Any time I see talent in a button down shirt, these mounts are the first thing I reach for. Great work Abe!

Thank you Robert, this warms my heart! Does anybody in this thread mind if I use your words on my website?

Happy to say these are now available in the Netherlands from Noyz Boyz Audio here.  Also, stay tuned for a UK announcement.

Thanks to everyone for spreading the word!

Hey Abe, here's a request:

Could you make a button down mount version for the DPA Slim? Ideally since the Slim is much lower profile than the regular 406x, you could potentially reduce the profile of the mount itself as well! Thoughts?

Even if not you can easily buy them from the dutch seller mentioned above. Shipping will be a bit more, but that's it

I sent an email to a company called Areitec to see if they were interested but have not heard back yet.  If there's one you'd like to introduce me to, I'd be happy to contact them.

Finally had the chance to use these mounts in the last couple of weeks. 

I've had great success using them in various shirts. Very quick and easy to mount with excellent results. 

Loving them!!

Thanks Abe, great product. 

Regards

Peter's been kind enough to distribute the mounts in Australia on his own . . very nice guy.

Hey Abe, any updates on the DPA Slim variant?

Yep, I've been testing different solutions.  The form factor of this mount is tricky for a side-address mic.  Right now I'm testing a design where the mic faces front - this keeps the size roughly the same as the COS-11 mounts.  The issue is then that you can't use tape front & center of the mount - you might as well bury the mic under a leather jacket.  I'm also still working on the compromise between firmly holding the mic in place and acoustic transparency.

Facing the grille of the mic to the side, the way the other mounts are designed, is bulky and unattractive so far.

Thanks for asking.  Would anyone be interested in beta testing the current solution (once I make a couple of revisions this weekend)?  If so please PM me your address and I'll send you one.

Interesting! I thought I understood that the Slim was end-address but perhaps I misunderstood! I'm very curious about this, I'll PM you.

You understood correctly! I was fooled by the little dot on the mic body, and DPA's note that the diaphragm runs "perpendicular to the cable". In three dimensions there are two solutions to that statement, and only one is true.

This makes designing the mount a much simpler task. Thanks.

You could get some piece-a-fur (Bubblebee) and make your own. It's not that difficult. The whole mount will get quite large, though
