Spent on a mic? Spend on a pop filter.
on 5 February 2015
If you've spent money on a decent mic and setup, learn from my cheapskate mistakes and spend money on a sturdy pop-filter.
Using a Rode Podcaster on a Rode Swivel, I can confirm that the clamp grip finds it tricky to hold on to the swivel arm. The neck screws into the clamp and is a reasonably loose connection meaning that the weight of the head causes the head to swing down and most of the time, out of position. In fact the only way I was able to get any use out of the pop filter was to have an entirely secondary mic stand just to attach the filter to so it was able to stand perfectly upright (the only position where it would not swing under its own weight).
It did at least reduce popping on the one session I put up with it for.
