Vista, CA (November 4, 2013)—K-Tek is now shipping its Nautilus Microphone Suspension Mount, intended to provide maximum isolation while being lightweight, strong and able to allow for quick microphone changes
The Nautilus fits both short and medium length shotgun microphones, as well as smaller cardioid production microphones. Rather than depending on traditional elastic mounts or pop-in vertical clips, the Nautilus floats the microphone in a round spring design with horizontal clips that are over molded with rubber to achieve isolation. K-Tek’s Spring Mounts are made from a proprietary composite material that is reportedly engineered to allow the microphone to hang suspended, yet has the strength to support the mic’s weight. The Spring Mounts slide along a T-bar shaped rail and lock in place. This allows for microphone changes; for particularly heavy microphones, the user can add a third Spring Mount.
The Nautilus Suspension comes standard with four Spring Mounts—two provide tighter tension for heavy microphones, while the other two offer less tension to suit smaller, lightweight microphones. Special Spring Mounts to accommodate the MKH series of microphones will also be available soon. Additional Spring mounts will also be sold separately.
