Good quality piece. Solidly built. Good for the home studio. I tap my foot while recording and there is no noise coming through the mic.
.
Good firm grip on the mic. Even upside down. Although I AM using it with an MXl 90(60mm) This will work for any large diameter mic. The champagne color is a nice touch
The connectors stay nice and tight. Nicely put together with quality components.
Considering some of the outrageous prices I've seen for shockmounts...this thing is a steal. This will meet or beat alot of $100 plus mounts.

About a year or two ago, I got two MXL 990s with this shock mount. I was setting up for a live recording the other day and I turned around to see my mic falling six feet towards the floor. Luckily my drummer was there to catch it but I didn't know why it had fallen. Turns out, the joint where the mount connects to the stand had a huge crack in it. Upon further inspection, there were more cracks all around that area. I have never applied excessive force with the mount, only enough to keep it on the stand, and I've always kept it protected when moving it. Also, the little rubber bands that protect from shock and hold the mic in position constantly come out of their arm holders so you have to bend the little arms to a place where the rubber band can't slip out.I love the 990s, especially for the price, but I'm not going to spend more than half the price of a whole new 990 w/shock mount to replace a mount that should not have broken. Disappointing.

Poor construction

Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

Although I was extremely careful with this mount, the threaded joint that attaches to the mic stand split, then ultimately broke, under normal use. It looks as if it's made out of plastic. Why couldn't this be made of a more durable material? This mount will not stand up to even the most normal use.

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    This MXL 90 Shockmount is starting to droop already, I don't want to overtighten the thumbscrew and completely destroy the unit so if it gets worse...I'll have to tape it up. Unfortunately I had a hard time finding a shockmount that would fit my 990 so when I found this the price was good compared to others but I'm not happy...another reviewer had the same issue.

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    This is probably best for low-impact uses and occasional one-offs. This isn't durable enough for touring, every-day studio wear, or high-stress situations.

    I bought this to hold my 990 and it worked well for a while. After about a year of regular use I had to replace the bands, which is understandable. Occasionally I was worried that due to the friction-based mounting mechanism the mic would fall out due to wearing of the springs or something, but it never did.

    After about a year and a half, the mic started to droop when I'd use this, so I started tightening the thumb screw more than I previously had in order to keep it in place. Eventually this got too much and I sheared the screw. I can't replace the thumb screw because half of the bolt is stuck in the hole and to fix it I'd have to drill it out. Now I'm back to the standard mount my 990/991 kit came with and not really considering getting another one of these.

    Cheap construct

    By SoapFloats

    from Cincinnati, OH

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    I have two MXL 990 mics that came with these shockmounts. With the boom at side levels, the mount tends to droop. I tried to tighten the screw to correct this, and it *snapped in half*! Unfortunately, I'll probably have to buy another, since I have yet to find an alternative that fits these mics.

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    I got this when I got a Heil Sound PL-2T and broke the shockmount within the first week with normal use.The mount is a good idea but the materials used and the way they were constructed/arranged is very poor.We need to find a better mount that will work with this mic...

    Works for me

    By Cam-KGhgv

    from Meadville, Pa

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    I've used this shock for over a year now and never had a single problem. I use it on an almost daily basis and travel with it a lot as well. It works wonderfully. As far as the reviews saying it breaks at joints, and it cracks etc, I must say that I've not had this problem once. I can agree with comments about the quality of the material used to manufacture this product. The material has a certain "cheap" feel to it. But that is only how it feels; not how it performs.

    Not Bad at all

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    I've only had mine for 2 days, but I don't see why there are any bad reviews. I got mine for my MXL 990 USB mic and I have no complaints at all. Sure, there are better ones, but hell it's 30 bucks! Mine is sturdy and solid and looks like it was worth the money. Maybe I just got lucky, but I like it.

    Mount angle wingnut strips out

    By Dave-31wrw

    from Small town MS

    Comments about MXL90 Microphone Shockmount:

    I truly like the microphone that came with this mount. However, the angle wingnut on the shockmount stripped out after only a handful of uses. Since nothing else could hold this mike, I chose to buy another mount that I expect to break again.
