Rycote Cyclone Overview

Ideal for a multitude of outdoor ENG, broadcast, and film applications, this medium-sized Cyclone Windshield Kit from Rycote features a two-piece "Z-Locking" basket design that magnetically affixes around your microphone, isolating the mic from wind-caused noise. Up to 50 dB of reduction can be achieved with use of the Cyclone Windshield alone, and >60 dB is possible when used with a Windjammer on top of it. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which reduces reflections from parallel surfaces in the recording environment, providing clean audio recordings during outdoor interviews, location shoots, and more. It's designed to provide wind noise reduction that exceeds traditional modular-style windshield/windjammer combined performance.

The Cyclone introduces a "multi-suspension" design that provides isolation against handling noise, cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. This multi-suspension design inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted, thereby improving recording quality.

The kit includes the Cyclone Suspension fitted with 72-shore Universal Lyres, a Cyclone XLR cable, a large Cyclone Windshield, a pair of Universal Lyres 62-shore for lightweight microphones, and a hex key driver for making adjustments to the Lyres on the suspension.

Suitable Mics:

  • DPA: 4017B, 4018A
  • Neumann: KMR 81i, KMR 81D
  • Rode: NTG-3, NTG-4
  • Sanken: CS-1, CS-2
  • Schoeps: CMC w/Cut 1, CMIT 5U, CMC w/Cut 60
  • Sennheiser: MKH 416, MKH 8060 w/MZF

Is there a size for the Cyclone that will accommodate both an MKH60 and miniCMIT? Or am I better off going for the Modular Windshield?
Asked by: Godofredo
While the Medium Cyclone would work for the miniCMIT, it would be a tight fit for the MKH60. We would recommend going with a Modular Windshield to accommodate both better.

Can the medium size allow the spacing between the 2 shockmounts clost enough to accommodate the Sennheiser 8050 (with additional length of XLR cable at back)?
Asked by: David
The length of the MKH-8050 mic is 2.9". The length of the microphone in the pictures of the Rycote Cyclone is 9.88". Based on this, I surmise that you will have little to no trouble trying to do this.

question

it need a rain cover
Asked by: lee H.
The Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit is not weather resistant. It would be advantageous to have a rain cover such as the the Remote Audio Rainman; B&H# REMRMAN

question

Does this product is compatible with Connbox ? (CB4 for me)
Asked by: Jean-Philippe B.
Yes, however you would need a small L bracket to mount the CB4, as this lifts the Connbox up away from the bar.

question

I understand that the Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit (Small) is supposed to be the appropriate size for a Sennheiser MKH-50, but will the Medium work as well without any downsides?
Asked by: Tony
Hi Tony. Yes, it will be fine: the only real downside is loss of compact profile and a slightly increased weight spec. Wind protection will actually be increased slightly due to larger basket size.

question

it need rain cover
Asked by: lee H.
Hi Lee: thanks for getting in touch with your question. Although the Cyclone is 'weather resistant' (much more so against rain than fur-based solutions) and the 3D-Tex material is very easily dried, it is not waterproof. No windshield can be fully proofed against rain, since it would have to be a perfectly sealed box: and perfectly sealed boxes never sound good! Unfortunately, we don't produce a rain cover for the Cyclone at this time; we do, however, provide a range of Duck rain covers for our Modular range.

Asked by: Renan
Hi there,The black 3D-Tex fabric is an older version that has been discontinued; all current Cyclone models are manufactured using our latest, grey 3D-Tex fabric.
