Universal shock mount, designed for microphones between 18 – 55mm diameter, and up to 400g. The InVision series uses Rycote’s patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount. The W-shaped Lyres are placed around a central mounting ring with adjustable fasteners, allowing the USM-L to accommodate a serious range of microphones. To get InVision USM-L with an integrated pop filter, choose INV-STUDIOKIT-L.
Due to the advanced development of this shockmount, it should be noted that the 0-400g figure is based on upright mounting. Should you wish to ‘attack from the side’ things vary a little, and you may be better suited with the InVision USM.
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.
