Cloud Microphones debuts new Universal Mic Mount
San Francisco, CA ? Cloud Microphones is showing their new U1, an innovative and affordable microphone mount ($179 MSRP, $149 MAP). The Cloud U1 is a virtually indestructible shock-mount considerably superior to the more conventional ‘cat’s cradle’ suspension used in other designs.
The U1 makes use of Rycote?s patented vibration-resistant W-shaped Lyre Mount system carefully oriented around a central mounting ring with fully adjustable fasteners. The U1 will fit all Cloud Microphones boutique ribbon mics, but can also handle a wide array of classic and modern mics, including larger mics that are difficult to mate or those that have been previously limited to proprietary mounts.
?Every engineer we?ve shown these mounts to has been amazed at how smoothly they work, ? says company founder Rodger Cloud. ?The U1 also provides a perfect solution for both side address as well as many end address mics, especially those with medium to larger size body styles.?
The U1 is available for shipping immediately.
