Sabra Som

An inexpensive universal shock mount that works like the very best studio versions!

Studio engineers have long known the necessity for good shock mounts in getting the real sound of any mic, but the prices of some studio-quality systems are pretty outrageous. With the Sabra-Som SSM-1, small project studios can now have the same quality shock mounts as the large studios for every mic in the cabinet and at a fraction of the cost!

Sabra-Som SSM-1 Universal Shock Mount, First Take:
Improves sound quality dramatically by isolating mic from stand
Fits any diameter mic up to 2"
Adjusts to compensate for mic's center of gravity, form heavy tube mic to lavalier mic

Shock Mount Isolation Improves Sound Quality Dramatically

When a microphone picks up an audio signal, it also picks-up unwanted mechanical noise through the microphone stand. This is caused by vibrations in the vicinity such as the kick drum, low frequencies from amplifiers, an artist's movements, etc., etc. It's common for people to seek an electronic solution to this problem, such as use of a noise gate, re-equalization (elimination of low frequencies), etc. Such signal manipulations interfere with the dynamics of the reproduced sound, reducing headroom and degrading signal quality and "naturalness." The SSM-1 (Universal Noise Suppressor Microphone Support) was created to provide acoustic solutions for acoustic problems. We have tried lots of solutions, but the Sabra-Som SSM 1 decouples the mic from "thumps" better than anything else we know of, regardless of price. By physically isolating the microphone from its stand, the SSM-1 reduces undesirable noises up to 15dB.
Acoustic improvements from using the SSM-1 are often drastic and immediate.

Not just for the studio, the SSM-1 also allows the live engineer to recover the low end and low-mid efficiency of the system while sourcing the true response of the mic.

Fits any diameter mic up to 2", from heavy tube mic to lavalier

This clever little design uses powerful elastics on two rings that can be moved closer or farther apart along a hexagonal metal bar. You can mount anything in SSM1 from a heavy large diaphragm tube mic to a lavalier. It's versatility in mounting methods and adjustments makes the SSM-1 compatible with almost all shapes, sizes and types of microphone on the market, up to 2" in diameter. To correctly mount a microphone, simply weave it through the parallel, high-quality, braid-covered elastic bands of each ring, two by two.

Adjustable Weight Support

The central articulated support can be adjusted and moved along a hexagonal rod to compensate for any imbalance in the set-up's center of gravity. For heavier mics, insert the body of the mic into the bands without weaving, to retain the elasticity. Then, if necessary, add an additional ring to the bar, by the bottom part of the mic, and weave it around the XLR connector, thus placing the weight of the mic on 3 rings at once.


If you lost your old shockmount or must solve thumping on the desk, floor, or podium, this is the one! Amazingly sturdy, the SSM-1 should last you a lifetime.

BROKEN!

By KYLE Wilnewic

from Chicago

Comments about Sabra Som SSM-1 Universal Shock Mount for Microphones:

After about 2 sessions one of my 2 shockmounts cracked across one of the rings. A few days later on the other shockmount the string thing snapped in half. You are better off buying a better shockmount for about the same price. When it comes to the thing that holds your microphones, don't skimp.

Just another piece of plastic...

By speedball6sic6

from Rancho Cucamizzle

Comments about Sabra Som SSM-1 Universal Shock Mount for Microphones:

it worked fine for awhile, kind of a hassle to tie the little rubber bands (which are basically hair ties.) Then they start sagging a bit with the weight of the mic, and then the little skrew on parts break cuz its all made of plastic.....honestly....just search shock mount on THIS site and you can find much much better ones for less!

How much for this thing?

By pushit

from Chicago

Comments about Sabra Som SSM-1 Universal Shock Mount for Microphones:

I've owned the sabra universal shock mount for about two years now, and I can't say it's a complete waste of money. If you need a shock mount for a pencil mic or small, light dynamic, then it will probably work alright. Don't bother trying to support a large diaghram condenser or anything with any weight to it though. Even just a little torque from a cable will either pull the mic out completely, or just pull it to the side so that it's touching the casing, which completely defeats the purpose of the thing in the first place. I bought this piece of gear a few years ago for much less than it's being sold for on this site, and I'm still a little salty about being ripped off.This piece of gear isn't complete crap, but after I saw how much they were trying to sell if for, I felt like I had to say something. This isn't worth the money.
