"popper blockers" on live dynamic mics

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here tried these?  Unlike pop blockers used with condesors for recording, they install inside the mic ball head of the mic for live use. Probably simple to make your own for even cheaper.  I saw a you tube video a while back that seemed to indicate in the demonstration it can reduce unintentional plosives like P's.

Of course, having (or if needed, working on improving) good mic and vocal technique should greatly reduce those plosives anyway.  If these really work, could sort of be insurance especially if the mic doesn't good pop blocking ability (some dynamics ball grills naturally block plosives to a good degree).  With that said,  if they may degrade tonal quality would probably be better off with no pop blocker.
