Rycote HC-15 and HC-22

Some of you may have noticed that Rycote - esteemed makers of windshields and mic suspensions over the last 50 years - have just produced their first mics. OK, they are shotguns, so probably not much use to the music recording fraternity that dominate the Remote forum, but may be of interest to those here that, like me, stray into sound effects, film sound and nature recording.

Anyway I asked the friendly chaps in Stroud if I could have both mics to test - in my own amateur and decidedly unaffiliated way. I'm pretty impressed, so for those folks here who are interested, here's a link to a more detailed blog post I've written about them, with wav and video files etc. https://drbadphil.com/rycotes-first-...2-shotgun-mics

Cheers,

Roland

I will pop in in and check em out.
Simon always wanted to diversify from mounts and shields, he proposed a universal Radio Mic receiver ,'praps this is next.
Rycote is now owned by Vinten the camera ped and mount specialist.
The shotguns would be great if you could interchange the tubes.

The low self-noise reported in the review (similar level to Rode NT2) suggests careful manufacturing attention...and Rode do have a cosy 'use of Rycote lyres' arrangement with them, so it's possible ?

When asking Rycote about the capsule, they talked about developing the capsule design themselves, so that hardly suggests someone else's existing capsules: perhaps Roger can provide more feedback if he pops into the factory?
