048488 Back-To-Back Clips
Back-to-back clips are used for 'piggy backing' one microphone parallel to another when using a mid-side stereo pair or perhaps simply mounting an extra microphone at a press-conference. They are manufactured from the same Hytrel material as the Lyre supports used in Rycote suspensions and have a soft rubber internal grip to minimise noise and damage on the microphone body.
They fit round and 'slab-sided microphones' between 19 and 25mm diameter. They are supplied in pairs, together with rubber bands to tighten the grip and reduce the risk of slipping.
048493 XLR Holder MkII
This moulded fitting has a flat area with a hole to take the 3/8 inch stud of a microphone stand or boom; it is then held in place by a microphone clamp, suspension shock-mount or other 3/8 inch threaded accessory. It has a clamp to hold an XLR connector securely, fixed by tightening a knob.
As a result, the XLR is positioned at a set distance from the side of the pole to prevent the XLR becoming unclipped or making noise. The Mk II vesion is also strong enough to support the weight of most standard plug-on radiomic transmitters.
048402 Boom Poles Adapter
Supplied as standard with Rycote modular windshield kits, the is the adapter, as an alternative to a pistol grip, which connects a microphone stand or boom to the suspension. A threaded insert in the base fits 3/8 inch threaded studs on stand or boom. A circular plate fits to the suspension with angle-adjustment and locking accomplished by a ratchet lever.
