A pop filter is an anti-pop noise protection filter for microphones, typically used in a recording studio.
If you record sound at home then this instructable can help you make a really cheap pop filter.
It doen't matter if you record songs at home or like me do voice-overs for movies.
From time to time I make short movies and like to do the voice overs at home.
This pop filter comes in pretty handy. Especially because it's so easy and cheap to make, it's sure worth doing it.
Those professional ones in the store can be pretty expensive.
Step 1: Materials + Tools
As I mentioned before, it's really easy and cheap to make.
With these simple tools and some materials you'll be able to make one yourself.
- embroidery hoop 6" (6 inches or 15cm, doesn't really matter, but this is a good size.)
- steel coat hanger
- black tape (optional, just to give it a nice look)
For the 6" embroidery hoop I payed about $2 dollars and $1 for the pantyhose. The black tape was something I had laying around and the steel coat hanger... well... lets just say I'm missing one from my closet now :)
