HOW TO Make Your Own  Microphone Pop-Filter

Popfilter1This article will show you how to make your own microphone pop-filter. A pop-filter is a small screen that goes between a microphone and your mouth to prevent sharp popping sounds (known as plosives) like “P” and “B” words from overloading the mic level and distorting. Commercially available pop-filters are expensive and can often cost 20 dollars or more. The pop-filter you can build here will cost less than $6 dollars. Link.

    Beat me to it! I recently built two of these for my podcast ( )and was in the process of writing up the HOW TO. Alas. The two main differences in my design were that I used plastic embroidery rings (because the wooden ones are thin and a bit dodgy), and I tried to more closely emulate a gooseneck with the use of copper grounding wire. They’re not as nice as the professional ones, but they’re certainly better than nothing.
