Neumann Z48 elastic replacements?
« on: February 26, 2022, 12:40:22 PM »

Hello everyone- been a while since I was here.

I have 4 shockmounts for my U67s and M269s. It's the classic Z48 mount.

The elastic bands are getting old and falling apart. Does the community know of a viable replacement for these that is not the original, high-priced Neumann part? My assumption is usually that 'there are no shortcuts', but perhaps folks know of an option that was not available when I last went shopping for these some 12 years back?

Hello Mark,
Where have you been? Was the affair not working out? Anyway, welcome back!

This issue has been discussed before, here and elsewhere: hairbands (not the ones seen on MTV) and other Chinese-made work-arounds do not work for this quality product: their damping is off and the suspension mount's purpose is diminished.

Put another way, I think anyone who can afford a Ferrari should not skimp on the tires.

The luggage-safety-nets for cars, carefully selected, present a good source for quality textile covered rubber bands.

I use them with good results.
I don’t think that’s rocket science.

I specifically meant suspension mount aftermarket rubbers offered from third-party vendors. Should have said so in the first place.
