RYCOTE MICROPHONE SUSPENSIONS - Softie lyre mount

A range of non-modular, shock-mounts based upon Rycote's patented Lyre suspension system, for use with shotgun and rifle microphones as used by film and TV professionals. The Softie Lyre Mount is a suspension shock mount, using two W-shaped plastic lyres which grip a variety of shotgun and rifle microphones. It has a bracket to which is fitted either a pistol-grip handle or CCA (camcorder clamp adaptor) to allow handheld or camera mounted use.

Together with a Softie windshield, these systems provide a quick, simple, robust and cost effective solution for modern day ENG and location recording environments. See Rycote Microphone Windshields - Softie.

Softie Lyre Mount Suspension - Pistol Grip Handle and Boom Mount

The main component of the Softie lyre mount consists of two plastic, lyre shock-mount suspensions, connected by a flexible, rubber-lined, tubular clip. This unit is extremely robust, and has been tested in all environment conditions to ensure it performs. The shape of the Lyre provides the exact amount of compliance required to isolate the microphone capsule from vibrations and handling noise. Unlike other elastic and rubber suspensions, the Softie Lyre Mount is more resistant to extremes of temperature, operating unhindered at lows of -35ºC and highs of 100ºC. The mount has a 70mm diameter and lyres are 70mm apart, suit a microphone diameter of 19-25mm and support short to medium length shotgun microphones, which are cylindrical, tapered or flat-sided (e.g. MKH series) in shape. For longer microphones the Rycote Modular Suspension should be used.

The Softie handle is a pistol grip with adjustable angle. An XLR cable may be anchored to the under-side of the mount using three integral cable clamps, providing isolation from cable-borne noise and an aperture in the handle grips an XLR connector in the base, to provide further strain relief for a lightweight microphone 'tail' (included in the Softie Kit only). It may be attached to a boom-pole, using the 3/8" thread in the base, or used hand-held. See Rycote Microphone Windshields - Softie for details of the Softie Kits and windshields only.

Softie Lyre Mount Suspension CCA - Camera Clamp and Boom Mount

The CCA is basically a Softie lyre shock-mount suspension and bracket but fitted with a versatile adapter which replaces the microphone when fitted to a camcorder that uses a microphone clamp of 25-27mm diameter. The adapter is adjustable in angle and fits simply into the microphone clamp as if it were a microphone. In this configuration the mount provides isolation against lens motor noise and general handling noise.

In the base is a standard 3/8 inch Whitworth thread for use as a conventional boom adaptor fitted on the end of a boom or fish-pole. The adapter can even be used as a make-shift pistol grip if required. An XLR cable may be anchored to the under-side of the mount using three integral cable clamps, providing isolation from cable-borne noise and tidied using the supplied "hook and loop" strap, to provide further strain relief for a lightweight microphone 'tail' (included in the Softie Kit only).

It is available in a universal size to suit a large number of microphones (19 to 25mm diameter) and fits the on-board microphone clamps of a number of camcorders, including the Sony HDR-Z1 and the Canon XL series.
