The Reinhardt SoftZep Mk2

When the original Soft-Zep was introduced to the market in September 2007 the Reinhardt Soft-Zep was nothing short of a revolution in simplicity, design and performance.

We have listened to our customers and have developed the Soft-Zep MKII. By utilising Reinhardts Whisper technology and optimising production techniques we have been able to substantially reduce the price and weight (390gm) of the Soft-Zep MK2 so that it is the most cost effective blimp on the market which makes it ideal for schools and colleges.

The open cell foam core that we now use, is much more acoustically transparent than the earlier Soft-Zep models. The MK2 uses a special light weight acoustic foam with a very coarse pitch which effectively creates a cavity, fundamental for effective windshield performance and yet simultaneously minimises high frequency attenuation. The MK2 has a larger diameter than the original SoftZep for improved windnoise reduction.

The MK2 is lightweight, robust and simple to use and has a permanently mounted high quality fur windcover and a very comfortable hand grip made from Kraton rubber with soft gel inserts. For ease of use, the microphone is simply inserted into the rear of the Soft-Zep MK2 in the same way as a "Whisper".

A Rainhat is also available for the SoftZep Mk.2
