Foam Pop Filter On Condenser Mic's When Recording Vocals?

Hey everyone.

I have a RØDE NT1-A, and I'm not a big fan of its pop filter. Now, I've seen the band Queen have a condenser mic, similar to that RØDE (in terms of look of the instrument), and they used a pop filter like this on it:

I asked a Guitar Center employee what he thinks about it, and he basically gave me a weird look, but in my head I was thinking that (QUEEN DID IT & THEY KICKED ASS) lol

Just compared the Royer PS-101 Pop Filter to my "Popper Stopper " and I like it a lot. Its made of steel so its obviously going to last forever compared to my nylon style with a run starting. It seems to be slightly clearer as well so I definitely recommend this. It is a bit heavier on a boom so that is something to take into consideration.

What other pop filters do you use?

A means of shielding microphone capsules from explosive burst of air from a performer's mouth. Made from an acoustically transparent material, pop filters can either be built into the surrounding mesh of the microphone itself, or more commonly made from material stretched across a separate circular form, and attached to a microphone stand close to the microphone.

Would this shockmount/pop filter fit a Shure SM57?

Pop Filters - Which to use?

Many of you know I am going to pick up a AT4040 next week. with a popfilter a preamp, for doing podcast development. I had a pop filter picked out, which was the kind that is a glove style goes over the top of the mic. There is also the other style which hangs in front of it and circular. Is there a audio benefit to either of them.

I opted for the glove style so it doesn't block so much space on my desk. But I figured I better ask now before I find that the circular windscreen is far better for me.
