Rycote Modular Windshield Kit 2
The Modular Windshield WS 2 Kit is suitable for small diaphragm condenser microphones from 121mm up to 160mm in length.
- Flexible, complete windshield and suspension package, which provides varying levels of windshielding for numerous microphone configurations.
- The iconic Windshield Kit is the industry standard, and leads the way in windshielding and suspension technology.
The Modular Windshield Kit is the professionals' choice when maximum isolation from wind and handling noise is required.
This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Components may be ordered separately, or as one of a series of kits, which simplify the selection process for many common configurations.A Modular Windshield Kit is comprised of the following three main components: Modular Suspension, Modular Windshield and Windjammer.
Our suspensions provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, by supporting the microphone in a cradle arrangement using Lyre suspension webs.
The Windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector, sliding onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation. This is the first layer of windshielding protection for your microphone.
The Windjammer introduced by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic fur covers, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. Fitted with a drawstring & toggle to allow snug and easy fitting. Modular Windshield Kits, including zipped Windjammer are also available on request.

Rycote Connbox CB4 (XLR-5F)
The Connbox has been designed to isolate and greatly reduce handling and cable-borne noise to the microphone. Connbox CB4 is suitable for single shank stereo microphones with 5-pin XLR.
- Isolates and minimises handling and cable-borne noise
- Greatly improves audio quality of recordings
- A ready-to-use solution to connection problems
An effective and ready-to-use solution to connection problems, the Connbox will enable professional sound recorders to achieve clean, high quality audio recordings.
Acting as a transition connector and anchor point for the microphone tail, the lengths of cable are set to work perfectly with the microphone fitted in the windshield, without touching the internal surface of the basket. The soft cable then greatly reduces the transmission path of cable-borne noise, thus further reducing cable rumble.
The Connbox is made of the highest quality components, using Gold 5-pin Neutrik X-series XLR connectors, and an ultra soft Mogami star-quad cable.

Rycote Duo Lyre 68 Shore with Stereo Risers (19/34)
This is a duo lyre suspension with stereo risers specifically for the Rycote Stereo Windshields.
The Rycote Duo lyre system can be used to replace a single pair of lyres on a Rycote Modular Wind Shield system. This is useful for the Windshield kits that only come with single lyres such as the WS 2 kit. Any microphone with a diameter over 25mm will need to be used with a Duo Lyre system. (The single lyre will work with microphones of a diameter up to 25mm.)
The patented Lyre are extremely robust, and virtually unbreakable, as they do not use no elastic or rubber components which are prone to wear and tear. These completely backward compatible Lyre have replaced the original silicone O-rings suspension, and can be bought separately to upgrade older suspensions.
The Lyre has now been enhanced further with a soft-grip internal surface on the mic clip. The soft-grip helps prevent the mic twisting or slipping, and stops the clip scratching the surface of the microphones which are powder-coated.
