Rycote 086001 overview

  • 1Description

The Rycote Windshield Kit #4 is a complete modular microphone windshield system including the Rycote modular suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and necessary extensions. It can be used with the Rode NTG4+ shotgun microphone to provides optimum protection against wind. In addition, the windshield kit is a useful solution for those who do not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.

Each custom configured system will include the correct combination of suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and extensions (whenever necessary) to accommodate the size requirements for use with your specific microphone.

Complete Kit Solution
The Windscreen Kit includes all that is needed for complete set up and use. Each kit includes the necessary modular suspension mount, windshield, windjammer and extensions.
Hytrel Plastic Construction
A material called Hytrel is used on the end rings and shield. The material aids in creating the "dead" space necessary for quiet operation.

Modular locking end rings provide quick and easy replacement of dented ends and modular extensions.

    Rycote 086001 reviews

    Windshield Kit 4 - Complete Windshield and Suspension System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rycote is the Defacto Standard As a professional production sound mixer, I need tools of the highest quality to get the job done repeatedly, in all kinds of conditions. The Rycote WS4 Kit lives up to my expectations. I use this with a couple of supercardioid (shotgun) mics - specifically the Sanken CS3e and Schoeps CMIT-5U. The WS4 Kit is the perfect size to accommodate these and other popular professional grade mics in this size category. It is built to last, includes versatile mounts and the Conn-Box noticeably lowers handling noise. I highly recommend this and other Rycote products without reservation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment of blimps I am using this on a Rode Boompole and a Sennheiser MKE 600 shotgun mic. I record all my audio into a Roland R-44. I am a student so when it comes to buying equipment, it comes down to price, functions and long term investment. It was between a Rode blimp and this and obviously this won me over for 2 reasons: the design and connbox. Don't get me wrong, I really like Rode products, and I do respect the rode blimp alot as it is a versatile and affordable blimp. However, I figured if I'm going to invest in a blimp, might as well do it once and forget about it. The pricing is on the expensive side but A) I can afford it and B) I see this as a long term investment. The Rycote design with the suspension and overall practicality was a huge score for me. I can wave that blimp with the MKE 600 in it and I won't even hear any rattling (but if you really wanted, you'd have to make a significant amount of effort to get a rattle sound). I recorded some audio outside with wind that could make a flag wave straight out consistently. No wind sounds. Just pristine, quality sounds of what I was wanting to capture. One could argue to get just the Rycote Lyre system and put them on a Rode blimp system, but then comes the connbox: it made a huge difference. The combination of both the Lyre and the connbox is a great design and works very efficiently. The bottom line is this: If you are VERY tight on budget, then get the Rode Blimp. However, if you can invest to get the Rycote Windshield blimp, it pays off tremendously down the road. I've used both and by far I like using the Rycote blimp way more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rycote updates make this a great buy I use this model for my 416, MKH60, and hopefully soon a CS-3, and it is great. The new conbox design makes cable management a breeze. Also, with an extension, it works for my MKH70 as well, meaning I don't have to carry around a bunch of different sized kits. Just get an extension, and the correct size wind jammer and you're good to go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for recording outdoors I used this Rycote Windshield Kit 4 for the first time on an outdoor video project on a very breezy day. It nearly eliminated all wind sounds from the captured audio. My only (small) issue was the difficulty in removing the blimp's end caps the first couple of times. This was a temporary condition, though. As soon as the locking mechanism loosened a bit, I could twist it apart without too much effort. The inclusion of a retractable brush to groom the dead cat is a cool feature, as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money The old adage of Buy Once, Cry Once applies. Yes, this setup is more expensive than, say, just buying a softie and a pistol grip - or using the foam windshield. But there's a reason for the extra cost - extra good noise reduction. All the components seem to be of good quality. The kit includes alternate lyres and the way the XLR cable is wired/attached to the mount is very convenient and well thought out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Hear Or Not To Hear Works great and does what it's supposed to do. It's also easy to setup. If you want to take your audio to next level you going to need this. Fragile feel to it can be deceiving. It flexes easily but I don't think it breaks very easy. It's light which is really good because having something like this on the end of your boom pole can get really tiring after a short while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it was meant to do I knew prior to buying this product that I would have to add my own modifications, namely more fluffy material in the hole that the Rycote Fluffy doesn't cover. This being said, Rycote Windshield Kits are far superior to any other manufacturer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from gets the job done This is a great kit. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. My only complaint is it comes loose from where it screws to the boompole. It doesn't do this often, but when it does its kind of aggravating.
