Universal Shockmount

I am one of the dumb as--s who bought an Oktava MKL-2500 from Guitar Center a few years back. Later,I had to buy the Russian power supply because the mic was totally unusable with the supplied Chinese psu
.
I'd like to get a shockmount for it, but the one made specifically for it is another $75 . It makes me sick to throw any more dough into this thing.
Are the "universal" types (which hold the mic by the body- instead of at the base) any good? I see a few cheap ones on e bay, but dont want to try to save money(again), then just have to throw more at it later(again).
Thanks

Korby Audio Technologies has one that works great for any LDC or most dynamics. I don't know what it costs, probably not cheap, but it's a go to around here for the expensive tube mics of all kinds because it has no clips or anything and it works easily and well. the rubber part that grips the mic may deteriorate over time so ask if they would replace that. but it lasts a long time. hope this helps

I use the Sabra-Som system for my various Oktava mics.

The 2500 is a great mic - you should have sent it to Michael Joly instead of buying a new PSU. He can sometimes fix the Chinese PSU. However, hopefully you don't have one of the rare Chinese CLONES of the 2500.

The 2500 is a very wide mic, so I don't think any of the generic LDC mounts will work made for those typical Chinese LDC's.
