How to use a PSC Shockmount
This video is all about the PSC M5 Pro Shockmount. This shock mount is a great mount for both beginners and professionals and works with a lot of microphones. As versatile as it is, you need to ensure you place the microphone inside of its rubber mounts properly to make sure the microphone is safe and secure inside the mount as it is being swung around.
Always have Replacement Rings
The LAST thing you need is to have an O-Rings with you whenever you are working. These rings can get fragile over time or because of the elements. Whatever causes them to fail, ensure that you have your replacements to get yourself back up and running quickly.
Information From Professional Sound Corporation’s Website:
- Universal design, the M5 Pro accepts the most popular microphones from short to medium shotguns and facilitates quick microphone changes in the field.
- Unique, Clear GlideTM 3-stage isolation system virtually eliminates physically transmitted noise.
- The M5 Pro can be swiveled 180 degrees, allowing for “flat to the pole” microphone positioning.
- PSC’s proprietary Clear GlideTM surgical grade silicone, microphone suspension rings bring new clarity to microphone suspensions.
- Dual, high-density rubber, ceiling bumpers squelch extraneous dynamic reverberations.

The McDonald Mount has been in use worldwide since 1985. Professional Sound Corporation has been producing and distributing these mounts in cooperation with Randy McDonald since 1990. In late 2013 PSC’s Ron Meyer and Randy McDonald once again joined forces to provide you with the ultimate microphone shock mount. The New PSC M5 Pro shock mount with Clear Glide™ Technology builds upon the fundamental design principles of the original PSC/McDonald universal shock mount in use world-wide since 1985. It is made from robust, lightweight aircraft aluminum and utilizes a unique clear glide three-stage vibration isolation system to virtually eliminate the physical transmission of all unwanted low-frequency rumble and handling noise.
