Ideal for a multitude of outdoor ENG, broadcast, and film applications, the Cyclone Windshield Kit fromRycote features a two-piece “Z-Locking” basket design that magnetically affixes around your microphone, isolating the mic from wind-caused noise. Up to 50 dB of reduction can be achieved with use of the Cyclone Windshield alone, and >60 dB is possible when used with a Windjammer on top of it. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which reduces reflections from parallel surfaces in the recording environment, to provide clean audio recordings during outdoor interviews, location shoots, and more. It’s designed to provide wind noise reduction that exceeds traditional modular-style windshield/windjammer combined performance.
The Cyclone introduces a “multi-suspension” design that provides isolation against handling noise, cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. This multi-suspension design inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted and thereby improves recording quality.
The kit includes the Cyclone Suspension fitted with 72-shore Universal Lyres, fitted Cyclone XLR cable, large Cyclone Windshield, pair of Universal Lyres 62-shore for lightweight microphones, and a hex key driver for making adjustments to the Lyres on the suspension.
