Microphones My De Luxe version of Pete Thomas' DIY clip-on Realistic Electret microphone

So, I decided to copy Pete's DIY clip-on mic (http://tamingthesaxophone.com/saxoph...pon-microphone) and purchased a Realistic Electret 33-1063 Tie Pin microphone on the Bay.
My idea was to spend a little more on the materials in my attempt to make it look more "pro".

At Thomann I found the 17£ "Superlux PRA-383 Replacement Clamp" (http://www.thomann.de/dk/superlux_pr...zhalterung.htm) which had the gooseneck and the clip, I was looking for. The clip is originally adapted for trumpet but mounts perfect on the sax.

The Realistic Electret Tie Pin comes with a "needle clip" (or what ever it's called) for attaching to clothes (like a earstick).
This is perfect for mounting the mic on the Superlux clamp. I just drilled a small hole and stuck in the needle.
I put in a little sticky tack (I would have used Sugru but was short of that) between the clamp and the clip to stabilize.

I also considered mounting the microphone reverse in a small cheap foam windscreen and just squeeze it into the two rings on the clamp

Actually I have not tested it yet :)
I totally relied upon Pete's review and the sound clips on his web site, where he compares it to other mics

Well - I ended up paying a little more for the Realistic Electret 33-1063 Tie Pin microphone than Pete did.
Included shipping to Denmark it costed med £31.
£17 for the Superlux PRA-383 Replacement Clamp - so all in all £48.
Still not expensive though

This Audio Technica mount may be another good option. It looks like the wind screen is included, but I'm not positive.
