Easy $3 DIY shotgun microphone mount

You may have seen my old DIY microphone mount video, which was ok but not great. This is my second version which looks and works much better than the old one.

LINKS: x1 Female hot shoe to female 1/4" mount - Comes with a free bracket!

x1 Male hot shoe to 1/4" bolt mount - Get one with double thumb wheels. This is used to mount

1m long Double sided Velcro - The one I used in the video was 16mm but i think 25mm will actually be better as it may give a better hold using just one strap. You can also use regular Velcro or even adhesive Velcro to completely stop the microphone from sliding but personally I don't want to stick Velcro to my microphone.
