DIY Shotgun Microphone (with wind shield & in-built shock mount)


Hello everyone, this is my first post here on, so a very happy hello from me! :) I've been a lurker on the site occasionally, but now I have something to share so I thought I'd register at last! diddlydoo (lol, that's the funniest emoticon I've ever seen)

Mic/Shock Mount Setup


Hello, I am trying to setup my shock mount (Audio-Technica at8415) with my microphone (Audio-Technica atr2500). I believe I am doing right, but I am not entirely certain on the matter.

Modification to make Blue Yeti fit a Shock Mount?

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum so my apologies if I am posting in the wrong forum or the like.

Both internal and external mounts are used, but the most commonly used shockmount are external and use some kind of elastic material to suspend and isolate the microphone from the stand it is attached to.
