Shure Incorporated unveiled a new shock mount for its KSM353 ribbon microphone.
The accessory was shown at the recent Audio Engineering Society conference in New York.
The KSM353’s 1.5-pound weight and lack of a secure attachment point posed distinct challenges to achieving these goals, Shure says.
The first step was to redesign the bottom connector of the microphone to accept the ShureLock thread design. A standard feature on the mounts for Shure KSM-series microphones. the mount threads onto the bottom of the microphone to hold it. In place of the traditional elastic bands or rubber o-rings found in most shock mounts, the A300SM employs wire rope.
