Rycote InVision Studio USM Shock Mount

Universal microphone shock-mount for mics between 18 and 55 mm in diameter, and from 400 to 750 grams in weight
MFR# 44901

Product Description

Like the other InVision mounts, the Rycote USM makes use of Rycote's patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount, but on this mount the W-shaped Lyres are placed around a central mounting ring with adjustable fasteners, allowing the USM to accommodate any microphone with a diameter of between 18 and 55 millimeters.

  • A universal mic mount - fits any large-diaphragm recording microphone from 18 to 55 mm in diameter and from 400 to 700 grams in weight
  • Offers up to twice the isolation from cable and stand-borne noise of traditional 'cat's cradle' elasticated microphone mounts
  • Virtually indestructible
  • No elasticated parts - never sags or needs re-threading

The Rycote USM updates the concept of the microphone suspension for the 21st century, completely omitting any elasticated parts and using modern materials to create a virtually indestructible shock-mount with a performance that far outstrips that of the humble 'cat's cradle' suspension. In controlled tests at the Rycote factory, the USM provided up to twice the isolation of traditional microphone suspension systems.

It works

The best!

Still 5 stars even though initial setup and subsequent adjustment takes slightly longer than with a N___mann screw top style mount. Once you get the technique down it becomes automatic. Any disadvantage from that is offset by the fact that it can go from holding a skinny MKH416, KM184 sized mic to supporting my trusty but brick-like Soundeluxe U195 with a few twists of the twisty finger thingies :) The brilliant but optional pop filter is a must have. Spend the hundred bucks and get both. Oh... and there's a good chance you will be dead before it needs repair.

Works great - holds a relatively heavy smaller diameter ribbon mic horizontally with no drooping. Money well spent!

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
