Rycote is launching a new version of its InVision Universal Studio Mount microphone suspension at this year's Winter NAMM show.
The existing InVision USM can be used to mount microphones from 18 to 55mm in diameter, but the new InVision VB will hold large-diaphragm models from 55mm to 68mm, such as the Neumann M47 and M147, the Studio Electronics Gemini 5 and G3500, the Rode Classic II, and the BLUE Microphones Kiwi and Mouse, as well as classics like the original Neumann U47.
The InVision VB offers the same design as the original InVision USM, based on Rycote’s W-shaped Lyre mounts, and provides the same protection as the original InVision USM, reducing noise further by up to 12dB when compared to traditional elasticated mounts, according to Rycote. Most microphones can be mounted or removed thanks to the USM’s four-screw locking system.
Pricing & Availability:
The InVision USM VB is shipping now, priced in the UK at £76.55 (including VAT) each, and $119.99 in the USA; pricing has yet to be determined in other territories at the time of writing. The USM VB will also be available in the Rycote Studio Kit, combining the wider diameter of the USM VB with Rycote’s pop filter to create a vocal recording solution for large-diaphragm microphones. The VB version of the Studio Kit will retail in the UK for £95 including VAT, and $149.99 in the US (again, prices in other territories have yet to be determined).
