Walking with SASS

Is it possible to use a large, bulky SASS for field recordings while on the move? I decided to find out by taking some soundwalks in the busy streets of Krakow, armed with a handmade wooden SASS and a pair of AT4022 microphones, based on the design by Rob Danielson. Despite the size and weight of the setup, I managed to keep the SASS steady on a tripod and wire it to a Mixpre3II, which I carried in my backpack while walking. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the recordings turned out to be completely free from any unwanted handling noise. Check out the results for yourself!
