• High immunity to rain-soaking Rycote has made wind protection for microphones for more than 40 years combining expertise experience and passion to develop windshields and accessories for microphones.

RRP $330 sofite only

Rycote Super-Shield

The Super-Shield Kit is a complete windshield and shock mounting system for shotgun microphones up to 300mm in length. It can be used where a fully featured windshield isn't necessary i.e. for sports, video, ENG work.

The Super-Shield is the updated version of a well-proven Rycote design - a rigid basket windshield that totally encloses the microphone for the best wind noise reduction. The central chassis supports a range of "pods" in lengths to fit almost all location-style microphones, and provides for good aerodynamic balance and adjustment of centre-of-mass balance.
The patented Lyre suspension isolates the microphone, and together with a captive cable, minimises handling noise. The pods have a fast-to-use twist-lock fixing to allow easy access to the microphone.
RRP $770
