WINDSHIELDS

RYCOTE CLASSIC-SOFTIE WINDSHIELDS      

Slip-On Furry Windgags for Encapsulating Microphones against Wind Noise

Rycote Classic-Softie Slip-On Windgags

Rycote Classic-Softie Kit (includes InVision Lyre Mount & Grip)

 

The Classic-Softie Windshield provides a quick, simple, robust and cost effective windshield for the tough environment of modern day ENG and location recording.

The Classic-Softie Windshield is a slip-on open-cell foam, with integral fur cover. It will reduce wind-noise and protect your mic. Still the worldwide industry standard in TV and news gathering. Only bettered by Rycote's new Super-Softie (see below).

 

Both the acoustic foam and synthetic fur are made from materials which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, and as a result up to 25 dB of wind-noise reduction without any adverse effect on High-Frequency. In addition the foam is not susceptible to UV or moisture damage, giving this product great longevity.

Advanced materials, adhesives and assembly techniques all combine to make the Classic-Softie an extremely tough product that provides excellent wind protection in the harshest of environments.

Classic-Softie windshields are available in a large range of sizes to fit most popular shotgun microphones. We offer the most popular three sizes here, to fit the shotgun microphones we offer, Classic-Softie can be purchased either on its own, or as part of a Kit, which includes a Windshield, Lyre shock-mount and Pistol-grip.

 

Please ask if you'd like us to provide you with any other Classic-Softie size not shown.

RYCOTE SUPER-SOFTIE WINDSHIELDS    

Slip-On 3D-Tex Windgags for Encapsulating Microphones against Wind Noise

Rycote Super-Softie Slip-On Windgags

Rycote Super-Softie Kit (includes InVision Lyre Mount & Grip)


Here's a thing... after years of those slightly rude and amusing furry windgags (see Classic-Softies above), the reduction of wind can now be achieved even better if you use a new material Rycote have come up with, called 3D-Tex, instead of a dead sheep. So now they've gone and made a range of new Super-Softies to slip onto your microphones when the wind blows.

 

What? No fur? No indeed - none. Because this new-fangled 3D-Tex they're using actually does the job of reducing the intrusive rumble of wind noise even better than fur, whilst also enabling the audio that you do want to hear to sound better and more natural than that picked up by a conventional furry windshield.

 

The Super-Softie therefore combines superb wind noise reduction with excellent acoustic transparency. Less rumble, more intelligible.

It has no rigid internal structure, so causes virtually no polar pattern distortion and is extremely robust in challenging environments such as news-gathering. If it becomes rain-soaked it can be squeezed out and shaken dry very quickly. If it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.


So there we have it. Super-Softie's shape & structure enables it to reduce wind noise at extreme LF and infrasonic frequencies (where the greatest wind energy lies) much more efficiently than previous designs. And it's not subtle - you can really hear the difference.
