Replacement shockmount for SE2200... SP01?

Postby Mudchild » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:14 am

The shockmount for my old SE2200 mic has finally died (won't screw any more).

My question is, can anyone cast any light on whether or not the SP01 will fit the SE2200? I can't seem to establish this...

Or if anyone has any recommendations for decent budget shocks that will fit the SE2200, please chip in.

Thanks!

See if Rycote do a version of their Lyre system that will fit your mic. They're usually superior to the manufacturer's own shockmounts.

Rycote's compatibility chart doesn't list the 2200 unfortunately, but if memory serves me it's about the same size as a U87, for which Rycote specify the Invision USM. It's an excellent mount that is widely adjustable to fit many mics. I'd head straight for that.

I had a similar problem with my 5600. SE said the mount I had was an 'old' one as it didn't have locking dimples, and sent a new one for free. Course, the mic is a lot more than the 2200, but it's worth an email to SE to see if they'll supply you one direct.

I have a SE2200a and its works fine with the Rycote (USM I think).

I can also confirm the Rycote InVision USM fits this mic. (and I would highly recommend it)
