I wanted to improve the sound experience of my Blue Yeti microphone.
A commercial isolation shield is far too expensive for what it is ... so let's do it yourself !
It is based on a Ikea Lampshade, some "papier maché" and acoustic isolation foam.
Total cost : 20 eur !
Step 1: Cut the Lampshade
The Lampshade comes from Ikea. Reference is BRUNSTA and it is 35 cm high.
Cut an opening on the top for the mic.
Step 2: Glue the "Papier Maché"
Prepare some wall paper paste and soak some cardboard in it.
When it is wet and soft, paste in on the lambshade frame on both sides.
Put at least two layers. Let it dry one or two days.
Step 3: Add Acoustic Foam
Get some acoustic foam in the local shop.
Insert the foam inside and fix it with with double face adhesive paper.
Step 4: Test It ..
Finish by wrapping with a XXL panty as anti-pop !!
You should see a difference, less echo, muffled sound .. better indeed !
