Rycote XLR-5 Modular Windshield 3 Kit provides you with the accessories needed to prevent or isolate your mic from up to 50dB of wind and handling noise. Features a modular suspension with pistol grip, a windshield, and a windjammer. Also featured are a boom pole adapter, a CB4 Connbox, and an XLR holder.

The microphone fits on the modular suspension and attaches to the Connbox. The windshield fits on the suspension and is enclosed around the mic. The fuzzy windjammer then fits over the windshield.

This completely modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted. Two Duo-Lyre suspension webs, a brush, and a Hex head key are included.

It provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises. It also supports the microphone in a cradle using Lyre suspension webs. The windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector. It slides onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation.

The Windjammer is a synthetic fur cover that is designed to fit over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. It is fitted with a drawstring and a toggle for easily fitting on the mic.

The Windjammer presented by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic leather cases, designed to fit perfectly on the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20 dB of attenuation of wind noise. Rycote XLR-5 Modular Windshield 3 Kit equipped with a cord and a lever to allow a comfortable and easy adjustment.

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.
