USM Shock Mount
- Universal microphone shock-mount by Rycote suitable for mics between 18 and 55mm, the microphone maximum weight with the mic vertical is 750g, the microphone maximum weight with the mic horizontal is 500g.
See the average weights of the Feather mics in the details to determine which shock mount you should get. I prefer the USM-L for our microphones.
A universal mic mount - fits any large-diaphragm recording microphone from 18 to 55 mm in diameter
Offers up to twice the isolation from cable and stand-borne noise of traditional 'cat's cradle' elasticated microphone mounts.
No elasticated parts - never sags or needs rethreading
