For a microphone a shock mount helps reduce noise from the surrounding area, without affecting the sound of a microphone. Shock mounts are commonly used on studio microphones to prevent unwanted noise. The shock mount is used to partially isolate the mic from vibrations that might otherwise be transmitted through the mic stand, causing unwanted sounds to be added to the output signal.
Mounts to any standard 5/8" thread mount. Includes constant-tension clutch and 180 deg swivel for easy, positive microphone adjustment. Accepts microphone bodies from 21/32" to over 1-7/64". Spring loaded (tubular or conical) "clothes-pin" clamping system provides excellent isolation from stand or fishpole noise.
