Every now and then, your gear needs a little love - but what about some of your accessories? Microphone shock mounts are designed to keep vibrations from ruining your recording, and this is usually done via elastic bands that "float" your microphone. Sometimes these get stretched out over time and don't perform as well. Since we came across this issue today with our Neumann TLM 49 and its EA 3 shock mount, we got down and got it looking good again! (Note: while this article is specific to the EA 3, many Neumann models are all strung in similar fashion)
Finally, screw the TLM back onto the inner basket. The mic's weight will get the entire shock mount to "settle" into its proper position. Your shock mount is as good as new! You'll likely hear the difference in your recordings as well!
Is your Neumann shock mount in need of some TLC? Dale stocks replacement elastic bands for all of their models - contact one of our Sales Professionals for more info and pricing!
