The Rode SMR shockmount, has a unique double-Lyre suspension system, and enhances the existing superior vibration cancellation of Rycote’s Lyre system by using a smaller inner Lyre to perform as a tensioning element. This keeps the Lyres in the neutral position where they can cancel the most vibration.
One of the best things about the SMR removable all-metal pop filter is that it is visually striking as well as effective as a pop filter. Built to last as long as the shockmount and microphone, the pop filter provides an integrated solution for plosive protection while remaining washable.
Utilizing a great surface area, the SMR’s frame is made from an engineering grade reinforced polymer, which is also used in equipment built tough like safety equipment, automotive components and military artillery. Dispersed around the outside frame the vibration force causes no problems because of the wide mounting rails, which increase the usefulness of the Lyre system. Efficient and well-considered cable-management completes the package.
The clamping system of the SMR utilises a greater surface area for increased friction and weight handling, without the need for over-tightening of the locking thread. With the load distributed over a greater surface area, the clamping system is virtually immune to the wear and tear of repeated use.
The SMR is a revolutionary shock mount for large diaphragm condenser microphones from RØDE. A base nut is also included, suitable.
