RYCOTE MICROPHONE WINDSHIELDS AND SUSPENSIONS - Super-Shield

The Super-Shield Kits are complete windshield and shock mounting systems for shotgun microphones up to 300mm in length.

An updated version of a well-proven Rycote design, this has 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 Rycote patented 'Lyre' suspension isolates the microphone, and together with a captive cable, minimises handling noise. The pods have a twist-lock fixing to allow fast and easy access to the microphone. The kits are available in three lengths. Front and rear pods are available separately for replacement purposes or to use with an existing suspension to fit a larger or smaller microphone.

Suspension

The Super-Shield Suspension provides isolation from shocks and vibrations using the Rycote patented 'Lyre' technology which cuts handling-noise with any axial microphones, without the use of rubbers or elastic. The suspension is suitable for microphones 19mm to 25mm in shaft diameter, using two snap-in, pinch-release' Lyre suspensions, that can be slotted into any of six positions for perfect balance and fit. The suspension is supplied with a highly flexibility, 450mm microphone cable.

Windshield

The Super-Shield Windshield is made up from two 'pods' which attach to the central chassis. They are lightweight, durable baskets made from flexible grey plastic netting with a screening material attached. The windshield has a twist-lock system onto the suspension chassis ring, and when fitted completely surround the whole microphone, connector and suspension. This system creates a still volume of air around the microphone, which provides excellent wind-noise reduction, with minimal high-frequency loss.

Windjammer

The Windjammer is a high-quality, synthetic-fur cover which fits over the windshield and provides 'excellent protection' against extreme wind noise. Hand made in the UK from the 'highest quality materials available', which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, it has 'very little detrimental effect' on the high frequencies in the audio being captured. Windjammers, although included in the kits, are also available separately for use in case of loss or damage or when changing the size of a Super-Shield by swapping the front pod for a different size.

Pods

The rear pod, 010420, is the same for all sizes and is listed for use in case of loss or damage. Small, medium and large pods may be substituted for the pods of a different size, to change, say, a small Super-Shield into a medium or large Super-Shield.

Kits

Each kit contains a suspension with cable and pistol grip, a windshield, consisting of front and rear pods which lock onto a ring around the suspension, and a Windjammer cover.
