The large hole Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is ideal for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG, and more. The 18cm Super-Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. It's robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. Also, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.
Fits these and similar sized mics:
- Sennheiser MKH 60
- Sony ECM 672
||For mics 0.94 - 0.98" (24 - 25 mm) in diameter
For mics slots no further than 7.1" (18 cm) from the front of the mic
||Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter.
For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 18 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 18 cm from the front of the mic.
The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings: Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm), or Large (24-25 mm).
