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.

Great adjustable shock mount! Fit my TLM103 perfectly and works great as part of my travel rig

By Liana B on January 2, 2023

feels cheap but it does the job...can't say I would recommend it

By Vincent E on March 10, 2022

Fantastic shock mounts. My only issue is figuring out where to find the money so I can replace all of my old shock mounts with Rycote!

By Michael G on December 3, 2021

Great replacement for the now unavailable Neumann shockmount for the USM-69

Good solid product. Get's the job done!

By AndrewLipnick on September 24, 2021

Rycote Shock mounts are awesome. Many major mic manufacturers such as Telefunken and Shoeps have started shipping mics out with these mounts now. Very affordable, very effective.

By Daniel D on September 6, 2021

These are solid and do the job very well. Only knock is getting the mic in and out is a bit of a pain because it’s requires 2 hands and a few seconds to loosen/tighten the screws, but they are significantly cheaper than other mounts.

This Rycote shock mount was used with a Royer R-122 MKII microphone. They are about 3/4” in diameter. The mount works great.

Most versatile shockmount on the market.

This is a brilliant design — strong, sturdy,
and affordable. I have no clue as to why pro
audio folk are still using the ancient rubberband
devices that still glut the marketplace. Go figure...

By Sean F on November 19, 2020

Shock mount fits all my mics with no mounts. Good for and nice looking, I use it all the time.

By Juan C on October 5, 2020

It works

By Bryan H on May 18, 2020

The best!

By Douglas G on January 28, 2020

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.

By dinogi on July 20, 2019

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

By Seth G on March 24, 2019

Love it !!!

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.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
