DIY-Rycote lyre shock mount w/ rapid release
« on: January 24, 2017, 12:34:51 PM »
This is more of a parts assembly project then really making something.
I wanted Rycote lyres but did not want the mounts they have or want to pay the prices... I may have not saved much $ , but got what worked well for me and suited my needs.
It's small and compact and works great!

I purchased these:

Impact Rapid Baby to 1/4"-20 Male Threaded Adapter   = $11.68
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AE1MNFA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1


Smallrig® Cold Shoe with 1/4" Screw Slot - 1499   =   $7.90
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O9I0RTS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


 Rycote Cyclone Universal Lyre, 72 Shore, Pair   = $29.00   
Photo shows it comes with screws , however the pair did not.

I also purchased a package of #4-40 x 1/2 in  Flat Phillips machine screws with nuts - pkg or 14 pairs , only needed 2.   I think it was $1.49
also purchased a pkg of white nylon flat washers  #8 for  about 59¢

A total of about $50  not much of a savings but its what I want a rapid adapter mount and Rycote llyres. I've only used it  once so far but it's perfect for me!

Used a Sharpie to black out white and zinc and made this, for my SRS shapeways NOS an d DIN bars for my Milab VM44 links:

How tight was the fit of the little rectangular "keys" of the lyres into the slots on the cold shoe?
It looks like it went together well and is a slick little mount.

They fit rather well, I did need to round corner by filing the lyres tabs (or keys) as they were rectangular square corners and the slots are round cornered.
While it took a little work it wasn't difficult or time consuming. It's totally solid

have you used that with an ORTF bar?
I think it may be too wide

Well the  NOS bar as I understand is specifically designed for the Rycotes... I will be getting my DIN bar soon, and it should be the  same mount size as an ORTF bar.
I can check but the Lyre's are flexible and can be set at a narrower spacing, or even slightly wider then they are. The cold shoe mount is only 46mm wide or 4.6 cm not wide at all...That equals 1.75 inches.
