Fixed White Noise Problem with Flute & WhistleRecording a traditional wooden flute or low D tin whistle can be difficult. These fipple flutes generate a good deal of white noise. It's tought to EQ the noise out and maintain the quality of the voice of the insturment. Thanks to advice from a Sweetwater engineer, I use the Royer pop filter backed up by a fabric pop filter. This combo has fixed the problem. Really a great, simple, passive solution to an ever present problem

Royer PS-101 Pop FilterThis is truly a terrific pop filter. I achieve transparent sound whilst attenuating every wind blast so far. The best I've owned.

Very GoodSurprisingly good. Didn't think that anything other than foam would actually diminish the plosives on a vocal, proved me
wrong. You can clean it with water so it wont start smelling bad, and it's durable. Worth the money.

A better pop filterI'd been using a 6" "pantyhose" filter for years. It stopped plosives pretty well, and if there was some microscopic loss of fidelity it never bothered me. But some vocalists hated it because it made them feel claustrophobic to have this HUGE BLACK DOT hovering inches from their face. That's why I got a smaller filter, and I figured Royer knows what he's doing so I'd try this one. First of all, it's more pleasant to look at because you can see through it somewhat. As far as sound, I feel that there is more fidelity to tape using this filter, that it filters plosives better, and for some reason it seems to filter many harsh sibilants, as well. The pantyhose filter did not filter sibilants at all, not that I noticed, anyway. Who knows, maybe I'm imagining it. But overall I do find this more pleasant to work with and it doesn't break the bank, so I'd recommend it.

PS101 metal pop stopperThese are well made popper stoppers, but as the previous reviewer suggests, they do take some of the "top" off the sound getting to the mic. Not sure? Take the metal stopper and hold it near your ear. Things sound different coming thru from the other side, shouldn't but it does. Cloth ones sound the same. Try it.

A great pop stopperThis is a great addition to a mic locker. I use mine every day. It's definitely more durable than most pop stoppers. And its easier to clean. Does it color the sound less? I dunno. Panty hose poppers may cut a db off the highs. Maybe the metal has its own resonant probs. But that stuff is so minimal it all means nothing in the end. This is definitely a better stopper for hip hop (in fact, I bought it because the hip hop clients were popping my mics with the cloth stoppers). Only cons are that it can be dangerous if you bop it (it can cut a client because of the edges). And more important, it definitely will pick up on mic if the client bops it (you cannot usually hear a noise if a client bops a cloth one). Best bet for hip hop or screaming metal gods? I double up. Metal one towards mic, cloth one towards client. And if you think its taking away some of the hi end of the voice, that's what God made EQ for. At least the mic is safe. Trust me, If you get this stopper, you wont be sorry! Esp if you do hard singers.
