Mic (or stereo bar) Weight and Rycote INV-7
« on: April 25, 2019, 04:19:56 PM »
There is plenty of info on Rycote Shock Mounts using the search tools on the board.

My question is a little more specific, but can be answered if you know how much your mics or SRS set-up weighs.

I would like to start by getting individual mic mounts before getting an SRS bar.
Line Audio CM3 and OM1s are easy to figure out.  They weight 30g each.  I need the 62 shore hardness due to those mics being VERY light. 
I have a question about two other mics and their weights.

Sennheiser e614 weighs 73g
AT3031 weighs 112g.

Anyone have info on how much their mics have weighed while selecting Rycote Single Lyre Mounts like the INV-7 ?
My assumption would be shore hardness of 72.
Open ~ Beyerdynamic MC930/950 : Busman BSC1 : Line Audio CM3/OM1 :
Closed ~ AT831b/853 (c,o) : Shure Beta98/s
Pres ~ 2x Oade mod UA-5 (W+, ACM+), Sound Pro bboxes
Decks ~ DR680mkII, DR2d (and DR40)
Also ~ AT3031 : Berliner CM33 : Sennheiser e614

62 shore single lyres are an absolute must for CM3 and OM1.  When running my CM3s in an SRS bar, I use a pair of 72-shore lyres.

As always, proper cable dressing with a strain relief loop is very important to avoid cable-transmitted vibration.

For the other mics listed, I wouldn't go past the 72-shore lyres.  Some people here may recommend the Duo-Lyres, but I advise against them for all but very heavy mic setups.  They are designed for heavy shotgun mics with windscreens on a boom.

Every time I've wondered about what sort of lyres I need, I refer back to voltronic's posts about it.  This guy knows his stuff!

Thanks, but all I did was ask the right people who pointed me to the other right people.  I had bought a 68-shore Duo-Lyre to use with an SRS bar for my CM3s, and was shocked at how very stiff it was.  I already was in contact with John Willett, an extremely nice and helpful guy, who is the UK distributor for Rycote and several other prominent audio brands.  When I was having difficulty figuring out this whole single Lyre vs. Duo-Lyre situation, he directed me to Simon Davies, one of the executive directors at Rycote.  He was also extremely helpful, and we had a pleasant email exchange as you see detailed in the linked thread.
