Suspension Medium Single Shank

Product Code: 040240

Suspension Medium Single Shank is suitable for large stereo mics in an AF Stereo Windshield such as the Pearl MSH range and Neumann RSM 191.


Main Benefits:

  • Patented Lyre suspensions provide complete isolation against handling noise whilst safely gripping the microphone
  • Our new small and medium modular bars are now more durable and less prone to wear and tear.
  • Comfortable pistol-grip handles allow handheld use, but also have a 3/8" boom adaptor in the base for quick transfer boom operation

Sharing Options

Stereo suspensions are available to fit a wide variety of stereo pairs, single shank stereo microphones, and stereo capsule microphones.

The Full Windshield Kit is now also available for Stereo pairs. This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any stereo pairs, single shank stereo microphones, and stereo capsule microphones to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Components may be ordered separately, or as one of a series of kits, which simplify the selection process for many common configurations.

Benefitting from the patented Lyre technology already in use with all our mono suspensions, the new stereo suspensions present an array of advantages over the previous "hoop & band" suspensions. They are be more robust, easier to set up, less prone to shock-vibrations, lighter, and more versatile.

The Universal Back-to-Back clips are designed to accommodate any microphone from 19 to 25mm in diameter and therefore make it easier to determine the right set-up for a particular Stereo Pair of microphones.

Suspensions with 30mm clips on a riser are also available for single stereo microphones.
Please note that Connboxes are not included with the Stereo suspensions, but are available separately to suit all types of microphone combinations to reduce handling noise.
