Back to the SPL damage... I'm now thinking I might have been OK using the little foam windshield... dang...
Funny thing - that windshield seems to "wrap around" the head of the mic, whereas most windshields just sit like a cap on the front of the mic. Maybe it is designed to address a sensitivity to "backwash" or whatever.

I must stress that I don't own an 88 and never experienced a problem personally. But I was considering buying one, and in my research, the numbers of reports of people blowing them up was enough to make me re-think it.
