Rycote INV-6 Shock Mount
The Rycote INV-6 Shock Mount is suitable for short small diaphragm condenser microphones of 19-25mm diameter such as the Sennheiser MKH 8020/40/50 when used with their MZX XLR module. The mount features a pair of Single 72 (19/25) Lyres.
• Virtually indestructible
• Offers much improved isolation from camera noise compared to other on-camera microphone mounts
• No elasticated parts — never sags or needs rethreading
• 2 x 19-25mm universal clips, with Standard (70mm wide) Lyre

Part of the larger InVision range of noise-reducing microphone shock-mounts, Rycote’s InVision Broadcast, are designed for discreet, low-profile on-camera use in broadcast studio environments where windshielding is not required.
More about Rycote
For more than forty years, Rycote has specialised to develop and make the industry standard shock & wind protection for the extremes of field production sound.
When a windnoise reduction device is fitted, its effect on the audio response is a constant factor – if it causes some loss of HF it will do it at all times. However the amount it reduces windnoise by depends on how hard the wind is blowing. If there is a flat calm it will have no beneficial effect at all and the sole result will be a degradation of the audio performance of the microphone. However, in a strong gale a small deviation from a perfect flat response may be a minor compromise to make for a recording with >30dB reduction in windnoise. Rycote strongly recommends fitting the minimum shielding necessary at any time.
