Alternative Shockmount for Neumann TLM103? Condenser Microphones
Old 3rd February 2009
Here for the gear

Problem we have with accessories for the big brand expensive bits of gear is they tend to have the big brand expensive price tag. Is a shockmount worth £200..........erm NO! is the answer to that one. Its a few bits of metal welded together with some elastic bands and some screw in parts and the Neumann mob must be laughing at the profit they make from these things.
I have an RME ff400 (1/2 rack size unit). I wanted to put it in my 19" rack which would have required me buying the extension lugs to do so. Turns out they cost £ did I bother buying them?....did I hell because I knew I'd be getting totally ripped off if I did and I'm not about to let that happen. We're talking about 2 bits of metal bent at 90 degress with a couple of holes drilled in I made them myself at a cost of £5 and they do exactly what the £40 would do and don't look much different either.

Solution to initial question is at this website. Rycote InVision™ Studio Kit

Apparently they make custom/adjustable shockmounts for any microphone. A universal shockmount (as they dub it)
