RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock™ Microphone Shock Mount
The all new Sling-Shock™ (patent pending) is a revolutionary departure from traditional shock mount designs. We've done away with the rubberized parts and elastic cords, producing a durable shock mount that gives superior isolation from vibrations.
In the Royer tradition, the Sling-Shock is hand-built in our Burbank, CA facility using only the finest materials.
Our proprietary system of non-resonant nylon cable and damped steel springs acts to isolate the microphone from vibrations induced from the microphone stand. These vibrations can appear as rumble and/or low-grade noises which create disturbances across the bandwidth, from low end thumps to harmonic disturbances at different frequencies. The Sling-Shock's superior vibration-reduction capabilities and lack of self-resonance allow engineers to capture performances free of vibration-related interference across the bandwidth.
The Sling-Shock RSM-SS1 is sized to fit Royer's 1-inch diameter R-121, R-122, R-122V, SF-1 and SF-12 ribbon microphones. Any cylindrical microphone measuring approximately one inch in diameter (+/- 1/8 inch) will work with the model RSM-SS1. Future models will accommodate Royer's larger bodied microphones and microphones of all sizes.
A European stand-adapter is included where applicaple, allowing the Sling-Shock to be fitted to European specification microphone stands.
Sling Shock Features:
Superior isolation from vibration and shocks
Felt-lined, scratch-free microphone chamber holds mic securely
No rubberized parts to degrade or stretch
Flexible for easy microphone positioning
Microhpne Cable Clip and Optional SS-C Vibration Suppression Cable
Low-level vibrations can be transferred through the mic cable and into the microphone. Incorporated into the sling-shock's design is a microphone cable clip. This feature is highly effective at further reducing vibrations from being coupled to the microphone through the microphone's cable.
If a greater degree of isolation is required, we offer the SS-C Vibration Suppression Cable. This 2-foot (.6 meter) male-XLR-to-female-XLR link cable is comprised of cloth-covered wire and connects between the microphone and the microphone stand, eliminating cable-related vibration when the highest degree of vibration suppression is necessary.
