Slip-on fur and open-cell foam windshield suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 18cm from the front of the mic and a diameter of 24-25mm. The Softie Windshield Kit includes a Softie Windshield, Lyre shock-mount and Pistol-grip. The Softie Kit also comes with a 40cm Softie Cable: 3-pin XLR Gold plated, Mogami, Ultra Soft 5.0 mm cable. Together this system provides a quick, simple, robust and cost effective windshield and shock-mount for the tough environment of modern day ENG and location recording.
The Softie is a slip-on open-cell foam windshield with integral fur cover. The Softie will reduce wind-noise up to 40 dB and is the standard world wide in the broadcast industry. Softie windshields are available in a large range of sizes to fit most popular shotgun microphones. Both the acoustic foam and synthetic fur are made from materials which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, and as a result offers very good wind-noise reduction without any adverse effect on High-Frequency. In addition the foam is not susceptible to UV or moisture damage, giving this product great longevity. Advanced materials, adhesives and assembly techniques all combine to make the Softie an extremely tough product that provides excellent wind protection in the harshest of environments.
This universal shock-mount, complete with Pistol-grip, uses the patented Lyre system to provide complete isolation against handling and cable-borne noises. The Softie Lyre Mount has a soft-feel grip moulded into the clip which securely holds the microphone, preventing any slipping or twisting. The Lyres are extremely robust, and virtually unbreakable, as they do not use elastic or rubber components that are prone to wear and tear. The Softie Lyre Mount is supplied with a lightweight Pistol Grip handle. The Pistol Grip has an added element of versatility as they have a 3/8" thread fitting for use with a boom pole.
Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter. For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 12 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 12 cm from the front of the mic. The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm).
