Rycote Stereo Cyclone MS Kit 11 Windshield System for Sennheiser MKH 416 and MKH 30

SKU: RYC089120
The Rycote Stereo Cyclone MS Kit 11 provides superior wind protection for location sound recording using mid-side microphone arrays. Its innovative design reduces room tone and handling noise for crystal-clear audio. Ideal for broadcast TV, film, and game audio production, this kit features an enhanced Connbox and advanced suspension technology. The XLR3F inputs match the connectivity of your Sennheiser MKH 416 and MKH 30 microphones, and the XLR 5-pin output contributes to effective cable management. Boompole compatibility is offered via a brass 3/8" UNC female thread.

Built by Hand
Each Stereo Cyclone windshield is individually hand-built in the Rycote factory in Stroud. This very specialized manufacturing process is carried out by a highly skilled Rycote technician and takes many hours to complete.

Enhanced Connbox Design
Designed specifically for internal cable routing, isolation, and vibration reduction, each Connbox has been optimized for specific stereo and multichannel microphone configurations. Every wire and connector has been precisely measured to offer maximum performance.

Lyre and Floating Basket Suspension
Rycote uses its industry-leading Lyre microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise. The Stereo Cyclone also features the Rycote Floating Basket Suspension: an innovative design that prevents natural resonances and vibrations from bypassing the main suspension and radiating from the structure of the basket itself.

The Lyre principle is incorporated into the portions of the suspension that connect directly to the basket; the entire structure "floats", isolating problematic internal vibrations originating from boompoles and other sources.

Stereo configurations are particularly susceptible to the effects of acoustic re-radiation, since more microphones point at the overall surface of the basket. The incorporation of the Floating Basket Suspension results in a windshield with superb vibration isolation.

Acoustically Transparent Wind Protection
An open-cell structure consisting of curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces greatly reduces room-tone effects inherent in conventional tubular windshield designs. The physical design shifts the overall bulk to the basket front. The aerodynamically efficient asymmetric basket covered with 3D-Tex material provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance, resulting in wind-noise reduction comparable to the combined modular-style windshield/fur cover performance. In truly extreme weather conditions, a Cyclone Windjammer (available separately) can be used to deliver superior wind-noise reduction.

Easy Removal and Attachment
The windshield can be removed from or attached to the suspension in an instant using just one hand, allowing audio professionals to capture the best possible audio at any moment in any environment. This is the unique benefit of Rycote's Z-Locking System. Reassembly is automatic as components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.

Low Maintenance
Location sound mixers require equipment that will not only withstand extreme conditions, but also maintain consistent performance. Maintenance is often a time-consuming, yet necessary evil. The Stereo Cyclone's 3D-Tex was developed for both outstanding performance and ease of maintenance. Dust it off after mild use or rinse and air dry after heavy use to maintain outstanding, transparent, and consistent performance for years of faithful use.
