Rycote windshield/suspension systems are the original, iconic systems used by audio professionals around the world since 1969. Rycote has applied numerous industry-leading engineering developments evolving this system to maintain its status as the gold standard over the past decades. Rycote Modular Windshields are available in complete kit configurations to accommodate specific microphone lengths and diameters. The available configurations enable almost any microphone to be shock-mounted while offering varying degrees of wind protection. The Rycote WS Kit 2 is designed for use with the following microphones:

  • AKG: CK1 C451, CK1 C460 SE300 B (CK91, 92, 93), C391 B

The Modular Windshield System offers various levels of wind protection and maximum shock isolation. Available in complete, comprehensive kits, modular components can also be purchased for retrofitting to accommodate different length or diameter microphones.

Modular Windshields are available in complete kit configurations to accommodate specific microphone lengths and diameters. The available configurations enable almost any microphone to be shock-mounted while offering varying degrees of wind protection.

The Modular Windshield is a lightweight, durable basket made from flexible grey plastic netting with a screening material attached. Designed for use with the Modular Suspension, this system provides excellent wind-noise reduction of up to 30dB with minimal High-Frequency loss.

Modular suspensions provide superb isolation against handling and cable-borne noises by supporting the microphone using Lyre suspension webs. The patented Lyre combine enhanced performance, weight, and durability to attain the most advanced shock mount and suspension technology used in field applications today.

Originally developed by Rycote, the Windjammer is a high-quality, synthetic fur-cover that provides the highest possible protection against extreme wind-noise. When using a Windjammer fitted over a Windshield, up to 50 dB of wind-noise attenuation can be achieved, producing excellent standard audio recordings. Made from materials specially designed for wind-noise isolation, the Windjammer has virtually no adverse effect on high-frequency.

The Connbox is a unique Rycote development specifically designed to isolate and greatly reduce handling and cable-borne noise to the microphone. It acts as a transition connection that effectively inhibits cable vibration, preventing transmission to the microphone. The lengths of soft cable are set to work perfectly with the microphone fitted in the windshield without touching the internal surface of the basket, while the soft cable greatly reduces the transmission of cable-borne noise and rumble. The Connbox is made of the highest quality components, using Gold pin Neutrik X-series XLR connectors, and an ultra-soft Mogami star-quad cable.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
