From Our Research Team:
Isolate Your Mic with MudGuardIs muddy sound ruining your mixes? You need MudGuard. The Auralex MudGuard is a microphone isolation shield that reduces or eliminates external noise bleed and filters out external overtones. MudGuard is engineered for maximum effectiveness using Studiofoam to reduce excessive room ambience and off-axis sound. Simple to use, MudGuard mounts directly to most mic stands and clips. Use it to isolate, for instance, a vocalist in the same room with the rest of the band - or a vibraphone player positioned near the drummer. You get the idea.
Cleaner mic signals, free of unwelcome bleed, are easier to work with and give you cleaner-sounding mixes. MudGuard is one of those affordable studio tools that belong in every studio's mic locker. If you don't have an iso booth (or two), check out MudGuard - it's the next best thing.

MudGuard Is Sweet!
by Bob from Rochester Hills, MI, USAI got this MudGuard after several recommendations from audio engineers who I worked with. I am a voice-over artist with a modest home studio and I needed some sound treatment to improve the audio audi... read more [+]tions I was recording and sending to clients. MudGuard nailed it. My recording booth area is quite small, and the MudGuard fits in nicely. A suggestion: I put it on a standard mic boom stand, upside down, and then ordered the Adjustable Boom Strap (ABS) from Voice-Over Essentials.com to prevent any tipping. Very satisfied with the results! close [-]
