Sharing Options

The Stereo Windshield WS AC MS Kit is an MS stereo solution offering optimum performance in terms of wind and handling noise attenuation for a pair of compact condenser microphones. If a compact size is of higher priority than performance, the alternative WS 9 MS kit is available for an MS pair of CCMs.

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

A Stereo Windshield Kit is comprised of the following three main components: Suspension, Windshield and Windjammer. A Connbox is not included and is available as an optional upgrade for additional isolation from cable-borne noise and vibration.
Windshield Body Length: 50mm
Total Windshield Length: 210mm (includes the End Caps)
Height of Windshield 140mm
Windjammer Fur Length: 40mm
Windjammer Fur Colour: Grey
Max Wind-noise Attenuation: 50 dB
The windshield body length is calculated by adding microphone length + XLR (5 cm or 2") of the LONGEST microphone, in the M/S pair. The suspension is determined by the diameter of the microphones. Any combination of the following can be made: 19 mm, 21 mm, 25 mm Round & 25 mm Square (for example for the MKH 416/MKH 30 the clips are 19/25Rd & 19/25Sq)
