Mounts/clamps for Neumann KM56 ? Condenser Microphones

Mounts/clamps for Neumann KM56 ?

I just bought two Neumann KM56 mics. But I need some mounts for them.

Found this on ebay.
Is this what I should buy? (Wonder if it's an original Neumann mount...?) :

Shock Mount For Neumann KM-53, KM54, KM56 - Nickel - (eBay item 320155021025 end time Sep-14-07 14:32:50 PDT)

How about clamps? Does that exist for these mics?
Would be easier to place the mic properly with a clamp holder I guess...


- sorry, "high end" might be the wrong forum for a mount-discussion...

Those mounts are made by Peluso. I have one and they do an acceptable job.

You can use standard Neumann KM1xx clamps, another one that fits is AKG SA 60. The AKG is quite a lot cheaper than the Neumann ones.

Hello,

So you got the pair from the Italian guy (Rome) on Ebay

Just curious, did you already receive them? How are the capsules?

BTW I bought this shokmount for my KM54 and I works well

I use Audio Technica 8410a shocks for my KM56s. Work great.

+1 for the AT mount, which I use with my KM254s, KM84s, Royer R121, C60, etc.

Another option is the Shure A53M Isolation Mount/Swivel Adapter.

These work well for KM56's, tho are fairly tight.

The clips T.H.E. makes for their mics are about the best I've found for KM-56 size mic bodies... as always, YMMV.

Peace.
