Product Highlights
  • Fits a Variety of Shotgun Microphones

The Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII Microphone Suspension addresses the demand for a heavy-duty shockmount to secure shotgun microphones. The INV-HG mkIII will minimalize handling noise, rumble, and vibration in all speech-capturing applications.

The InVision Lyre cradle accommodates most microphones measuring 19 to 25mm in diameter, like the Sennheiser MKH416 or MKH60. The cradle stabilizes even heavy microphones and allows the use of windscreens without sagging. A heavy duty swivel with a star knob fastens your mic tightly in place. The Lyre cradle rests on a miniature bar with a 3/8" threaded base and includes a 5/8" adapter.

The INV-HG mkIII base features an integrated cable clamp for securing excess cable and minimizing noise. The unique Lyre suspension and cable clamp are engineered with Hytrel for a virtually indestructible design that maximizes shock and noise absorbtion.

Large Lyre Suspension for Boom Operation
The Patented Rycote Lyre suspension cradle measures 70mm high and 40mm wide to accommodate heavier microphones. This is ideal for static stand mounting as well as boom placement.
19 to 25mm Mounting Cradle
The cradle included with this system accommodates microphone diameters measuring between 19 to 25mm. The interior is treated with a soft-grip surface for a perfect, non-slip fitting.
Hytrel Construction
The unique Lyre suspension is engineered with Hytrel for a virtually indestructible design that maximizes shock and noise absorbtion.
Integrated 3/8" Threaded Base with 5/8" Stand Adapter
A 3/8" threaded base and a 5/8" threaded stand adapter is featured at the base for microphone boom pole and stand mounting.
Threaded Mount 3/8" with 5/8" adapter

        Comments about Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount:

        I use the product on a boom and on the camera. I chose the Rycote because I know I would destroy or lose the rubber rings that other systems have. I also like that it doesn't flop the front of the mic with the Rode Deluxe windshield on. The Rycote is durable and will survive my travels.

          Light weight but solid. Holds my 8060 w/ softie for ext use or cmc641 inside easily. Was using a lighter InVision mount but it wasn't good with a softie and mic would pop out. This is a great solution without having to go with a full zepp.

          Comments about Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount:

          For the price range this shockmount is seriously sturdy and well built. It holds the mic securely and prevents handling noise. The knob to change angles is also secure and doesn't loosen. Overall compared to some other models from AT, this mount is solid and has held up very well over multiple shoots.

                    I haven't done a comparison to other shock mounts, but for leaving my shotgun on a boom pole stand for indoor interviews, there isn't much movement to challenge it. I do like how fast it is to snap the shotgun mic in though, faster than rubber band style shockmounts.

                      I use this with both a Sanken CS-3e shotgun and Sennheiser MKH-40. It is absolutely fantastic in my opinion and will always opt for this over my Rode Blimp.
                      Nothing at all wrong with the Rode Blimp, but this is just so much lighter and helps reduce the strain during long takes. Plus it reduces handling noise significantly, the primary reason for buying one.

                      My only problem is finding the perfect case or safe way to transport it. At the price these go for, you'd be crazy not to have one or two.
                      Get on it!

                        I use this with my Sennheiser 416 shotgun and have never had a problem. Works great. The locking system on this model seems tougher than others I've seen, which is a plus.
