mic stand padding?

Post by Joey » Sat Mar 07, 2009 7:29 pm

I cant remember the name of the product or who makes it, but I recall being in guitar center and seeing a mic stand with some kind of half hexagonal padding around the area where the mic goes, i suppose to deaden the air around it

anyway, who makes these, and are they worth getting?

it could have been auralex, but this was a specific type of padding that attached to the mic stand and wrapped around the mic in a half hexagonal shape, probably to deaden the air around it

what I want to know is who makes those things, and are they really worth looking into? or do they deaden the 'room' too much

found a few:

http://www.realtraps.com/p_pvb.htm

RealTraps did some tests and says theirs beats the SE R for the same price, but whatever. i like that the PVB is bigger; just makes sense that it would block more sound. for the record, i haven't used any of these. hope this helps.
