Let's face it – it was high time to rethink the standard "spider-style" shockmount of yore. Vanguard has created an open front to the VLSM, which allows you to position your microphone as close to the source as possible while preventing early reflections from the front 120-degrees.
Vanguard also wanted to get rid of the aggravating experiences with those flimsy elastic bands that come standard with most shockmounts. They get stretched out and saggy, and sometimes snap without warning – not something you want to happen when your mic is in there! Instead, they install aerospace-grade rubberized suspension rings that won’t break, sag, crack, or stretch over time. Vanguard picked a precise durometer for the suspension rings that will firmly support even the heaviest microphones, while still maintaining superb decoupling properties to prevent unwanted rumble and vibration.
