What size windshield do I need?

plopkappen rij

Windshields (windscreens, popfilters, microphone covers) are the foam covers/shields that are placed over the
voice section of the microphone. The purpose is to avoid the popping and rustling with the pronunciation of,
among others, the letters P, F and S and to prevent the whooshing sound of the wind with outdoor use.

The windshields are available in round, elongated, triangular, square sizes and are used with microphones,
singing microphones, headsets, clip-on microphones. These microphones are also different in
size; finding a proper
windshield
is therefore of great importance. If the windshield is too small or too short, it might tear when placing.
A windshield that is too big, will slide or fall off. In the webshop there is a list of matching microphones with each windshield.

What size windshield do I need?

Measure the circumference of the microphonehead and the length of the speech section where the windshield must be placed.
See which bore size (inner diameter) and depth of the windshield match.
