Rycote InVision USM-VB Universal Shock Mount
The Rycote InVision USM-VB Universal Shock Mount is a high quality universal microphone shock mount suitable for larger sized large diaphragm microphones. This mount is virtually indestructible and will last you a lifetime. When it comes to the security of you microphone there is not other choice that Rycote!
The VB in USM-VB stands for “very big” and is intended for larger microphones with a diameter between 55-68mm. For example the Neumann U47 FET or MXL Revelation II. If your microphone’s diameter is less than 55mm, you might be looking for the Rycote USM which is for microphones with a diameter between 18-55mm. For example the Neumann u87Ai or Shure KSM32. Either way, if you need help deciding which Rycote mount will fit your microphone, just reach out to us and we will be happy to help.
Like the other InVision mounts, the 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 55-68mm. The Rycote InVision USM Universal Shock Mount 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.

Not my first Rycote, and not my last either. This shockmount is billed as handling mics up to 68 mm in diameter and 900 grams in weight... which is right where I need it for my extremely heavy CAD E-350 (63 mm and 855 grams). This works extremely well, and is much easier to handle than the original elastic band shock mount.
