A few weeks back I mentioned that I was working on a design for a Zoom H1 shock mount. Now that I’ve got the 3d printer up and running I can test out my design. I must say it works very well. I added a cold shoe adapter to the bottom of the shock mount, a 1/4 20 mount through the bottom, and placed 4 small holes around the outside so that you can easily tie-wrap audio cables.

I also added another spot for a rubber-band (red one in the font), in case you want to stiffen up the shock mount a little more. I hadn’t really planed on using this with the Tascam DR-05, but it seems to work fine for that as well. Once I get done with a few more adjustments I’ll print one of these in black and see how it turns out.

I think this could also work great for a few of those cheaper field recorders that don’t have a built in 1/4 20 mount. If there is enough interest in a few of these plastic camera parts I’ve been making, maybe I’ll add a store tab to the site and do a small run of 50. Let me know if this sounds like something you guys might be interested in.
