Rycote Modular Windshield WS 2 Kit 086003


The Modular Windshield WS 2 Kit is suitable for small diaphragm condenser microphones from 121mm up to 160mm in length with a 19-25mm diameter and a 3-Pin XLR connection.


Main Benefits:

  • Flexible, complete windshield and suspension package, which provides varying levels of windshielding for numerous microphone configurations
  • The iconic Windshield Kit is the industry standard, and leads the way in windshielding and suspension technology

The Modular Windshield Kit is the professionals' choice when maximum isolation from wind and handling noise is required.
This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Components may be ordered separately, or as one of a series of kits, which simplify the selection process for many common configurations.A Modular Windshield Kit is comprised of the following three main components: Modular Suspension, Modular Windshield and Windjammer.

Modular Suspension

Our suspensions provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, by supporting the microphone in a cradle arrangement using Lyre suspension webs.

The Windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector, sliding onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation. This is the first layer of windshielding protection for your microphone.


The Windjammer introduced by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic fur covers, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. Fitted with a drawstring & toggle to allow snug and easy fitting. Modular Windshield Kits, including zipped Windjammer are also available on request.


Windshield Body Length: 210 mm

Total Windshield Length: 320 mm (includes the End Caps)
Height of Windshield: 100mm
Windjammer Fur Length: 40mm
Windjammer Fur Colour: Grey
Microphone Connector: XLR-3F
Max Wind-noise Attenuation: 50 dB

Finding the correct Windshield Kit will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone.

Because the whole microphone is encased in a windshield basket the total length of the microphone including the XLR cable must be accounted for, this means adding 50mm to the length of the mic.

For a windshield to work effectively the microphone should be mounted centrally within the windshield, therefore the microphone + XLR length should approximately equal the windshield body length. The body length of our windshields is the total length, excluding end caps.
