Rycote BBG Windshield – Sizes Available
Rycote BBG Windshield – Sizes Available are designed to slip onto the body of the microphone, the BBG Windshield allows the microphone to be hand-held or shock-mounted with a Lyre suspension.
Perfect for short microphones, the BBG Windshield is suitable for low-profile boom applications as well as for use in hand-held operations and interviews. Designed to accommodate not only cylindrical microphones, it also accommodates microphones with bulbous windscreens where the maximum head diameter is 80 mm. The BBG Windshield is also an excellent solution for ORTF applications.
Constructed of the same material as the full-size Modular windshields, the BBG Windshield is designed to slip directly onto the microphone, and secured by a grommet that grips the microphone body. It can be separated into two halves to accommodate ball-head and tapered body microphones.
The BBG Windjammer is the perfect addition to BBG Windshield for the highest possible protection against extreme wind noise. This high-quality, synthetic fur-cover originally developed by Rycote provides up to 50 dB of wind-noise attenuation producing excellent audio recordings. Made from materials specially designed for wind-noise isolation, the Windjammer has virtually no adverse effect on high frequencies.
More about Rycote
For more than forty years, Rycote has specialised to develop and make the industry standard shock & wind protection for the extremes of field production sound.
When a windnoise reduction device is fitted, its effect on the audio response is a constant factor – if it causes some loss of HF it will do it at all times. However the amount it reduces windnoise by depends on how hard the wind is blowing. If there is a flat calm it will have no beneficial effect at all and the sole result will be a degradation of the audio performance of the microphone. However, in a strong gale a small deviation from a perfect flat response may be a minor compromise to make for a recording with >30dB reduction in windnoise. Rycote strongly recommends fitting the minimum shielding necessary at any time.
