    Robust Vocal Tracks
    By minimizing vocal plosives, vocalists can move closer to the microphone and train their voice directly on the mic capsule for a more rich, centered, warm, and robust track.
    Protects Against Corrosive Moisture
    In addition to protecting your take from vocal plosives, the PFNY-6 protects your mic capsule from corrosive moisture.
    Easy to Attach
