is thick, soft, and durable, with a porous back material on the other side which allows sound frequencies through while using dense, soft fur to deaden friction and reduce wind noise. This combination of using an open base material with dense, high-quality fur sets the Piece-A-Fur apart and can help improve your recordings greatly.

The Piece-A-Fur gives you the opportunity to play with a piece of our specially produced wind protection faux-fur yourself. It’s lush. You simply cut out the Piece-a-Fur in the desired size and shape and use it when mounting a microphone.
This might come in handy if you work with uneven or problematic surfaces like a hairy chest that creates friction noise when recording. It is one of the many topics covered in our Wiring Talent Masterclass here on VideoMantis.com
