Sexy Pop-Filter Tip

Here is something I have been doing for years, but have never seen done elsewhere (I'm sure it's common though.) It’s simple, extremely cheap, and it works!

Advantages:

Is easy to use in conjunction with a Stedman style filter

Helps protect the entire mic from projectile spit

Maintains the mics anonymity during bank heists

Many colors to choose from

Allows you to work the mic closer while killing pops

Works great for doing group vocals since it covers the entire grill

Looks kind of cool


Cons:

May embarrass the mic and give it a complex

For men - The cashier might give you "that look" when you buy the panty hose

Looks kind of stupid

LOL, you're a funny guy

Interesting angle....never tried it, other than using panty hose on the homemade coat hanger...

A handy trick for live mics in windy condition: use a (NON-LUBRICATED!) condom.

One possible caveat, I probably wouldn’t use this technique with a tube mic.

Just be careful to keep the seams straight

You could do the suspension in satin garter straps heh

I use the fishnets, but like to go crotchless over the diaphragm...

Errrr Cool except for I use the pop filter to keep the artist a certain distance away from the mic..


Do i need them to back up? I just move the pop filter back and BAM artist instantly knows where they need to be.

I just use the panythose to tie them up in the corner. That way they can't get near the mic and I can go back to where it's safe behind the control room glass. heh

I like putting a pencil over the head basket.

It makes me look way less professional to my clients.

I honestly want them to think I suck at my job.

What about the Ripped 80's look for this? Might be more opulent.
