    So what do you do when you don't have a pop filter on hand, but you need to lay down some vocal tracks? Steal someones pringle can and cut the bottom off and duct tape it to your mic and duct tape some cloth over the front.........yeahhhhh. Hey it works, I got some of that bullhorn midrange sound, because yeah, you're talking through a can, but that was easilly eq'ed out. You'll be seeing the pringles mic popping up at home rap studios nation wide.



    The pringles mic is also ran through a Behringer guitar head on "tube preamp" model. This gives me tons of great tube sound. Sarcasm doesn't go over well on the internet. Maybe the topic of this post should be "what happens when you dont have a job."
  2. Hey, I made an antenna for wireless networking out of a pringles can once. Those puppies get more versatile everyday. When I was in 5th grade science we made a solar hot dog cooker out of one.

    to avoid the bullorn sound try bending a wire hanger into a circle then stretching some tights/pantyhose over it.

    I remember watching a TV programme about hackers driving around spying on corporate networks. If my memory serves me correctly, the Pringles can was an indespensible tool. Is there no end to the uses for these?!?!

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone made a U47 out of one :wink:

    so when you search google for pringles can the first 8 results are about them being used as wireless internet antennas. who knew?
  6. Actually, I live about 3/4 mile from the college here and I use it to access their wireless network. I usually get an 85-92% signal strength depending on the weather. Its kinda funny since I can sit on campus and get a weaker signal than 3/4 mile away. :twisted:
