The Sontronics ST-POP is a high-quality, dual nylon-layer pop filter for reducing sibilance and plosives when recording vocals and spoken word.
Okay, you don’t have to pop for a pop filter if you really don’t want to. After all, there’s the old and much cheaper pantyhose and wire coat hanger trick, provided you’re not at all concerned with professional appearances and results (and don’t mind a few nasty cracks about the head and ears from your girlfriend/wife). The Sontronics ST-POP is a professional-quality pop filter, an essential piece of studio kit for recording vocals or spoken word. It has a double layer of fine nylon mesh which traditionally gives smoother, less harsh results than metal pop filters
Sontronics ST-POP—Just the Facts:
- Dual-layer nylon-mesh pop screen
- Reduces sibilant and plosive sounds on vocals and spoken word
- Flexible gooseneck for easy positioning at any angle
- Strong screw clamp for fixing on to a mic stand
- Comes with spare cartridge
Sontronics ST-POP—Behind the Curtain
The Sontronics ST-POP has a dual-layer nylon-mesh cartridge measuring 188mm in diameter, secured in a strong plastic frame with an angled connector. This is fixed to an adjustable gooseneck arm and features a screw clamp to fix the pop screen to any size microphone stand or even the edge of a desk.
The ST-POP's mesh cartridge significantly reduces the popping noises associated with plosive consonants such as 'p' and 'b'. Similarly, the harshness caused by sibilant sounds – “s,” “z,” “sh,” “ch” – is also dramatically reduced, helping you capture the best possible performance from your vocalist. It's also useful for limiting the sound pressure on more powerful wind or brass instruments or even drums and guitar amps.
Maintenance is easy: just unscrew the clamp at the bottom of the ring and remove the nylon cartridge. This can be cleaned in warm, soapy water and left to dry naturally. A replacement nylon cartridge is also included so that your Sontronics pop screen is always there when you need it.
What the pros are saying about the ST-POP
"People often overlook pop-shields, but they are such an indispensable tool for anyone recording vocals. The ST-POP is fantastic and gives better, more subtle results than any other pop-shield I've ever tried. It's a winner!" — Mike Rose, Writer/Producer/Engineer
