Our mounts are designed to allow users to accurately set up a stereo pair of microphones while only having to utilize one shock mount. The different mounts are based off of time tested stereo techniques which produce favorable results. They are compatible with the KC/MK and CCM Lg/Ug series. Please keep in mind that when using the longer switchable pattern capsules or the CCM Lg series, distances will be slightly off.
Vertical or Front Address: 36/43/51:
These two mounts are designed for use with the vertical address series (V) or for A-B stereo recordings with front address condenser microphones. The smaller of the two mounts has spacings at 17 and 20cm allowing the user to accurately reproduce the following recording techniques:
DIN (20cm @ 90°) --
DINa (17cm @ 90°) --
ORTF (17cm @ 110°) --
OLSON (20cm @ 135°).
The larger mount has spacings at 36, 43, and 51cm. It utilizes the principals of the The A-B Stereo Technique, which uses two spaced microphones. The microphone spacing introduces small differences in the time or phase information contained in the audio signals (according to the relative directions of the sound sources). As the human ear can sense time and phase differences in the audio signals and use them for localisation, time and phase differences will act as stereo cues to enable the listener to "capture the space" in the recording, and experience a vivid stereo image of the complete sound-field, including the positioning of each separate sound-source and the spatial boundaries of the room itself. Since the stereo width of a recording is frequency-dependent, the deeper the tonal qualities you wish to reproduce in stereo, the wider your microphone spacing should be. Using a recommended microphone spacing of a quarter of the wavelength of the deepest tone, and taking into account the human ear's reduced ability to localise frequencies below 150Hz, leads to an optimal microphone spacing of between 40 and 60 cm. Smaller microphone spacings are often used close to sound-sources to prevent the sound image of a particular musical instrument from becoming "too wide" and unnatural. Spacings down to 17 to 20 cm are detectable by the human ear, as this distance is equivalent to the distance between the two ears themselves. A user can also use the larger mount with the Vertical Address capsules when recording on stage or from distance. This technique creates a large sound stage and helps to capture the feeling of the room. The large 36/43/51 mount requires the use of one rubber ring per side to secure them in place (see picture for placement).
Our shockmounts are designed for use with microphones that are 20mm in diameter. The cradle is felt lined which protects your valuable investment and makes it easy to mount/unmount them. They also come with a cable lock which allows for your cable neatly stay out of the way and prevent it from transmitting vibrations from the microphone stand.
