I just wanted to write and tell you how PLEASED I am with my Redhead Windscreen purchase. I recently purchased a Redhead from you and used it for my first time on a senior project I shot for school. Wind noise was nearly impossible to pick up on my Zoom H4N in the infield of Charlotte Motorspeedway on a very windy day. Instead of getting wind interference while trying to pick up audio of racing cars passing by, I got crisp clear audio of what I wanted…and I was even able to pick up squeaks from the suspensions as some cars slowly drove by!! I am very impressed and am completely happy with my purchase. Feel free to use this email as a testimonial on your site! Thanks again!
Much Mahalo’s to Neil Holloman, wildly talented drummer, for the Redhead lovin : ) I’ll let his talent speak for itself in the following clip. To learn more about Neil, check out his site.
Neils Bio :
” I started playing drums in 1993 in the school band which afforded me the incredible opportunity to be immersed in percussion under my long time friend and teacher, John Dunlap. While in school, I was a member of the Scholastic Concert Bronze Medalist, Paragon, at the 1998 WGI World Championships. I have since performed in numerous rock and fusion bands in Mississippi and Alabama, and Independent Indoor Marching Percussion with Cynosure (Pensacola, FL). I also have experience playing drums and percussion in Musical Theatre. While at the University of South Alabama, I performed with the Jazz Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Pep Band and Symphony Band.

This is the stuff that makes me smile ! A little over a year ago Redhead Windscreens simply did not exist and today I open an email from a happy customer that has just used his 5D2,H4n, and Redhead combo to capture some fantastic behind-the-scenes making-of footage on the latest Lexus commercial.. All I have to say is well done Adam.. Geesh, great audio, beautiful cars and cameras make Kalani a happy camper.. CREATE – COMPLETE and enjoy this sweet little piece !
Adam coins himself as being a “hybrid artist” : ), love it.. The following is an excerpt from his website.
What is Hybrid Art ?
Hybrid Art refers to today’s hybrid and trans disciplinary projects and approaches to media art. Primary emphasis is on the process of fusing different media and genres into new forms of artistic expression as well as the act of transcending the boundaries between art and research, art and social/political activism, art and pop culture. Today’s artists are free to make art with whatever material or technique they can imagine. This freedom creates new opportunities to express ideas and concepts. It also opens up a number of challenges, choices, and new decisions for artists, thus ultimately opening the door for an innovational new future. This series of events, advancements, & obstacles all birthed the “Hybrid Artist” at Maker&theMaDe.
