    shockmount hacks?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have a shure ksm57 and an akg perc120 and may soon have more hand-me-down mics without shockmounts and my budget is extremely tight. I was wondering if anyone has advice for home-rigged shockmounts or if its going to be too much trouble and I should just seek out the manufacturers originals? Glad to be part of this community- ive ended up here a lot in the past but only recently felt like I had enough experience to be part of the conversation. Thank you!

    I have bought a few Shock mounts from a dude in China, they have all worked fine. He seems to be off ebay now. But have a search for suitable items, the price is so cheap that you cant really go wrong, I did a quick search and they are $5 with free postage LOL, just be patient with delivery time.

    Several years ago I made a couple of shockmounts for nearly nothing from pvc pipe fittings and scrunchy hair bands (about $4 per mic).
    One was for a LDC mic and one for a shotgun mic for my camcorder.

    Easy to do. Here is a similar example.
