  • 4Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount

The Sennheiser MKH 50 Supercardioid Microphone Kit from B&H is designed for spot capturing in recording and sound-reinforcement applications. It includes a Sennheiser MKH 50 microphone, a Rycote Super-Softie Windshield for Shotgun Mics, and a Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII microphone suspension with Lyre shockmount.

The microphone provides a wide frequency response and high sensitivity that result in pristine audio. The windshield features 3D-Tex material and open-cell foam that achieves improved attenuation in extreme low frequencies, which is where wind noise is at its greatest. Finally, the suspension minimizes handling noise, rumble, and vibration in all speech-capturing applications.

Sennheiser MKH 50 P48 Microphone

The MKH 50 P48 Microphone from Sennheiser is a high quality, professional condenser microphone specifically designed for spot capturing in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The MKH 50 offers exceptional attenuation at the lateral sections of the capsule, for a focused pick up without off-axis noise. Its wide frequency response and high sensitivity result in pristine audio fidelity, no matter the source. It also has a low-frequency roll-off switch to minimize rumble/noise, and a pre-attenuation switch in case you'll mount the microphone near to high transients. The MKH 50 requires +48V phantom power, and is more than suitable for capturing vocals or instruments.

Rycote Super-Softie Windshield for Shotgun Mics (5cm, 24/25)

The Rycote Super-Softie Windshield (5cm, 24/25) features 3D-Tex material and open-cell foam. It is suitable for shotgun microphones with slots no further than 5cm from the front of the mic, and a diameter of 24 to 25mm. The 3D-Tex material provides increased wind attenuation compared to conventional slip-on designs. It also achieves improved attenuation in extreme low frequencies and infrasonic frequencies, protecting captured audio where wind noise is at its greatest. The Super-Softie can be quickly squeezed and shaken dry when rain-soaked, or rinsed when dust-coated, without affecting its performance. This robust design will sustain its performance for years of use in challenging environments, such as news-gathering events.

  • Novel shape and 3D-Tex give greatly improved wind noise reduction compared to conventional "soft" windshields
  • A true cavity design, with superb performance at extreme low frequencies (where wind noise is worst)
  • A rough-service windshield, robust enough for the most challenging news-gathering situations
  • High immunity to rain-soaking, maintaining excellent acoustic transparency in almost all situations
  • Compatible with the following microphones: Beyerdynamic MCE 72; Sennheiser MKH 20/30/40/50

Rycote InVision INV-HG mkIII Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount

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.

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 34mm Mounting Cradle

The cradle included with this system accommodates microphone diameters measuring between 19 to 34mm. 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.
