spider mount for 414 ULS

I need to replace the elastic suspensions for a pair of AKG 414 ULS.
Is there any economic good replacement for these that will do the trick without going for the original AKG stuff?

I've used some of the cheap chinese alternatives that come with MLX / etc. type mics and they work well. There are a lot of different sizes though. Not sure how to direct you to the right size, but check out your local pro audio place or maybe ebay. They are out there and around $35-40 bucks.

The Rycote USM is the best - and pretty inexpensive.

Go to your nearest Walgreens or comparable drug store. Proceed to the women's hair care aisle. Pick up a $5 pack of Scunci black elastic hair ties, which come in a 24-pack. Take four of these hair ties and loop them over the existing elastics, using the same hooks but with a different non-woven pattern (more like other elastic shock mounts.) It's pretty easy to figure out, especially if you leave the existing elastic bands in place so the shock mount doesn't fall apart in your hands.
