This project was to make a cheap and fast Pop Screen from household items.

Step 1: Supply's You Will Need

To start of you will need a few supply's:
-Metal Coat Hanger
-Shrink Tube
-Thin Kitchen Cloth/Fabric

Step 2: Creating the Screen Frame - Part 1

Start by cutting the coat hanger to get a straight piece.

Keep the left over pieces, these will become the mounting rig.

Now take the longest piece and bend it in to a circle, I suggest bending it around a poll or flower vase to get a non obscure circle.

Now that you have your screen frame of choice (size), You can trim off the extra metal so it makes a complete circle.

Step 3: Creating the Screen Frame - Part 2

This is where you will need the Shrink Tubing and Lighter.

Cut a 1” piece and put it on the wire over the seam.

Shrink the tubing so the inner glue holds the metal together. 

Step 4: Creating the Mounting Rig

Take one of the left over pieces of metal and bend the end in to a “L”.

Lay it on the screen frame and add some glue to it to keep it strong.

Step 5: Adding the Fabric

Lay your fabric flat, Add glue to you Screen Frame and press it firmly down on the fabric.

After the glue drys cut off the extra fabric.

Step 6: Your Done... YAY!

And thats a cheap and fast Pop Screen made from house hold items.

    this looks like it would get rid of too much high frequency content.. if you find that's the case when you comprae with/without, try singing across the front of the mic without the pop filter.

    When i was using it i did notice a huge loss in anything as it was for spoken word, i dont sing lol

    sorry for the REALLY LATE reply :(


    also, a nice cheap and quick version i have used is a pair of tights ver a loop of wire, you get two layers then too one each side of the wire!

    It stops the air from your mouth when you say words the start with P's and B's so you audio recording dose not have pops in it :)
