Is there an aftermarket shockmount available for Audio Technica mics? Condenser Microphones

Is there an aftermarket shockmount available for Audio Technica mics?

I don't like the shockmount that came with my AT4050 and was wondering if anyone makes an aftermarket model that fits the Audio Technical AT40X models, that provides a better grip in the mic? It appears that the mic can easily fall out of the one that comes with it in the box.

Thanks,
B

I can definitely agree with you that the AT mounts are lousy. And yes your mic can fall out of them.

That shockmount looks like the one that came with a Røde NT1A, and there's no way any of my A.T. mics will fit in it.

Just a guess.

IM a big fan of AT mics, but that shock mount needs tweaking. What I did is put a 1/4" wide rubber belt on the top part of the mount putting far more tension on the Mic, not a big deal but made a huge difference. AT also makes a smaller mount for the 4050 part #AT-8430 that holds the mic very securely,it has a rubber insert but not a full shock mount. Makes placement in tight areas far easier. Not sure why but its cost more than the big shock mount. I have also done the same mod with the rubber belt to AKG mounts for better holding power... Whats interesting to me is the AT shock mount is a very nice mount, it just needs more tention on the mic, the NT-1 mount INHO is a real piece of crap, but what do you expect for $100.00...
