  3. It just doesn't seem like it's worth the time to make your own when
    they can be purchased so cheaply. Saving $20 but also investing the
    time in goofing around going out and buying the parts and then making
    it just seems like a poor cost/benefit ratio. But then again, cables
    can be bought dirt cheap and yet I still buy raw cable and connectors
    and solder all my own cables because I like the somewhat quiet and
    metitative process...

  5. He said it reduced sibilance.

    Of course it did, it reduces the high frequencies.

    All in all, I thought that it was an excellent article on a variation
    of the panty hose around a piece of coat hanger wind screen.

    Now, if I could find a quantity of the angled wire mesh that is used
    on some of the other wind screens, I'd either write an article on
    using it or start marketing the stuff. <G>

    I have two pieces of angled aluminum screen that would work, but they
    are the speaker grilles in my Jaguar, and using them is not cost

    Mine cost me $00.85 for an embroidery hoop. The rest of it was odd parts
    I had around, and a length of panty hose.

    Ever suddenly need a pop filter on a Sunday night? I have. I still use the
    ones I made then.

    Yeah, but that's when you show them how you did it, show them the
    article, AND the catalog entry for a ready-made unit...and tell them to
    make their own choice.

    But in a pinch, when the store is closed... I had to make a singer sing
    through a pop filter that smelled like perfume once. We really need a
    pop filter and had one within 5 minutes of making a phone call.
    sometimes recording is all about who you know.
