Shock Mount for ATR2100 Microphone | Equipment and Techniques for Webcasters and Podcasters |
The very popular ATR2100 microphone has a body diameter that is larger than most handheld microphones. Accordingly, it's often challenging to find a shock mount to isolate it from table noise and vibrations. I recently discovered a shock mount that fits the ATR2100 (and the AT2005USB and Samson Q2U) perfectly. It's the Sterling Audio SM5. The regular price is $30. It's a quality piece of equipment, and it comes with a spare set of bands. I bought one from Musician's Friend, but a lot of dealers carry them. By design, they do not hold the mic rigidly. That's how they provide isolation. So, be careful with it, and it should provide years of good service.
