Blue Yeti USB Microphone (Silver)
Employing a tri-capsule design that provides you with a variety of selectable polar patterns for flexibility in recording, the silver Yeti USB Microphone from Blue is capable of capturing your audio in up to 16-bit/48 kHz resolution. Depending on your sound source, you can select between stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, or bi-directional polar patterns for optimal results.
The mic has an integrated headphone amp with an independent gain control for latency-free monitoring. Microphone gain control as well as an instant mute function are available right on the device itself, while the included stand allows for pivoting in a variety of angles for ideal placement, with the added functionality of folding the mic down for storage and transport. The Yeti is Mac and Windows compatible, and includes a USB cable.
Yeti features controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute and microphone gain—putting you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you're experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.
The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack and allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delay. That means no more hearing a note 3 seconds after you played it. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using the control on the front of the microphone
Designed for Simplified Recording
Yeti doesn't mind getting pushed around, it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source. Once you've achieved the desired angle, simply hand-tighten the set knobs to secure it in place. Yeti is a side-address microphone, so you can capture the best sound by going face-to-face with it. The microphone can also be folded down for portability, or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand
Simply plug Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record. Yeti offers driver-free operation

Auray RF-5P-B Reflection Filter (Metal)
The RF-5P-B Reflection Filter from Auray is designed to improve the quality of voice recordings captured in your home studio, rehearsal studio or other untreated acoustic environment by absorbing and isolating the microphone from unwanted ambient reflections. By absorbing and diffusing these reflections, the RF-5P-B creates a closer and dryer sound that allows more control over the vocals. It can also be used for other applications such as recording an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar cabinet.
Five punched metal panels and a pyramidal, acoustic foam lining filter ambient noise and help prevent sound from reflecting back into the microphone. The two outermost panels are adjustable, allowing you to control how dry your
recording will be.
Whether it's a home studio or a rehearsal studio, for podcasting or broadcasting, the RF-5P-B Reflection Filter is designed to provide a portable solution for improved acoustic isolation.
Three Different Mounting Options
Threaded socket on the bottom can be mounted to a standard microphone stand, or the clamps on the back can be mounted to the shaft of a microphone stand with a boom arm. Also comes with non-slip feet for tabletop use
Auray PFMU-12 Universal Wire Mesh Pop Filter with 12" Gooseneck (Matte Black)
The matte black Auray PFMU-12 is a universal wire mesh pop filter offering sonically transparent control of plosives for podcasters, voiceover artists, narrators, and singers in home, project, and commercial recording studios. Its dual-layer wire mesh screen inhibits pops and distortion frequently caused by "p" and "b" sounds, yielding smoother vocal tracks that require less editing and processing in post-production. The screen also serves as a shield, preventing corrosion by keeping mouth-born moisture from collecting on your mic's capsule.
The PFMU-12's rectangular wraparound design imparts a pleasing visual aesthetic, and delivers consistent performance for various microphone styles and source-to-mic angles. The flexible 12" gooseneck ensures accurate placement and quick adjustment, even when swapping out microphones. Attachment and removal of the PFMU-12 is simple and fast via the durable metal C-clamp and convenient thumbscrew. A rubber grommet on the thumbscrew protects your mic stand's finish from scratches.
Three Different Mounting Options
Inhibits Problematic Plosives
In every recording of dialog or vocals, there are bound to be problematic plosives—"p" and "b" sounds that can cause distortion and distracting pops from bursts of air hitting the diaphragm of your microphone's capsule. This dual-layer wire mesh screen acts as a sonically transparent barrier, inhibiting the pops without compromising frequency response.
Effective Wraparound Design
Microphones come in a variety of shapes and styles, and the PFMU-12 is designed to accommodate all sorts. Its wraparound construction provides consistent protection for an array of capsule sizes, as well as reliable performance even if the performer shifts their position off-axis. Additionally, whereas traditional pop filters are round and glossy, the PFMU-12 brings an element of visual interest thanks to its rectangular shape and matte black finish.
Enhanced Voice Recording Quality
Whether you're podcasting, recording voiceovers, or tracking singers, effective control of plosives yields improvements in quality. By preventing plosives, the PFMU-12 allows the performer to get closer to the mic; the added detail and low-frequency presence resulting from this proximity are often beneficial for vocal tonality and impact.
Protects Capsule from Moisture
In addition to preventing plosives, the PFMU-12 shields your microphone's sensitive diaphragm against mouth-born moisture, which can cause corrosion and deteriorate sonic performance.
Simple Attachment & Removal
For efficient and stable positioning, the PFMU-12 features a thumbscrew fastener and a durable metal C-clamp with a maximum clamp width of 0.8 inches—wide enough to fit most mic stands or booms. A rubber grommet is utilized to protect your stand from scratches.
