A Better Pop Filter

A really good investment: WindTech PopGard 2000.

I’ve been wanting to replace my crappy flexible pop filter for quite some time, but I guess I’ve either been lazy or didn’t think there was really a better option available.  I did some research and read a lot of reviews before choosing the PopGard 2000.   The main benefit was not having that gigantic round disc in my face.  Also, not having to constantly adjust the flexible stem if (when) I bumped it.

This new pop filter is pretty cool because it mounts softly (quietly) to the microphone chassis and wraps around it pretty tight… so if you’re like me, it increases the visibility of your scripts on the monitor in front of you.  I used to have to read sideways across the mic to see my monitor, and I noticed that my Neumann TLM-103 has a much richer sound if you speak directly into it – not across it.  As a bonus, I can move in about 3 inches closer to the mic for more personal reads.

Oh yeah… It does a great job stopping plosives (P’s and B’s)!  $32 well spent.  🙂
