ok, now I know many artists have bad breath, so "them-there" pop filter sure got funky. How do u clean or should i say refreshen" yours?

I til to pull it away from the mic and spray it with a tiny bit of lysol from about 12-16 inches away.

dam.....i just thought about how funky the mics are..........LMAO heh mouth after mouth after mouth.

P.S. any big name cats with bad breath??

there is nothing worse than that smell of a stinky pop filter or mic.

at our studio, we have a vintage Neumann that absolutely REAKS when you smell the grill!!!! It is SOOOO nasty. Makes my stomach turn just thinking about it.

If you send it out for service, it will come back odor free... and nicer sounding.

BTW even the metal "steadman" pop filter gets funky, but you can wash it in the lounge's dishwasher.

by the way, who do you deal with as far as gear purchases and stuff around here? I'd like to find somebody to let me try out some stuff before i buy, more specifically some compressors for vocals.

I work @ the Discovery Channel, but I freelance at some tiny joints, including my own.

His flow is good, but at times I have him re-doing lines cuz his diction gets sloppy.

He's part of the Tri-County Gangsters. Or at least that's the people that he talks about in his rhymes.

We did drops for X102.3 in WPB last month, so he's getting some airplay up there.

Just wash that sucker in warm soapy water...

Some of that **** can smell almost as bad as putrid belly button fluff... which is very nasty indeed.

Dont EVER get near any rehearsal room mics. If you want a singer to buy their own mic, tell them exactly how nasty a 5 year old rehearsal room mic can smell (and look if you have to clean the inside)... uuuugh
