And, at last check, they still cost $2 at the local Dollar Store

did A – B testing with and without a nerf ball. It reduced
the highs. The RE 20 sounded more crisp without it, so I
always took it off when recording my spots. Others wanted
it on. They do help reduce wind noise and pops.

Not a bad idea using nerf balls. Did it
color the response on the mic?

On a budget? For years I have used the Nerf Balls that
are 3 to 4 inches in diameter, carved out with an Exacto
knife. They work very good in wind, outdoors. Many
years ago, I got laughed at when recording an outdoor
press conference in a strong wind. Later that day, I
was getting calls from the area TV stations wanting to
know if I'd send them my audio so they could sync it up
with their video. I did share. My wife told me I
should have charged them for it. She's TOUGH

How about the Shure rings with
the thin stretchy fabric that are connected to a
gooseneck and clamp? I have had very good success
with them on Shure SM81 mics and the cheaper BG4.1

I'm using two
AKG 414's in a talk studio and I've got a
problem with plosives. I've got your typical
foam windscreens on them...the kind that fit
an RE20...but that's not doing the job.
Does anyone have
a particular pop filter that works best for
killing the pops on side-address condensers?
The talent is fairly
close...within 6 or 8 inches of the mic...but
not using it at the same proximity as would be
used with an RE20 or SM7.
