Rycote 086017 Modular Windshield WS 9 Kit (no CB)
The Modular Windshield WS 9 kit is suitable for use with compact condenser mics when used with remote or active cables such as Schoeps CCM range (lemo) and Sennheiser MKH8000 range (MZL). Please note, this product is not supplied with a Connbox.
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 WS 9 Kit offers a unique and highly effective solution for compact condenser microphones requiring wind protection and maximum shock isolation. It completely surrounds the compact microphone, sliding onto the XX-Small Suspension to provide up to 25dB of wind noise attenuation. The wind attenuation performance is equivalent to a Rycote full sized Windshield yet in a much smaller and lighter package – only 170mm x 105mm including end caps.
High quality synthetic fur-cover Windjammer for WS 9 provides the highest possible protection against extreme wind-noise. When using a Windjammer fitted over a Windshield up to 35 dB of windnoise attenuation can be achieved, producing excellent exterior audio recordings.

Max Wind-noise Attenuation: 35 dB
Finding the correct Windshield Kit will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone.
Because the whole microphone is encased in a windshield basket the total length of the microphone including the XLR cable must be accounted for, this means adding 50mm to the length of the mic.
For a windshield to work effectively the microphone should be mounted centrally within the windshield, therefore the microphone + XLR length should approximately equal the windshield body length. The body length of our windshields is the total length, excluding end caps.
