Rycote Modular Windshield WS 4 Kit (XLR-5F)
The Modular Windshield WS 4 Kit (XLR-5F) from Rycote provides you with the accessories needed to prevent or isolate your microphone from up to 50 dB of wind and handling noise. It can be used in various outdoor environments, when maximum isolation from wind and handling noise is required, including such audio applications as weddings, outdoor and water sports, boating, and more. The WS 4 Kit features a modular suspension with pistol grip, a windshield, and a windjammer. Also featured are a boom pole adapter, a CB4 Connbox, and an XLR holder.
The microphone fits on the modular suspension and attaches to the Connbox. The windshield fits onto the suspension and is enclosed around the mic. The fuzzy windjammer then fits over the windshield. This completely modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted. Two Duo-Lyre suspension webs, a brush, and a hex head key are included.
Complete isolation is provided against handling noise and cable-borne noises. It also supports the microphone in a cradle using Lyre suspension webs.
The windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector. It slides onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30 dB of wind noise attenuation.
The Windjammer is a synthetic fur cover that is designed to fit over the Modular Windshield, providing an additional 20 dB of wind noise attenuation. It is fitted with a drawstring and toggle for easily fitting on the mic.
