The MKPF1 is our 6" clamp-on pop filter that is essential for recording vocals. No matter how much you have invested in your microphone, a pop filter is absolutely necessary to ensure a professional vocal recording. Whether you are recording a singer or a spoken word/interview, nothing will ruin your recording session faster than the inevitable sibilance and pops that are produced by the human voice when it is recorded directly into a microphone without a pop filter.
Pops are created from words containing P's and B's. Try to say the words "pop" and "basketball" with your hand close to your mouth. You will feel the explosive energy of those letters. That extra burst of air, when it reaches a sensitive microphone, creates a sonic overload and will distort and potentially ruin a great vocal performance.
