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.

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 ...

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.

question

waht is most motch raincover with this?
Asked by: kosuke y.
Hi there. Thanks for your question! Rycote currently doesn't provide a rain cover for the Cyclone. The unique 3D-Tex fabric used in the Cyclone's construction provides good performance in wet conditions, but is not waterproof (only water resistant). We do provide a range of Duck rain covers for our Modular range, which offer rain protection above the basket. See here: <a href= http://www.mymic.rycote.com/producttypes/duck-raincover/. target= _blank >http://www.mymic.rycote.com/producttypes/duck-raincover/.</a> I hope that helps!

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.

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.
