Modular Windshield WS 4 Kit

The Modular Windshield 4 Kit is suitable for shotgun microphones from 211mm up to 280mm in length and 19-34mm diameter with a 3-pin XLR connector such as the Sennheiser MKH 416, MKH 60 and Schoeps CMIT 5.

Key Features:

  • Flexible, complete windshield and suspension package
  • 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
  • Ideal for popular mics such as Sennheiser MKH 416 and Schoeps CMIT 5U

The Modular Windshield Kit is the professionals' choice when maximum isolation from wind and handling noise is required.
This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Components may be ordered separately, or as one of a series of kits, which simplify the selection process for many common configurations.
A Modular Windshield Kit is comprised of the following three main components: Modular Suspension, Modular Windshield and Windjammer.

Modular Suspension

Rycote's suspensions provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, by supporting the microphone in a cradle arrangement using Lyre suspension webs.


The Windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector, sliding onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation. This is the first layer of windshielding protection for your microphone.


The Windjammer introduced by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic fur covers, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. Fitted with a drawstring & toggle to allow snug and easy fitting. Modular Windshield Kits, including zipped Windjammer are also available on request.
