Shock absorber style microphone holder.
Add rubber bands to complete.
The mic holder fits and screws onto microphone stand and camera hot shoe mounts well, adjust with light sanding as required.


Printed with makerbot dual.. makerware 2.01. everything default medium ABS settings.. default (10%) infill works better than expected, no raft.

There is a thin ribbon/strand incorporated into the base of the model.. this is to prevent the initial print layer/sections from moving, even if they haven't all adhered to the print platform , others will usually hold on enough so it prints fine.
Simply cut the thread connecting base parts away at the end.

The rubber bands are rubber washers, available in most hardware stores.

Its a Very very good idea - I realize it with a double size, to hold a big microphone.
The result is equal to professionnel ringer shock mount! terrible !

Great mount! But how did you make/attach the hot shoe mount part?

To attach a hot shoe mount, just screw one in.. it will fit onto standard mic stand threaded connectors too... it should be a tight fit which is unlikely to slip if printed to scale.
If it is too tight, sand down the inside of the cylinder a little.. but take care to remove any dust that may produce to avoid it contaminating your equipment.

Which type though, 1/4 screw to hotshoe?

Thank you, it's a cool and pretty clamp.
