Anyone have any idea what this screen may be?

That looks similar to the screens Sennheiser and AKG used to make for their mics.
The Sennheiser one for the MD421 was round on the outside with the tv shaped opening to fit over the mic.
AKG used to make one similar to what's in the picture which also came with a similar screen that fit over the mic body.
They were plastic or fiberglass in construction with several layers of screening material inside.
This was in the '60's and 70's.
I have not seen one since then.index.php/fa/15218/0/

I own one of these original 1960's wind screens. They look bulky and impervious to sound, but are surprisingly transparent in actual use. Still no match for a good popper stopper.

As to the Pauly: As it was distributed by the same company as the KHE I was asked to test it.  At the time, I did not like it as much as my primitive home-made crochet job. Despite flange holes, there was noticeable comb filtering which I attributed to the mesh material and its positioning.

For many years before the "We Are The World" panty hose thing came about I would use 2 mics. One was the dummy right out in front of the talent, the other was the real mic off at a slight angle to avoid direct breath pops.

That works very well without any filtration effects from air stoppers. Once a mic is out 6 inches it makes little tonal difference if it's slightly off axis from the direct air flow.

Does anyone know about this mic protection? It is a pretty big protection for indoor recording, isn't it?
What is your guess what the mic is?index.php/fa/15227/0/
It is a Tony Williams shot on a Van Gelder session, by the way.

I may be wrong, but I think Rudy Van Gelder used Schoeps M221b sdc mics... so it may be them with a windscreen?

I'm back to the home made crochet job with two knee highs around it.  

Side note on 221b's.  LOVE those mics.  They have reach and force.  IF I think of Tony Williams drum sound I can picture 221b's.  I could use them 6 feet away and it would sound like a close mic with a throaty punch to it still.  The connectors made our pair unbearable and impossible to use eventually.
