About Rycote... A family-owned company with a history of more than 40 years of innovative design, Rycote has become a synonym for microphone windshields the world over, playing a leading role in this small but significant industry from a quiet corner of Gloucestershire in the UK. Forming an essential part of broadcast and recording technology at the critical point of audio capture, Rycote Microphone Windshields and microphone suspensions are all designed, developed and manufactured in-house, in the UK. For further information, please visit www.rycote.com


Measuring wind-noise performance Modular Windshield Kit performance graph

Wind-noise reduction is difficult to characterise - the figure depends upon many factors including frequency, the type and size of microphone used, and even the wind itself. Rycote is known for making realistic measurements and quoting honest, conservative results. The figures given here - attenuation @ 100Hz - are the result of tests using a Schoeps CMC641 microphone under laboratory conditions. Full spectrum graphs are publicly available at www.rycote.com


Full Windshield Kit Windshield Rating: MAX

Shock Rating: MAX

The Full Windshield Kit is the professional’s choice when it comes to achieving maximum isolation from wind and handling noise. Consisting of a Modular Suspension, Modular Windshield, Windjammer, Pistol Grip and Connbox, this complete Modular System allows for varying levels of windshielding, achieving up to 50dB (100Hz)* wind-noise attenuation, whilst minimizing any high frequency loss. Stereo Windshield Kits are also available to fit a wide range of stereo pairs, single shank stereo microphones, and stereo-capsule microphones.

Modular Suspension & Connbox Shock Rating: MAX Featuring Rycote’s patented Lyre suspension webs, our Modular Suspensions provide second-to-none isolation against handling and cable-borne noises, whilst always keeping a firm grip on the microphone. Made of Hytrel, the Lyre suspensions are virtually unbreakable, and since they do not use any elastic or rubber components never need replacing or re-threading. A Connbox is fitted as standard to Small and Medium Suspensions in Windshield Kits 1 to 6, to allow for maximum reduction of unwanted noise by breaking the transmission path of cable-borne noises. The comfortable pistol-grip handle allows for hand-held use of the suspension, but also features a 3/8� adaptor for quick and easy fitting directly to a boom pole Lyre suspension webs Connbox 1 fitted with 3-pin XLR cable

Modular Windshield & Windjammer Windshield Rating: MAX Designed to provide excellent wind-noise attenuation with minimal high-frequency loss, the Modular Windshield is a lightweight, durable basket design, offering 37dB (100Hz)* wind-noise attenuation when used on its own - without a Windjammer. First introduced by Rycote in 1987, the Windjammer is a highquality synthetic fur cover, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield to give an additional 13dB (100Hz) of wind noise attenuation. Achieving a total of 50dB (100Hz)* wind-noise attenuation with little high-frequency loss, the Windjammer allows for an excellent standard of audio recordings even in very high wind conditions.

Baby Ball Gag Windshield Rating: MAX Designed to slip directly onto the body of a microphone, Baby Ball Gags (BBG) use basket windshield techniques to give much better wind-noise performance and acoustic transparency than a foam-style windshield. Windjammer covers are also available to fit the BBGs for maximum wind protection. The mics can then be shock-mounted with a Lyre suspension, making them suitable for low-profile boom applications as well as for hand-held operations and interviews. The Ball Gag consists of two halves that can be separated to fit microphones with a ball-head or tapered body (max head diameter: 60mm; max body diameter: 25mm) and are also widely used with ORTF or NOS microphone pairs.

Softie Kit Windshield Rating: MEDIUM Shock Rating: HIGH Including a Softie windshield, Lyre shock-mount, Pistol-Grip handle and 40cm Mogami cable, the Softie Kit provides a simple, robust and cost-effective windshielding and shock-mounting solution for the tough environment of modern day ENG and location recording.

The Softie Windshield is a slip-on, cavity foam windshield with integral fur cover. Designed to offer up to 36dB (100Hz)* wind-noise attenuation with very little high-frequency loss, the Softie has now become a world-wide standard in the broadcast industry. The Softie Lyre Mount is a complete shock-mount using the patented Lyre system to provide isolation against handling and cable-borne noises. The holding clip accepts microphones from 19 to 25mm diameter and features a moulded-in soft-feel grip to prevent the microphone from slipping or twisting. The Pistol-Grip can also be fitted on a boom-pole thanks to an integrated 3/8� thread adaptor.


Product Variations To work effectively, a slip-on windshield must cover all the ports of the mic. Please choose the windshield size accordingly (a 12cm slip-on windshield being suitable for a shotgun mic with slots no further than 12cm from the front of the mic). The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight to achieve a good seal. Softie windshields come in two diameter fittings, Standard (19-22 mm) and Large (24-25 mm).

Smoothie Windshield Rating: MEDIUM

Using a cavity foam core covered by a thin acoustic foam outer skin, these fun slip-on windshields offer 36 dB (100Hz)* of windnoise reduction with far less adverse effect on high-frequency sounds than with a standard foam windshield. The foam has been specifically engineered for Rycote and is extremely resistant to UV and moisture damage, giving these windshields great longevity. The Smoothies are available in a wide range of colours and Rycote also offers the option of logo printing, allowing you to stand out from the crowd and showcase your brand anywhere you go.

InVision Studio Shock Rating: MAX


InVision™ Universal Studio Mount Shock Rating: MAX The InVision™ Studio, or Universal Studio Mount (USM), is the latest addition to the Rycote InVision range of microphone shockmounts, and is designed to accommodate any large-diaphragm side-address microphone from 18 to 55 mm in diameter. Using the patented Lyre technology, the USM can offer up to 12dB better attenuation of unwanted vibrations – that’s four times in terms of sound pressure level – compared to many conventional “cat’s cradle” elasticated microphone mounts. Stand and cable-borne noise just disappears. Made of Hytrel, the Lyres are virtually indestructible; and as the USM uses no elastics, it will never sag or need re-threading.

Shock Rating: MAX

The InVision™ Studio Kit is a complete suspension and pop filter system, which combines the Universal Studio Mount (USM) with a new Universal Pop Filter to make a complete vocal microphone suspension and pop filter system that will accommodate virtually any microphone. The Pop Filter is designed to lock tightly on the USM’s outer support ring, where it can be left while mics are quickly and easily swapped in the USM. Rycote’s Studio Kit is fast and easy to use, and has also proved harder-wearing, more vibration-resistant and better at protecting your mic from vocal pops and thumps without high-frequency loss, than any traditional elasticated microphone suspensions. If you record vocals, you owe it to yourself to try one!

Universal Camera Kit Windshield Rating: MEDIUM The Universal Camera Kit is the essential all-in-one kit for videographers looking to minimize wind and handling noise whilst filming outside using camera-mounted shotgun or rifle microphones. The kit provides excellent shock-mounting thanks to the InVision Video suspension, as well as excellent windshielding from the Rycote Miniscreen™ and Windjammer.

The rigid, blimp-like Miniscreen™ and Miniscreen™ Windjammer fur cover provide discreet, slip-on windshielding, offering a total of 36dB (100Hz)* wind-noise reduction, with a minimum of high-frequency loss as you’d expect from a Rycote. The InVision™ Video Mount uses Lyre suspension webs to provide the ultimate protection against vibration caused by handling and camera motors. This flexible shock-mount is fitted with a Hot-Shoe fixture, but also comes with a ¼” male-to-female thread adaptor and 3/8” Boom Swivel for use with a boom-pole and a Camera Clamp Adaptor for Sony & Canon cameras.

InVision Video Shock Rating: HIGH

The InVision™ Video Mount is a versatile microphone shockmount for use with video cameras, camcorders, booms and mic stands. Using the patented Lyre technology, the InVision Video Mount provides excellent isolation from vibrations caused by handling and camera motors. The clamp is designed to hold microphones from 19 to 25mm diameter, and also features a “soft-feel” grip moulded into the clip to prevent any twisting or slipping of the microphone. The InVision Video Mount is available with either a Hot Shoe adaptor, or a 1/4” thread adaptor.


Audio Recorder Suspension Shock Rating: HIGH A new Lyre-based suspension for portable recorders, the suspension has been designed to offer excellent isolation from vibrations, shocks and handling noise. Featuring the new 1/4” to 3/8” Swivel Adaptor, the suspension will suit any portable recorder with a 1/4” female thread. The suspension can then be mounted on a 3/8” male thread, mic stand or boom pole, or be attached to a camera hot shoe. The 180° swivel allows for easy orientation of the recorder so it can point in the exact direction of the speaker.

Foam Windshields Windshield Rating: LOW

Small Diaphragm Mic Foams Shotgun Mic Foam Made of durable, high quality open-cell acoustic foam, our foam windshields offer useful wind-noise attenuation where light breezes or air movement is a problem, whilst keeping high frequency loss to a minimum. Engineered exclusively for Rycote, this high quality foam has excellent resistance to the damaging effects of moisture and UV light. Foam Windshields are available for most microphones, from compact, small-diaphragm reporters’ models to broadcast and film-sound shotguns, large-diaphragm recording microphones and even personal, lavalier microphones. All our Foam Windshields can also be fitted with an additional Foam Windjammer which may add as much as 20dB extra wind-noise attenuation, depending upon size.

Stickies Windshield Rating: N/A

Shock Rating: N/A

Stickies are double-sided adhesive pads, used to affix personal microphones directly onto the skin and clothing, or even musical instruments and furniture. The pads are sandwiched with a soft fabric to prevent the mount from creaking when the mic is attached. The materials used are hypoallergenic and the adhesive does not transfer to clothes, polished surfaces or microphone grilles.

Undercovers Windshield Rating: LOW Undercovers have been specifically designed for use with personal mics under clothing. Using Stickies to affix the microphone, a soft fabric disc is then added on top to minimise the sounds of clothing rustle and low wind noise. Undercover packs contain Stickies and fabric discs; they are available in white, grey and black colours.

Aluminium & Carbon Fibre Boom Poles Rycote now offers a range of Aluminium and Carbon Fibre Boom Poles. From 2.50m long, 5-section Boom Poles, available as coiled or non-coiled, to shorter 3-section Boom Poles, Rycote Boom Poles are the first choice for professionals. Featuring the same lightweight patented triple-cam ‘grip and twist’ locking system as the original A5 poles, and with no metal parts to add to their weight, the new G3 and G5 combine lightweight construction with great tensile strength. As on the A3 and A5, the locking mechanism is designed to be resistant to jamming when the pole is dirty; however, if necessary, the locking collars can be completely stripped down for cleaning in the field if required.
