Metal windscreen vs Foam windscreen for MX418s

FAQ #1920 Updated February 16, 2018

Question:

I'm a big fan of your Microflex goosenecks. Unfortunately some presenters insist on eating them. The A99WS works pretty well, but I was wondering if the locking metal windscreen A412MWS was any more effective in reducing plosives.

Answer:

The A99MWS is more effective than the A412WS because it surrounds the mic element with more "dead air". The effectiveness of a windscreen is a direct function of its diameter: bigger is better.

Have you tried an omnidirectional capsule (R183B) on the mic? An omni capsule is very resistant to plosives.
