I had a singer coming over who was going to lay down a final track on something we’ve been working on. And I had misplaced my pop screen. And I had an hour to come up with a solution.
So I went down to the 99 cent store (plenty in my neighborhood) and bought a splatter guard and a pair of black pantyhose. A splatter guard is for a pretty good-sized pan, but it was the only thing I could find in the right shape.
When I came home, I had a pleasant surprise– the splatter guard handle fit into one of my microphone clips! So when I set it up, it looked almost professional.
It is a jumbo mofo though. But it works really nice. And it cost me $2, and it took 15 minutes to make.
