Have you ever felt a little ripped off when you pay an extra $100-$300 to buy a shock mount for the expensive mic that shoulda' come with one for free? I've got one shock mount that came with a pricey mic where the rubber disintegrated in less than a year and it was useless. Well, this product eliminates these kinds of problems and feelings of betrayal. This ingenious shock mount will fit any, and I mean any, microphone and it's only $23.20. Original Pavement drummer and studio owner Gary Young makes these things by hand from the simplest of raw materials, and the main PVC outer case should last forever. Every studio needs at least a few of these. (Garytheplantman@email.msn.com)
