I just went to the other thread.
I didn't know you were involved with the product, cool.
I see it's metal, and it's a tool, so I guess I can also drain my pasta with it!
heh

I guess I'll have to try it...
Will my Coles stick to it as it does with Stedman?

Am I doing something wrong with the metal ones? About 6 inches or so off the mic (depending on the song/singer/etc) and right up on the filter?
anything you put in front of a mic, will have a effect on the sound, just the same as different rooms, sound better or worse.
a metal screen would not necessarily have be the culprit, remember, most mics have metal screens, and in many cases multiple layers of metal screen.
lots of elements can come into the equation, a ring, or the lack of, the screen, mesh size, wire diameter, even wire type. everything matters, at least in my humble view.
and is nothing against the Stedman ( or any other pop filter for that matter ), they are tried and loved by many a engineer.

the Blast Pad will not still to the Coles or ( any other ), ribbon mic: )~ no matter how close ( unless you glue it some how ).


P.S.

Ask Gunter about the Abbey Road-style pop filters he makes every now and then. Their sound influence is exactly tailored to the U47 grille. Plus it looks great, if you`re into the style. Apart from that, I also really like the Pauly. I remember never being satisfied with the K&M one (sucked out the high end clarity ever so slightly, to my ear). That problem was gone with the Pauly.

Listen, I really don't want to go on and on about the Blast pad, because it starts to feel like hype.
But the truth of the matter is, it really works well. Unbelievably well.

Anyone ever experiment with using a dome shaped sieve? Haven't yet compared one but I thought it might be advantageous to disperse the pop with a dome rather than against a flat screen.

Also, what other purpose does the blast pad serve?

it drops pressure, so it allows you to use mics in settings where one might otherwise not. i have friends using condensers on amp in ways they could not in the past, ribbons mics up close on kick or guitar cabs, horn and harps straight in.

The Blast Pad definitely rocks my face off. No other pop filter is in use at my studio now.

I would steer clear of the Steadman. They sound ok, kind of metallic, they do stop plosives but they do not stop spit from getting onto your mic capsule. After using one for a year on my U87 I ended up paying Klaus Heyne hundreds of dollars to clean the capsule. Stick with traditional designs.

My understanding is that the HΓ₯kan p110 pop killer is about the best popper-stopper there is.




I think it comes complete with a spare foam and that the foam itself was heavily researched to find the best open-cell foam that would prevent pops without changing the character of the sound.

Also - the simple wire frame means that there is no hard edge round the popper-stopper that could reflect sound at high frequencies.

And it's very affordable.
