    Just got myself a TLM103 2nd hand.
    Now I'll be stuffed if I'm paying the $460 they want here in Oz for a genuine mount.
    So does anyone know who makes generic shock mounts?

    The AudioTechnica large diaphragm mount (AT8441) works quite well as long as you don't turn the mic upside down.

    that shockmount at ebay fits, but it's NOT the Neumann shockmount and you'd need to be careful (don't turn the mic upside down)

    The Neumann EA1 Nickel is pretty expensive ($250)... but will hold the mic upside down...

    I also have a TLM-103 and would also like the shockmount... and then I see a special edition mic that includes shockmount and aluminum case for $999 at Sweetwater,

    While the regular edition (no shockmount included) goes for $979. That makes me think.. :? Not fair :x

    I recently bought a couple of Peavey Studio Pro shock mounts when I was looking for a large, economical basket for Oktava ML-52 ribbons. I ended up selling one of the mics with a mount - see the pictures on eBAY


    The shockmount came with a captive nut for securing the mic, but it was far too small for the Oktava mic. I was able to pop it out pretty easily with a small screwdriver and the hole where the nut went through was just a touch smaller than the thread on the base of the Oktava mic. A few minutes with a half-round file and I had a perfect fit. The basket will accomodate a 3-1/4" diametef mic body.

    I have no idea if this will work for the Neumann, but found the mounts locally for only $25 each and the are far nicer than the usual binder-clip crap you get for cheap.

    I don't have first hand experience, but I've heard that the MXL 990 shockmount makes a perfect shockmount for the TLM 103. I think these run for about $30.
