Well, I just tested the windscreens from the
Sony PD mic and the AT windscreen for the
AT4073 and they had almost no effect in
reducing plosives. At one time I had a larger
ball-shaped, velour-covered windscreen that
had thicker foam than the ones I've tried
but I lost that one so can't try it.
I will say that I've tried holding nylon
hose in front of the mic and it was much
more effective than the windscreens I
tried.

Just ran across this new product. It's a pop filter
designed for small-diaphragm mics. I like
that it has a shorter gooseneck. Some have
a 15" gooseneck, which is more than I need.
Just wonder how a metal screen (such as this
new product has) compares to mesh?
From the picture it looks like it's designed
to attach to the mic itself!

Gotta say, tried using one of those sauce spatter
covers, used for cooking, with a metal wire grill, in front
of a mic to see how it would work for plosives -- and
to my surprise, it worked pretty good! Far better
than the stock foam windscreens that come with
the Sony PD stock mic and the AT4073 mic.
The key was that the cover was atleast an inch
away from the mic.

You could also try Spot's suggestion of a pencil taped vertically on the mic to cut down on pops.

Good luck.

Steadman has been selling the same sort of thing for 5 years or so; a perforated metal plate. They have 2 different meshes.

The whole explanation of "directs the plosive away from the mic" thing is a bit too weird for me. A plosive is a pretty wide blast of air. I don't think it's possible to change its direction without having at least some of the "upper" air be detoured down to the capsule.

But that's just me. They do work, btw. I have two.

Regards,

Ty
