CM3 - really THAT good?

Yeah, many live situations make it impossible for us to get the sonic perfection we're seeking. On the other hand, I'll bet this sounds better than what the audience heard.

What are you guys using to hold the SRS 3-D Printed NOS Mount for the CM3? I just got one, and the new version does not fit on the CMEH shockmount that I have... I had tried an earlier version of the 3-d Printed NOS mount that fit the CMEH perfectly, but unfortunately, that's not the case anymore.

I know this mount will fit the mic holder that comes with the CM3, but then there is no shock absorption. The Rycote Lyre might fit, but I can't justify buying one right now just for this purpose, so I'm looking for cheaper solutions. Any ideas??? Thanks in advance!

You tried removing the CMEH's diameter reduction adapter, right? You can then stretch or bend inwards the CMEH's jaw to taste/needs. Don't overdo it, but there's some room to play there.

I thought about it, but it seemed like I was going to damage it... I'll give it another try! Thanks for the suggestion!

Edit: Well, without the diameter reduction adapter, it fits.... and the CMEH is too big! I guess it would be the perfect size with the adapter, but I'd definitely break the plastic diameter reduction adapter if I tried :-( I will try to find the little plastic piece that comes with the CMEH to make it so one could "fill in" for different mic sizes and see if it helps, but I'm not holding by breath...

Sure, just bend the jaws out a bit (2-3mm will do), slide the plastic adapter out and then bend the jaws to the proper dimension, in turn it will affect the inside jaw.

I've been using Mic-Eze clamps. I fiddled around with various methods including mic clips, but found the flexibility of the clamps to be better. Depending on the configuration, I have on occasion used a Rycote.
