This shock mount uses a double-pole construction on an adjustable microphone stand base. Both omnidirectional and directional microphones – compact as well as larger – fit this mount. It is an especially important piece of gear when using pressure gradient (directional) microphones, which need extra supression of vibrations.
Based on the Rycote® Lyre™ suspension system, almost any microphone can be used in this shock mount by simply adding another Lyre™ rubber piece. The lighter the microphone, the softer the rubber should be.
The design of this shock mount is extremely flexible. The holders can be mounted facing both upwards or downwards. The poles can be adjusted by pushing to one side or the other.
