Product Highlights
  • Supports Mics up to 2" in Diameter
  • Standard 5/8" Threads

Sabra's SSM-1 Universal Microphone Shock Mount delivers low-cost acoustic isolation for the clear, classic sound you want. It is one of the most popular mounts for choir rooms, rehearsal studios, and radio broadcast studios around the world. Acting as a filter for low-frequency signals, it is capable of reducing mechanical noise by up to 15 dB. Use with an impressively wide variety of mics, up to 2" in diameter.

Braid-covered, high-quality elastic bands help to eliminate mechanical noise that often radiates through the mic stand, or boom pole, and distorts your sound. Standard 5/8" threading makes it easy to attach the shockmount to a boom pole or mic stand. Say goodbye to those preventable recording setbacks.

      Comments about Sabra-Som SSM-1 Universal Microphone Shock Mount:

      Very easy to put together. The bands seem to hold microphone well enough, however, if there is any significant weight on the back end of the mic, the bands will not hold and will cause the mic to slant/slope.

          I put this one to the test with some serious shocks, movement and it worked much more than anticipated on all microphones.
          I use it as a boompole shockmount and prefer it over rode's and even ktek's.
          works great on any mic from oktava mk012 to mkh16, me66. It is designed to fit any microphone , even long ones.

            This shock mount is sturdy and designed to handle heavy microphones of various sizes. I use it for the Rode NT3 CONDENSER MIC. This is a reletively heavy microphne and it's perfect for the job.

              This product is great for those people who are on a budget and already have a mic whether a desktop condenser for blogging or simply recording a guitar amp. Very user friendly, very sturdy design, even though it is plastic. The best part about this mount is the ability to break it down for travel purposes. Would really reccomend this product.

                Comments about Sabra-Som SSM-1 Universal Microphone Shock Mount:

                After months of trying to find a solution to mount a Rode NT4 Stereo Microphone on top of a 5D MkII economically and with low weight, this is the only workable solution I could find. Rode recommends the NT4 for use with a Rode SM3 shockmount for this purpose, but it doesn't work well. Because of the NT4's weight and larger than usual diameter, the microphone slips and 'settles' in the SM3 and bangs against the rings if you don't watch it.

                Another problem is that the low height of the SM3 causes the 5D II's viewfinder to be blocked by it and the mic.

                Use the SSM-1 in combination with the Audio Technica AT8469 Camera Mount Adapter and both problems will be solved.

                The only potential minus is I wish the rings on the SSM-1 were of anodized aluminum instead of plastic to prevent breakage.

                    I modified the first unit I bought to be camcorder-shoe mountable. I use this one for a boompole - and made a boompole to mic clip thread adapter.

                      I have about a half dozen of these I use throughout my studio. My only complaint is that being made out of plastic, the rings break easily. My equipment never leaves the studio and I've got one with a fractured ring that I keep only for parts. This is a minor complaint! I love these!
