General Description

Use the Shure Model A2WS Windscreens to attenuate unwanted breath and wind noise in close talk and outdoor applications. It prevents annoying pops and ticks when a talker or performer speaks or sings closely into the microphone and shields the microphone from rushing and whistling sounds in adverse wind conditions.

Effective and rugged, the A2WS fastens securely to both hand-held and stand-mounted SM57 and 545 Series microphones. It is available in gray (A2WS-GRA) and black (A2WS-BLK).


  1. Slip the windscreen over the microphone until the inside of the windscreen barely makes contact.
  2. Move the windscreen 3 to 6 mm (1/8 to ΒΌ in.) away from the microphone top.
  3. Tighten the setscrew to securely fasten the windscreen.

    Note that the setscrew connects to the bushing rather than the microphone body.
