A radical departure from traditional shock mount designs, the Sling-Shock utilizes a two-part mechanism consisting of non-resonant nylon cord and damped tensioning springs. This highly effective vibration-damping system improves the performance of ribbon, condenser and dynamic microphones wherever vibration is a concern, reducing rumble and thumps while holding the microphone securely.
Traditional shock mounts rely on rubber bushings and stretched elastic cords as the main dampening mechanisms. These materials provide varying degrees of effectiveness, and they all degrade and fail over time. The Sling-Shock's non-rubberized components will not degrade, and they allow the user to make tension adjustments when required.
In the Royer tradition, the Sling-Shock is handcrafted in Burbank, California, using only the finest materials. It is backed by an unconditional five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
