The Cloud U1 uses modern materials replacing elasticated parts in order to give a performance of up to twice the isolation of traditional “cat's cradle” microphone suspension systems. The shockmount is fully adjustable, covering a wide range of microphone sizes. The isolation properties are highly effective and make use of the patented vibration-resistant W-shaped Lyre system, which is carefully oriented around a central mounting ring. The shockmount is designed to accommodate ribbon mics from Cloud Microphones but also will handle a wide selection of classic and modern designs, suitable for both side address and many end address microphones. The 4-way adjustable fasteners make it quick and easy to change the mics during sessions. The shockmount is compatible w/medium to larger sized mics that are difficult to mate, mics w/an unusual shape, or those that have been previously limited to proprietary mounts.
