That is very interesting... is it possible for you to post a picture to show us all? I still don't understand how you did this, but my interest is peaked!
If all else fails, Sennheiser is making a shock mount for the 421.. that might be a way to go on this. I think they are about $40 and would probably be a lot sturdier than the original "PITA" clip... Kurt
Thank you! I am impressed, very cool! Two birds with one stone.. replace a lost clip for a 421 and a way to use those broken Shure clips. How does it hold without the little latch button that is on the standard 421 clips? How do you address that problem? ..... Kurt
I just recently posted a comment in another topic area of this site about what a mess those original 421 clips were. As a matter of fact, most of the 421's I ran across in live sound were an absolute mess, probably mainly due to falling off the stand.
Han's idea is a classic. Cheap (hell, free if you actually have broken clips on hand, and who doesn't?) and effective. As soon as I saw the pic, I recognized how effective the design could be. Thanks Han. I'll pass it on if you don't mind.
