The Windjammer™ 8 first introduced by Rycote is a high quality synthetic fur-cover, which provides the highest possible protection against extreme wind-noise. When using a Windjammer fitted over a Windshield up to 35 dB of wind-noise attenuation can be achieved, producing excellent standard audio recordings.
This Windjammer is designed to be used with the Windshield 4 + extension 4.
The Windjammer is made from materials which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, and as a result has virtually no adverse effect on High-Frequency. To be totally effective it is important that the pile of the Windjammer remains in prime condition, so each is supplied with a fold flat hairbrush for ongoing maintenance.
Standard Windjammers are fitted with a drawstring and toggle to allow snug and easy fitting.
Finding the correct Windjammer will depend on your Windshield. Each Windjammer is designed to fit over it's corresponding Windshield, for example a Windjammer 1 will fit over a Windshield 1 etc.
Because the Windjammer is most effective when fitted tightly, their approximate length is 50mm longer than their corresponding Windshield.
