"Since their launch last Autumn, the MKH8000-series mics have proved very popular with location recording engineers," comments Rycote’s Managing Director Vivienne Dyer. "Not surprisingly, we soon began to receive a lot of feedback asking if we would consider making a compact windshield system that would fit these mics, so that customers didn't have to go to the extent of purchasing one of our larger modular systems."
The Windshield 10 Kit is available now, weighs 0.75kg in total and comprises:
• the specially configured Small Modular Suspension;
• the suitably sized Windshield 10 ‘zeppelin’ and Windjammer 10 furry cover;
• microphone clips;
• Rycote's resilient but lightweight pistol grip handle;
• a boom pole adaptor;
• and a spares bag.
