The CMIT SSFT SET from Scheops features a condenser shotgun microphone, suspension mount, and a softie wind shield. It can be used to capture audio in various environments for applications such as professional film, audio for video, music recording, and more. The CMIT SSFT set includes a Schoeps CMIT5U shotgun microphone, a Rycote InVision microphone suspension with Lyre shockmount, and a 15cm Super-Softie wind shield.
Sized between the short MiniCMIT and the long SuperCMIT, the blue Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun microphone is an excellent all-around boom mic for indoor and outdoor applications. Highly regarded for film, TV, and location recording, the CMIT 5 offers customizable tone and predictable directionality, even when rotated.
Three selectable filters let you manage boom noise, proximity effect, high-frequency emphasis to ensure balanced, professional audio quality. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.
The CMIT 5's supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields directional characteristics that smoothly increase at higher frequencies while providing low off-axis coloration for natural sound at all angles. With low self-noise, moderate sensitivity, and high SPL handling, the CMIT 5 delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.
Pairs of LEDs next to each push button indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness, the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.
The Rycote Super Softie Windshield for Shotgun Mic (5.9" Long, 0.7 to 0.9" Diameter) features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is suitable for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG, and more.
The 5.9" Super Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. Its robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. If it becomes coated with dust, it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.

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 34mm 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.
