Has anyone used the B1D as a close-speech pop guard for their Schoeps microphones?
I am specifically going to test it out with an MK41.
I need something that can withstand close pops by otherwise untrained speakers, at podiums for corporate events.
Nothing makes those executives turn around and glare at the sound mixer (me) at one of these events than a nice big POP (BOOOOOOMMMM) throughout the hotel's auditorium. I'd like more than anything to reply to them "It's your buddy up there - he doesn't know how to speak into a microphone correctly" but I don't think that will go over too well - they might not let me have any cannolis or pastries at the refreshment table (and you don't want that to happen... the continental breakfasts at these places consist of dried bacon, egg molds and yoplait yogurt!).
Any advice on a close-speech pop guard (that also looks good on camera) please let me know!
