Be aware the only ground to the head is the joint in the body. If it's not clean and tight you will get hum. You can scrape the paint off and that will help or solder a ground wire to the inside of the screen and run it to the XLR pin 1. You have to drill a hole in the capluse mount but it's fixed from then on.

Also the heads on the screws in the bottom will strip easy.

Just fyi
