Windshield for half shotgun mics
The Reference PIA-1 is composed of a cage with single axis swivel. It additionally comes with a light XLR extension, the main fabric, a suspension of your choice (PIA-OSIX-xxx) and a fur (PIA-FUR-SP: short pile or PIA-FUR-LP: long pile). Regarding lightness and efficiency, it is not simply possible to upgrade a PIA-1 to PIA-2 or PIA-3. Expecting a MS or double MS version, it is hardly advised to acquire a PIA-2 or PIA-3 directly, which are fully compatible for mono use (inner datachable cables).
