Wire Rope introduces new Shure KSM353 Shock Mount

Wire Rope introduces new Shure KSM353 Shock Mount

Shure Incorporated unveil an innovative new shock mount for its KSM353 ribbon microphone that uses advanced materials and design to deliver excellent isolation with a refreshing dose of style that was shown at the recent Audio Engineering Society conference in New York.

After more than 18 months in development, the mount had to provide exceptional isolation, securely mate to the microphone, and complement the simple metallic styling of the KSM353 ribbon microphone. The KSM353’s 1.5-pound weight and lack of a secure attachment point posed distinct challenges to achieving these goals.

“Shock mounting a heavy microphone is a delicate balancing act,” said Chad Wiggins, Director of Wired Microphones at Shure. “If the support straps are too compliant, the mount is floppy and bottoms out. If they’re too tight, the mount won’t isolate well. And, for a ribbon microphone, you want the movement of the mount to be perpendicular to the movement of the ribbon, which complicates the design.”
