    Found this article on how to make your own pop filter.

    Yes, it uses the old method of nylon stockings and a wire hanger :D
    Thoughts?

    I just sing so much better through pantyhose that has been worn by a twenty year old hottie, just that is getting harder and harder to find at my age LOL

    People have been doing variations of that pop filter project for years, they work just fine.
    Good luck talking that hottie out of her stockings.

    Embroidery hoops/needlepoint hoops look SO much better, though.

    Test with different materials. Not every nylon stockings are suitable. Sooner or later you will get some decent stuff.

    They used to be 18 and you used to be 23. But, that's a long story now isn't it? :p

    The foot lives! And, don't worry bout the story. I have my own version full of doctors visits and itches. Ah to be young and stoopid again.

    The stocking versions work great, I've used one for years. However here's another super simple option to consider that works pretty well too...
