3rd party shock mount suggestion needed for MXL V67g/i mic

    Hi. I need a shock mount to fit the MXL V67g or V67i mic (and maybe others...I don't know which others share that form factor). I have read that MXL's official shock mount for these mics, the MXL 57, leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't actually fit very well, the felt inside the enclosure isn't secured well, it's hard to fit the shock mount to the mic and secure it, and if you need to remove the mic from the shock mount you will scratch your mic. Not very encouraging. So has anyone found a 3rd party shock mount solution for these mics? Thanks!

    When mine broke, I got the generic ADK shock mount which works fine.

    Sounds good. I am new to buying studio equipment, so just to clarify...what mic are you using and what shock mount broke?

    What's the diameter of the thread at the bottom of the microphone - measure as precisely as you can.

    It looks like it's about 15 16ths of an inch.

    The Samson SP01 would be an option then

    It has a captive nut for attaching to the mic, but that nut can be popped out pretty easily - a stick of wood and a firm tap with a hammer will pop it right out.

    The one I have was opened up a little to fit my Oktava ribbon mic, and that hole is about 1 1/16". It would be a little loose on the base of your mic, but once you get the nut tightened up it should work fine. The hole is probably about 1 1/32" once you get the nut out.

    beats the pants off a binder-clip mount, and for no more money.
