Product Description

Product Description

Blue Microphones - Ringer Universal Shockmount

Amazon.com

The Ringer is a custom designed shockmount for Blue's complete line of spherical microphones; the ball, the 8-ball, the kickball, and snowball.

The Ringer features a vintage-style suspension mount design to isolate the microphone body from low-frequency energy when mounted on a microphone stand. It accommodates virtually any microphone with a standard thread mount.

The Ringer is also a true universal shockmount--if the microphone will fit through the loop, it can be mounted in The Ringer by virtue of its unique universal thread mount.

Beyond just working with Blue-engineered microphones, The Ringer is a great accessory for any microphone where you desire a high-quality, sharp-looking shockmount.

Like all of Blue's shockmounts and pop filters, the ringer is composed of solid brass and individually hand-built and soldered. Crafted with the same attention to detail that goes into Blue's mics, these accessories will last a lifetime.

Don't get me wrong: I love--LOVE--Blue. At least their mics. This shockmount, however, is such(!) a far cry from the excellence one should expect from this company that I'm leaving this with no more than the single star it earned.

For starters, their thumbscrew--an exceedingly critical part of this whole thing--is made of two pieces. Rather than being constructed as a single, integral piece, there are two pieces crappily soldered together: the 'key' (i.e., the nickel-sized disc you grab on to to loosen or tighten it) has been stuck into a shallow trough in the remaining screw's head--almost as though the screw itself were a sort of wide-mouth flat-head screw with a nickel being used to loosen and tighten it.

Here's the deal: The design of the joint intended to be tightened BY this screw is so poorly done that, when I was hand(!)-tightening the thing until my Blue Kickball mic wouldn't tip over, the key broke off in my hand. That's right: I--no muscle man, mind you--broke the two pieces apart with my hand when trying to tighten it enough to do its job. In fact, if you zoom in on the picture here, you'll see that there's no way to tighten that large of a gap with a simple screw. It would involve bending the metal so much that the threads would no longer line up if you did. Ridiculous.

(I have since taken it to my local hardware store and three of us couldn't come up with enough washers--rubber, locking, you name it--to get the job done. I ended up slapping a hose clamp around the darn thing so that I could at least have something for that night's gig.

I love the snowball microphone. It does all that it is supposed to do. The Ringer is a sharp looking item which also does what it is supposed to do. The problem I have had with the Ringer is the thumb screw on the side. It is made of a soft metal and broke easily. All I need to make my Ringer work is a new thumb screw. I have REPEATEDLY emailed and explained the problem and requested a new thumb screw, which they have happily agreed to send me. But nearly six months later, I still do not have the simple thumb screw and I still am unable to use the Ringer with my Snowball. Recently, I have needed another microphone and I thought I would get the Baby Blue Bottle condenser mic, but after the awful experience I have had with Blue, I won't buy one. A company can have a great product but if they can't deliver on basic customer service, then they can not get my repeat business. I would not even be making this review if I had simply received a thumb screw so I could use the Ringer. Therefore, if you buy this product just be aware that if you have even a small problem you will be on your own to solve it.

Blue's [[ASIN: B000H18RYS Ringer Shockmount for Ball Microphones]] is all it's cracked up to be. It is well-designed, well-constructed and does a fine job of isolating a microphone from extranious sources of noise. As suggested in Blue's product literature, the shockmount can be used with other microphones in addition to Blue's Ball, 8-Ball, Kick Ball and Snow Ball, for which it was designed. It even worked fine with an AKG C1000S, though it took some careful fingerwork to get the AKG clip screwed down in the Ringer and it looked a little askew. Blue's Ball microphones and the Ringer Shockmount are larger than I'd imagined and look absolutely cool together: retro and modern all at once. What a shame the shockmount was given a mediocre rating by a person who reviewed it without taking it out of the packaging (for lack of a mike stand, no less). At least he noted how well the 8-Ball worked. (There is a joke here, somewhere.) I wish I could make up for that grossly off base review by rating the Ringer Shockmount seven or eight, but five is the top rating available. I would suggest using a good quality stand with the Ringer; it might be top heavy paired with many of the cheap, flimsy mike stands currently on the market. Thoughtful counter-weighting using a solid boom will resolve most difficulties and facilitate creative mike placement possibilities. Note that these are studio and performance rather than desktop considerations. Although I find no reason to doubt their compatibility with the Ringer, I have no experience with the Snow Ball, Blue's tripod stand, or for that matter, with podcasting. As far as the Ringer Shockmount, as with all Blue products I've purchased to date, I'm very pleased and impressed!

I came across this product while in search of improving my audio quality. I frequently experienced "thuds", "rumbles" and "thumps" from various sources while recording. These were mostly from typing on my keyboard, using my mouse, and other basic vibrations. There are other mounts available at a much lower price, but I wanted something that would properly hold my Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone (Brushed Aluminum) and felt that Blue would have the best understanding on that.

Once I received my order, I was surprised by its size and weight. The size doesn't bother me too much as it looks great on my desk, but the weight I was not sure about. I typically associate weight with quality, and this product is in fact high quality, but I was concerned whether my stand (NEEWER Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand) would hold it. As you can see from my uploaded images, both the stand and shockmount are holding strong.

Overall, I have actually seen an improvement in audio quality. My keyboard and mouse "thuds" that were typically picked up when the microphone was on the table have been reduced, which was my primary goal. They are still present, since the microphone picks up their sound, but the vibration itself is now minimal.

Don't expect this to completely remove all annoyances, as that strictly comes down to the quality of your microphone and your environment. But if you are looking to improve your existing microphone, this may just do the trick. Plus it makes your set-up that much cooler!
