Highest quality pop-screen ?

What would you recommend as a really high quality pop-screen for LD mic, which would reasonably reduce pops and keep the rest of frequency spectrum untouched ?

I believe you want the Pauly Superscreen.

I'm not sure it's the "highest quality" but I'm very happy with my Stedman

I use a cheap one myself and it seems to work fine also. I think it's a Raxxess or something that I got at Guitar Center or Sam Ash.

I have a Sennheiser pop screen, but it quite eats high frequencies ... so I wonder whether some other pop screens may work better

i have used every single nylon or soft material pop filter out there... (except for the pauly) and have experience some level of high end loss on ALL of them... the stedman does the best job (as it's made of metal) of absorbing plosives without absorbing the top end.

I agree we found the Stedman kept the top end in tact and also stops plosives better. Coincidentally I think my old one was a Raxcess, but it went to a good home.

You can also wash the Stedman, which makes it better from a hygiene point of view.

There is lot of praise about Pauly superscreen and it is mentioned that it is a German product. But I cannot find any link to some German distributors, just US. It would be funny if I buy it from US ... Anyone would know where to get it in Germany ?
Any link to Stedman ?

I have found nothing to be better than the Royer PS-101. It's metal and actually uses slanted holes to deflect wind. Almost completely transparent as far as audio is concerned and does the best plosive protection ever.

Look here and scroll to the bottom of the page.

The Stedman is actually rebranded under several names from what I understand.

And of course they're all great!

Those slanted holes screwed me one day. If the wind screen is set up backwards (don't let the new runner set the wind screen), then all the air is directed at the mic instead of away from it. Personally, I like the old fassion panty hose model.

Pauly / Pauli popscreen :

at bottom.

Schoeps used to list them in their catalog as an accessory so they can probably be ordered through any of their dealers as well.

I like the metal mesh, as you can wash all the spittle off, and it never tears

I don't like the Stedman, I've used it a few years. I'm going to try Pauly soon. Here's some of the problems with the louvered grills:

I have an Avant Electronics pop filter on its way to me. Apparantly, this thing is the shiz.
I will let you know how it works out.

I just got an R84, (no noise on this one), from Front End Audio and they threw in a Stedman Proscreen XL for free, (thanks again Warhead!). Works perfectly. Great design from my experience so far- Chafe

hey Mixerguy...where did you get that video from? The puppet bobbing his head. I seen that about three to four years ago on "The Gap" commercials a I feel out laughing. I love those commercials. I loved it so much that I bought the doll itself. Where can I find the commercial's?

Sorry for jacking this thread guys. Please forgive me!

I have the Pauly Superscreen. It really is nice, and attaches right to the microphone, none of the drooping you get from the cheap stand mounted windscreens.

I've pretty much stopped using pop filters. It's so easy to fix pops in a DAW that I'd just as soon not screw up the midrange and highs of the vocal sound.

As always, excellent point. Then again, a lot of mics these days are too bright anyway.

Gunter Wagner's pop filter is quite effective, and attractive; though I do believe it is U47 specific. Perhaps one could do some mods so as to affix it to another-sized mic body. He refers to it as the Beatle pop screen as it replicates one often seen in Abbey Road Studios during the hey-day of the Bs. Don't know if it is still available, and, it isn't inexpensive.
