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.

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.
