Why Choose WBS?

I just wanted to put in writting my appreciation for everything your company has done for me recently. The replacement for my 664 mixer arrived today and is working perfectly. Please pass on my thanks to Matt for his patience, expert help and the guidance he has provided despite me phoning, in a panic, from various locations around the world.  Thanks to you all for going beyond the call of duty, the level of service has been absolutely fantastic!

PIANI-1 Windshield Kit

Following the success of the PIANO, the PIANISSIMO is mainly designed for the new generation of short shotgun microphones and coincident stereo, surround-sound combinations and many other mics shorter than 8 in (21 cm).

As with all other Cinela windshields since 2007, Pianissimo integrates a unique full-cage isolation to prevent vibrations and handling noise by an additional ~15 db. This Cinela invention, the well-known "floating basket" principle, is achieved by four flexible "U" isolators installed around the cage. A rubber bellows at the bottom of the cage insures flexibility and keeps wind out.

Easily transportable, the PIANISSIMO is very light, robust, and adaptable, and includes all the recognised qualities of the existing range of Cinela windshields.

 

* When checking out please specify short fur or long fur in special instructions.

 

Adaptable microphones with specific suspensions (quick exchange): 

  • Sennheiser MKH8060, MKH40/50
  • DPA 4017B, 4017C, 4018B, 4018C
  • Schoeps CMC, CMC+CUT1
  • Neumann KM140/150 KM184/185

 

Key Features:

  • Very light yet durable cage constructed in two parts. Its upper and lower halves are held together at six points by simple friction.
  • Aerodynamic ovoid shape and maximum internal space around the microphone for high wind resistance. The primary covering is a special two-millimeter-thick texturized fabric that surrounds the cage, providing effective first-level wind protection with acoustic transparency.
  • The central support has two positions, which enable fitting different suspension for various microphones and combinations.
  • 8 in (21 cm) microphone on the first fixing point at the rear of the support. The mono version using the new OSIX series with elliptical isolators. Total interchangeability of suspensions between PIANO, PIANISSIMO, and OSIX (7,8, and 9).
  • Standard PIANO 1 swivel, single axis with XLR holder. The swivel is tightened using a toothed wheel, which permits a firm grip with light force.
  • The secret second swivel, only adjustable with the help of a screwdriver is useful for stereo applications. The swivel and cable turn in a block on the central axis. As standard, unlike the PIANO, the PIANISSIMO turns on both axes, but can be locked for mono use.
  • The PIANISSIMO comes with a virtually unbreakable transparent shell made from polycarbonate.
