    The Sennheiser 416p (supercardioid shotgun mic) has a shockmount (the rycote one, used for booming) that ,however you place the mic, covers a bit of the 'ribbed part' (the part with small openings)..
    this must in a way compromise the directivity of the mic right?
    It's a industry standard shockmount though..
    Just wondering if anyone has some physics based idea about this ..
    (I use the 416 with shockmount all the time, still sounds cardioid to me, But I use it for outside broadcast normaly, For music recording I'm kinda scared to use the shockmount..)
