Rycote S-Series 450 Windshield Kit

B&H # RYSS450 Mfr # 010304
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • Fits Microphones Measuring 14-16" (355-410mm) Long

The Rycote S-Series Windshield and Suspension Kits are a complete redesign of the famed Modular Series. The S-Series introduces a redesigned windshield, suspension mount, pistol grip and a new break-resistant construction that is sure to endure rigorous use.

The system consists of a chassis-ring, steel spine, two one-piece web suspension mounts, pistol grip and two windshield tube halves that are carefully paired to provide up to four available kit lengths. The S-Series Kits are designed to accommodate microphones that measure 3/4 to 1" (19mm to 25mm) in diameter, and this kit will fit microphone between 14-16" (355-410mm) long.

The Rycote S-Series Windshield and Suspension Kit is an all-in-one solution to field microphone wind and shock protection and even the XLR cable is included.

S-Series Windshield
The S-Series Windshield features an integral acoustic fur covering that results in greater than 30dB wind noise suppression. Two windscreen "Pod" halves twist-lock to the chassis ring and are carefully paired to provide up to four kit sizes.
Steel Reinforced Structure
A steel-reinforced spine mounts the chassis ring and web suspension mounts. The steel spine provides an ultra-rigid support for all the parts in the system.
Versatile Chassis Ring
The chassis ring is used to mount the two windshield halves and may be demounted when only a web suspension mount is required.
Snap-in Web Suspension
Revolutionary one-piece web suspension elements require no suspension elastic bands or rubber parts. The web suspension provides excellent noise suppression against movement and shock. The pinch-release design provides an easy mount onto the steel spine.
Lightweight Pistol Grip Handle
The redesigned pistol grip features soft-feel grips for maximum comfort and a 3/8" female thread attachment for use on boom poles or mic stands.

        We just finished our first shoot using the new windshield, it worked great.
        No complaints at all. I would suggest it to anybody looking for an inexpensive, durable windshield.

        I use this as my wind protection and shock mount for indie shorts that I shoot. Great value overall. This would get a 5 star rating, but it is a bit on the heavy side

        Comments about Rycote S-Series 450 Windshield Kit:

        This windshield kit does exactly what you need it to do to get professional results while recording audio in windy conditions. The blimp is completely sealed when you twist the housing pieces together and you never have to worry about the furry cover coming off or getting lost when you're rushing to set up on location. The added XLR cable makes connection extremely simple...just click in your breakout cable or wireless transmitter and go! This is the big daddy of the professional windscreens for professional audio technicians. It's dialed in with features, yet still reasonably lightweight even on a long boom pole or while using the hand-held pistol grip.

        It's a bit pricey by comparison to the lower grade windscreens, but you get what you pay for, and this a good price from B&H. Get it!

        Does what it's suppose to do. Only thing I don't like is how big it is, but that's not really an issue with it as much as it's just the nature of the beast. But, like I said it does what it's suppose to do.

                I am an Intermediate Sound Designer. This Zeppelin is well designed for the price. I have tested it with the AT 835b in 25 mph wind. Works splendidly. The only down-side would be the permanence of the furry to the zeppelin.

                  I use this set up for our documentaries, interviews and well... all of our video work and it works like a charm. I just started with it and haven't had a chance to put it to the test under extreme wind - but so far it has done its job.
