Microphones Microphone Pop Shield

Indeed, can't see any need normally. Pop shields are mostly used to stop the pop sound caused by close miked vocalists when singing plosives - sounds like P and B. The shield breaks up the low frequency wave front but lets higher frequencies pass unimpeded. Might be a need if you were playing a close miked bari or bass and using a sharp tongued attack or if you used slap tonguing (eg as Stump Evans or Coleman Hawkins in the 1920s) but surely no-one does these days.
