The Rycote Stereo Cyclone MS Kit 1 is a windshield system offering acoustically transparent protection for location sound mixers and recordists using a mid-side array of Schoeps CCM microphones in broadcast TV, film, video, and game audio production. It features an enhanced Connbox design with no straight or parallel surfaces to reduce room tone and resonance. Its Lyre mic suspension and Floating Basket Suspension improve vibration isolation and minimize handling noise.
The 3D-Tex material delivers significant attenuation of wind noise while being easy to clean. Further contributing to the system's low maintenance is the magnetic locking design, which allows one-handed opening and closure. The LEMO inputs match the connectivity of your Schoeps CCM microphones, and the XLR 5-pin output contributes to effective cable management. Boompole compatibility is offered via a brass 3/8" UNC female thread.

Lyre and Floating Basket Suspension
The Lyre principle is incorporated into the portions of the suspension that connect directly to the basket; the entire structure "floats", isolating problematic internal vibrations originating from boompoles and other sources.
Stereo configurations are particularly susceptible to the effects of acoustic re-radiation, since more microphones point at the overall surface of the basket. The incorporation of the Floating Basket Suspension results in a windshield with superb vibration isolation.
