I didn't care much about the mesh pop filter. I tried that for the fun of it and it didn't even work. Usually I take it off and just use the shockmount itself. The shockmount works great but the clamps will need some work. They rub the main body and make little click noises if you move too much.
Got this one because the shockmount pop combo from Samba wasn't in stock. Does not fit all sizes. You guys ever heard of a SM58? Shure you have. Well, doesn't fit that. Just falls down to the head. I guess the assumption is that you will use a bigger condenser mic for studio work. Live and learn. Not very flexible either.
This is a very cool idea, and very affordable. In practice, it's a little flimsy with my M-audio Nova large condenser mic, but fits well - except that the wire handles that open the mic clamp can touch the metal frame of the mount unless you fiddle with the positioning. This means I have to check make sure these parts aren't touching, which is a pain in the butt. Otherwise, I get exactly the kind of vibration-induced noise a shock mount is supposed to prevent. Next time, I'll check out the Samson shock mount, which mounts the mic via a common threaded fitting that many large mics have on their bases, eliminating the need for the clamp and handles.
First off, I've been recording vocals and Making music for 8 years. I love all styles and use my Microphones for all things, but mainly vocals. I used to use an MXL shock-mount and had to wrap a cut up sock around my Mic with rubber bands so the mic would be thick enough for the shock-mount... Not very safe/professional. I recently purchased the Nady SSPF-4 Pop Filter/Spider Shock Mount and I must say I AM PLEASED!!!!! It IS perfect for Nady mics, no shock, no boom, no movement noise. You will want to purchase another pop filter or make one [pantyhose ;] to reduce the hiss/pop/"ssss" noises. If you have a Nady Mic, get this shockmount! 'Nuff Said. You did it again Guitar Center.
Ordered it to temporarily replace another shock mount, and was disappointed in its quality. Felt very flimsy and the pop filter is pretty gimmicky. Although it works, it doesn't really absorbe nearly as much as it should for the price.
I got a portastudio and good mic to do some home recording, and learned immediately that my forceful voice needed a pop filter. I also tend to stomp and/or shake my free leg when I sit and play, so I figured a shock mount would be wise. I took a chance on an inexpensive product that hadn't been reviewed and I don't regret it. I don't have much to compare it with, but the construction seems solid enough. I just kept the shipping box to transport it; I wouldn't want to shove it in a bag without some protection. I recorded voice and guitar all last weekend and had no problems with pops or vibrations, and I have a booming voice. Not sure why anyone would pay more. One tip for any sensitive mic: sing at a slight angle instead of directly into the mic, and back off a little. If it's a good mic you don't need to brush your teeth with it, and you'll be happier with the sound.
