Pop filter with a good gooseneck?

Post by Matt C. » Thu Sep 14, 2017 3:18 pm

I'm searching for a new pop filter and wondering if anyone has recommendations. I'm not concerned with the sound so much as getting one that is easy to position and will stay in place. I have two cheap ones, one has a gooseneck that's so stiff it's hard to get into position, the other always sags out of place.

Ideas?

AKG makes a nice one. As with everything AKG I'm sure it's expensive but if you buy a new 414 they throw it in for free.

The Stedman has a descent gooseneck. Some prefer nylon/mesh over the perforated metal of the Stedman though...

I really like the multi-layer design of my Blue pop-filter, but it's just a hair too heavy for its gooseneck IMO.
