Stereo Extended Ball Gags (XBG) offer a unique and highly effective solution for *compact* condenser microphone M/S Stereo arrays requiring wind protection and maximum shock isolation. The wind attenuation properties and suspension performance are the maximum in a much shorter and lighter package than a standard Stereo Windshield.

Typically a Stereo XBG will be used with these compact microphones using a directional pattern combined with a Figure-eight for M/S Stereo: Schoeps CCM_L (Lemo), Sennheiser MKH8000 with MZL Cables and Neumann KM100 Series with LC 3 KA cables.

The necessary components in use are the Stereo XBG Suspension, Stereo XBG Windshield and Stereo XBG Windjammer fur cover. A Stereo XBG Windjammer Hi-Wind Cover is also available. The diameter of the windshield is 145mm - an ideal diameter for providing the proper volume of still air around the mics for superb wind attenuation performance. The body length is 55mm and also identified by Rycote as Stereo AC. The included boom adaptor of the XBG Suspension also includes an XLR adaptor to hold the XLR cable mating connection when using an optional Connbox 7 (for 2 x Schoeps CCM_Lemo).
