Anyone ever mount a Shure A27M into a shockmount?
« on: March 22, 2019, 05:22:58 PM »
Getting back in the game...

I was thinking...rather than having two shockmounts, why wouldn't I just get one, put the A27M in there, and then just use the regular clips I have my for MK012s?  Less obtrusive, easier to pack up,  ...anyone ever even heard of someone doing this?

I've never used one, but aren't those a27m mounts pretty heavy?  Have you seen the shapeways mounts?

yup, the weight is a concern.  will check out shapeways for options

He'll also design custom stuff.  I've found him to be very responsive to messages.

For the record, Xpanding Man is ditching the A27M for a shapeways 3d-printed mount.  It's the better practical answer for him.

But to answer the original question here for anyone coming across the thread, the heavy A27M could actually work quite well in a single shock mount. A stiff enough suspension is required to support the increased weight, but the increased inertial mass of the bar+mics will actually serve to better isolate the system from outside vibration. 

All shock mount suspensions work on the basic principle of inertial-mass balanced against spring-rate.  The spring has to be just stiff enough to keep the mass from sagging too much in the mount, yet compliant enough to allow the sprung-mass to be vibrationally decoupled from the mount.  That's easier to achieve across a broader frequency range with a larger mass being suspended. 

Think about how much easier it is to get light-weight thing moving or vibrating even when it is suspended, versus a heavy thing.
