The main component of the Softie mount is a one piece rubber (actual material: EPDM) diaphragm shockmount. This unit is extremely robust, and has been tested in all environment conditions to ensure it performs.
The Softie Mount comes in three sizes, depending on which microphone being used.
*Standard Hole 19-22mm diameter*
*Large Hole 24-25mm diameter*
The mounts are 58mm diameter x 56mm long, and support short to medium length shotgun microphones. The Softie mount will only fit shotgun microphones, which are cylindrical in shape (the same diameter though their whole length). We can not mount microphones that taper, with the Softie mount.
The longest Softie Windshields we make have an internal bore of 32cm (12-1/2") - Example:AKG CK68 or Audio Technica AT815b. These are the longest microphones we would recommend using a Softie Mount for, simply because the mount is flexible & can not support longer mics. For longer mics, we would only recommend a Full Windshield System, and a Modular suspension.
The Softie Mount, used with the Softie Windshield provides a fast, flexible and cost effective solution for ENG on camera microphones.
The CCA can be used either as a conventional Boom Adaptor fitted on the end of a boom or fish pole or on a camcorder mic clamp. The CCA has a brass 3/8" Whitworth thread insert for the fitting to the pole. The design of the CCA also allows for the XLR connector to be anchored using the supplied Velcro grip.
The Softie CCA allows you to attach your shotgun microphone to camcorders fitted with a microphone clamp (25-27mm diameter). The Softie mount provides isolation against lens motor noise and general handling noise.
The Softie Lyre Mount has a "once size fits all" cradle for cylindrical microphones ranging 19mm to 25mm in diameter. The special clip design also allows for Sennheiser MKH slab-sided microphones securely fitting without compromise.
A 3/8" tapped brass insert in the Pistol Grip Handle and CCA base allows for boom or stand mounting. The CCA will fit a number of cameras with on-board mic clamps.
