Picture of MICROPHONE SHOCK MOUNT
This Microphone Shock Mount was made at Techshop!

The purpose of a microphone shock mount is to mechanically insulate a microphone from picking unwanted mechanical noise through the microphone stand. This noise can be caused by nearby vibrations like kick drum, people movements etc.

A friend of mine, who works as a Sound Engineer at tango.me (FREE Mobile Calls) asked if I could come up with a better microphone shock mount.

great instructable! But I have a design suggestion. why not just make one solid piece? it seems having it in pieces makes it flimsy.Like a piece of PVC tubing for example or acrylic tubing if you can find it. Notches on the top and bottom to hold rubber bands or hair bands (stronger).

Good basic shockmount, but just a heads up, those rubberbands can easily slip which would create noise. Shockmounts are generally built specifically for the mic that will be used in them, with a bracket made for that mic. That way it doesn't slip. But like I said, good basic design. (And for a mic that doesn't have a shockmount designed for it, this would definitely be better than nothing. :)
