Using a sanken csm1 right now as i type, female talent on 2x cam sitdown interview. Sitting at a table with concrete floor, no real room to put blankets down as its pretty wide. To me it sounds beautiful in this bright space with no interference tube “phasey” issues. Granted the mic is right on top vs following her around this room with any distance, so it doesnt quite answer your question from that perspective. But a 416 etc to my ears would not work at all in this setup

Thanks osa for your answers. Seems as though you really love your cs-m1. Since you have other mics, would there be any situations you would use a different mic than the cs-m1 in interior spaces?

For me…

 

rycote inv-lite 19 For indoors

 

zep no10 for outdoors with olde skool rycote rubberbands and connbox (others recommended cinela but this setup worked best for me personally with some frankensteining parts on hand after lots of trial and error battling handling noise)

OK all you CS-M1 aficionados... What mounts are you using with it?

I have the INV-6 (black) and INV-6 Heavy (Gray) depending on if I'm using a furry or doing more running and gunning. 

I also use the Gray INV-6 with my DPA 4017c, as the black has a bit too much flx even with foam

Absolutely! Inside a vapid indoor practice field? Inside a large stage? Large warehouse?? Wideshots on top of the above? The cs-m1 would not be my 1st choice

Hi every one i'm a new user of the sanken CS M1 and asked directly osix's founder. The e-osix 4017C (designed for dpa) is "the most suitable mount for this mic". It really works well for me but with the standart foam you can't really move without hearing the air...i tried the small spacer kit but there's not enoutgh space between the mic and the osix so I switch to INV when moves are needed.

I just bought two of these mics finally. I’m using the rycote INV mount with black lyres in cold weather with a bubblebee windkiller indoors and outdoors. will have to put a grey/hard lyre on the front in the summer i suspect. the black ones get mushy in the sun.  haven’t bought a blimp yet, but may try and use my mkh50 blimp.

 

 i bought these for a show that needs good/small camera mics, and plan and ditching my 50’s after the show and moving to these. only boomed on day with them just to test them

out, but they were pretty nice to swing. light!  handling noise with a ktek classic pole and the tiny inv-6 mount was not an issue at all.

Hi! Bumping an old thread!

 

I recently purchased  the Sanken CSM1 together with a Rycote Inv-6 HG.

 

I do feel that the Inv-6 is a bit to vulnerable to boom handling noise. Anyone tried another shock mount with success?

I personally have had the most success with the invision lite 19 mm But it’s a combination of the pole and mount that I think might help with my handling noise. I’m using a loon boom pole which unfortunately they don’t make any more. When it comes to Zeppelin‘s I had to go back to older ring style and a con box to find the right mix of rycote bits to help with handling noise and that seems to work well for me.
