  1. I also have the original and would be very interested in
    buying just the shock mount.

  2. Hi Mitch, Im getting a hiss in the background when using my new Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension. I was wondering if you had any tips on what settings I should have the mic and camera on? Should i switch it to -10db or -20db on the mic under the battery?
