DIY Microphone Pop Screen
It’s always a great joy to mod things for no real reason other than to be able to prove to yourself that you could do it. It’s even better when the mod actually has a purpose, and can save you some serious cash at the same time. A perfect example of this is Jake Ludington’s homemade microphone pop screen. You see, when talking into a mic, the p’s and b’s can sometimes spike the audio signal which distorts the sound. A pop screen solves this problem, as it absorbs whatever it is that causes that spike in the first place. I have casually shopped for pop screens before, and they aren’t cheap. That is what makes Jake’s so appealing. All you need is a 6” embroidery hoop, generic pantyhose, 1/2-inch split flex tubing, 2 feet 10-2 wire, 7.5” black zip ties, 1 1/4” compression fitting (from plumbing), and a 1” spring clamp. Get all this together, and it will cost less than ten bucks. Full assembly instructions at Jake’s site.
