Well, I have the ORTF and wide ORTF for the CM's, and an ORTF for the AT4041's.

With CM3s you're going to be much better off with a Rycote INV-6.  These mics are very vibration sensitive, and the Rycote shocks are the only things I have found that are effective.  When mounting the mics individually (not in a stereo bar) I find that the standard lyres in the INV-6 (72 shore) are not quite compliant enough, so I made DIY mounts using the softer 62-shore lyres.

The only SRS stereo bars that are definitely going to fit Shure donut shocks are the ones Scott makes that has the vertical center post.  I don't know that you'd be able to get the other ones through the center of an A53 without breaking something, though I have never tried it myself.  Then you still may run into the issue where the shock is too stiff to be effective for these ultra-light mics.

Whenever I'm unsure about whether a particular mount is made for the Shure or Rycote, I just message Scott and he's always been fast to respond.

What mics do you plan to use? Regarding Volt’s comment above, I can snake the ends of the mounts through the center of the a53m. Granted, it’s for the AKG Naiant couplings mounts for CK6x capsules.

I also own the Rycote mount, which can also be used.

That's a good idea - he is very responsive and accommodating.

I should probably contact him.

I've been using the doughnut that came with my S502's till that cheap piece of crap finally broke. Found an email from Fleabay yesterday that said I could get $10 of a $30 purchase so I figured now would be a good time to replace it.

Thanks everyone
