I wanted one of those filters too but just couldn't get the wallet out for it.. So... Here is one I made out of some left over 2" foam..
The main piece is a 2'X4' piece that I made "rigid" using thin narrow wooden slats screwed together with the foam between them.. One pair on each end and one in the middle. I frilled a small hole thru the top of each pair and ran a piece of insulated wire thru them. Then I cut two slats to run the length of each "side" from the center out to the end and I "tied" it with the insulated wire to the vertical pairs. Then to keep the thing from folding all the way together I cut one more slat and screwed it into the top pieces about 8" out from the center. Then I added some twine to wrap around the top of the nut on a mic stand to hang it there.. The bottom part under the mic is just another piece of the foam doubled over and held together with left over spray adhesive cut to fit and it is supported by a coathanger wrapped around the mic stand.. I cut a slit in it so it would slide around the mic cable and the mic stand to also help support it.. I like to play acoustic guitar and sing at the same time so this bottom part helps isolated the to mics a bit more.. It's a single mic stand with a detachable boom that the mic/shockmount is on.. Not shown is the second stand to hold the instrument mic(s) below the lower part. Total cost was zero (beats the SE price) as the foam was given to me, I had the screws, twine, insulated wire, coathanger and a 2X4 to make the slats out of.. And took about an hour to make..
Looks great, thanks for sharing! Do you have any other photos? I would really appreciate any photos of how the mic shockmount is attached plus any rear/underneath views.
Also would the one posted by Armadillo be ok for recording vocals aswell as voice over? Has anyone had a go at making one of these in the UK? What box did you use? Finally, has anyone made a mic stand mountable version of this?
