As part of the Ray Henriksen collection of microphones we have access to a pair of broadcast quality Sennheisers.  They form an Mid-Side pair.  After looking at the cost of the Rycote MS cradles, I decided to have a go at building my own.  Quick trip to the local hardware store, few elastic bands and my wife’s genius suggestion to use the old cafetiere.
