BTW Brad, that Brauner shockmount is certainly nicer than the U195's, but... it's not perfect, the rubber bands had rubbed the surface finish off the mic body at the contact points. And I had a little trouble with the cam-lock, it can get rotated and interfere with the mount when you flip it up/down. Minor points I guess...

The finish, which is electroplate nickel over brass, gets marred by repeat mounting dismounting of the shock mount to the mic. That's why the case has it so you never have to take it out of the mount. I've sen some with strong marks form this before. It does buff out.

The rubber rings in the mount can't really mar the nickel that I've seen. If its a rubber mark, that comes off with a little cleaner.

The cam lock thing is not fixed, its resettable. Its really a built in spring loaded wrench...it pulls out and you can reset it to any position when it gets too close to the bottom or top of the shock mount frame. Very classy piece of hardware.
