Accessories For OctoMic

Microphone Stand Mount -- Shock and Fixed

In most situations, OctoMic should be used with a shock mount. We recommend Rycote's INV-7 with the standard 72 Shore 19/25 lyres (black, part number 042210).

The INV-7 mounts to any standard 5/8"-27 threaded microphone stand or fixture.

The INV-7 can be ordered from any Rycote dealer.

A fixed stand mount (non-shock mounted) is also available.

Wind Screens

Wind screens are available to reduce wind noise when recording outdoors with OctoMic.

The two-part foam wind screen fits over and under OctoMic's capsule head. It should be used in light wind conditions without significant gusts/blasts.

The windscreen with a combination furry outer layer and foam inner layer should be used in medium wind conditions without gusts/blasts. (The furry/foam wind screen includes the foam wind screen -- there's no need to order both.)

Furry/Foam Windscreen Usage: Push the bottom foam collar up onto the OctoMic shaft as far up as it will go, seated lightly against the bottoms of the four lower capsules. Fit the top foam over the top of the OctoMic and push it down as far as it will go. Then fit the furry sleeve over it.

An even more effective (and considerably more expensive) windscreen system is available: the Rycote Cyclone. You would purchase it from a Rycote dealer. Please contact us or Rycote for details.

OctoMic comes in a rugged and attractive Pelican case. OctoMic sits securely in protective custom-cut dense foam. Replacement cases are available.
