This question is from Dave S. a student at Berklee in Boston:
I just got a mic and pop filter boomstand (clamp). But cant tell where I’m supposed to tighten the filter anti-pop. And how far from the vocalist should it be?
No matter where the pop-filter is on the mic stand – the extent to which lies between the mouth and the microphone so that can do its job (I call it a language “guard”), which will be good to go. Sometimes they join another mic stand … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_filter Pop_Filters And better to ask the question if you know … it’s a good way to learn. I did not think it was stupid at all – especially if you’re new to this …
