Rycote softie - 5cm

1 Available to Rent
£1.26 per Day

The Softie System provides a quick, simple, robust and cost effective windshield for the tough environment of modern day ENG and location recording. 

The Softie Windshield is a slip-on open-cell foam, with integral fur cover. The Softie will reduce wind-noise, protect your mic and is the standard world wide in TV.

Both the acoustic foam and synthetic fur are made from materials which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, and as a result up to 40 dB of 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.

For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore this 5 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 5 cm from the front of the mic.


We recommend this for use with the short extension on our Azden microphone

More information and international options

As part of our rental policy, we require that individuals/companies renting equipment have adequate insurance to cover the value of the kit.
Some companies may have rented in equipment insurance as part of their main insurance package but we often find that smaller companies and individuals do not have the correct cover. To help with this we have recommended some companies that offer short-term insurance cover for rentals.

Recommended rental insurance companies:

Performance - Film and Media Insurance

Performance provides both annual and short period policies to those involved in the media industry.
