Microphones are specifically designed to pick up the most subtle nuances of vibration, and how are they held? Tightly clipped into rigid metal stands. Every movement of the stand, every footfall on the floor, every ugly vibration caused by monitor speakers, amps and drums - garbage - amplified - distorted - spewed out and recorded.
Any microphone that can be mounted on a microphone stand (and even some that can't) can be used with the unique patented Tensimount™ microphone shock-mount. The Tensimount modular system is the only truly universal shock-mount system. It not only brings high quality isolation to the microphone system, it also brings a new level of convenience to microphone management.
Most microphones can be directly mounted into the Tensimount. The microphone is easily woven into the center of the bands. The mutual tension of the special elastic mounting bands floats the microphone in the center of the Tensimount rings. Once mounted, the Tensimount becomes an integral part of the microphone.
Once in the Tensimount, your microphone fits into a standard microphone clip. Note the security bands that slip over the clip and hold the Tensimount securely in place. Most tapered clips hold the Tensimount perfectly - chances are you already have several clips to fit the Tensimount. The clip shown in the photo is perfect, and is available at a reasonable price from our shopping site and distributors. You can buy Tensimounts with or without a clip.
Oversized studio-type microphones are securely mounted with the ingenious BigMike™ adapter. Big Mike screws onto the microphone like a standard mic. stand. That means that any microphone that can be mounted on a stand can be mounted in a Tensimount. Notice the large knob on the top of Big Mike. This is to adjust the angle of the microphone - one more way that the Tensimount system makes microphone management more convenient.Back to top
Do you use multiple microphones? The tensimount system is very good news for you!
The Tensimount universal microphone isolator converts all microphones to fit into one standard microphone clip. It makes all your microphones totally interchangeable. This is a surprisingly powerful design feature that you probably won't fully appreciate until you begin to use Tensimounts on all your mics.
With total interchangeability, you just unclip one mic and clip another in it place. No need to move around stands. No unscrewing clips. No searching for that special clip to fit that odd-shaped microphone.
If a clip gets broken, no sweat! - all your clips are the same - just replace it with another (the standard tapered clip is available from us or our distributors at a reasonable price and you can buy Tensimounts with or without the clip.)Back to top
It's like regular feedback but much worse. Microphones pick up vibrations straight from the floor through the stands. Expensive filters and equalizers won't touch this form of highly distorted feedback. The only solution is to knock it out at the source. Tensimount microphone isolators were invented for this very purpose. They make it possible to float an entire mic system in a resilient web of rubber.Back to top
When you think about it, it's amazing that microphones are usually so poorly mounted.
Microphones are specifically designed to pick up the most subtle nuances of vibration, and how are they held? Tightly clipped into rigid metal stand. Every movement of the stand, every footfall on the floor, every ugly vibration caused by monitor speakers, amps and drums - garbage - amplified - distorted - spewed out and recorded.
Floating your whole system is the obvious answer, and Tensimount makes it possible. At last, you can have the peace of mind of a totally floating mic system. Ease of use, universal fit and modular convenience at an extreeeemely affordable price.Back to top
See and hear the difference a Tensimount can make:
You may find it hard to believe that this is the same mic at the same level. In the After clip, the microphone picks up the sound of the mallet hitting the stand. In the Before clip you hear a whole lot more!Back to top
