#7 Mini Vocal Booth

 

More and more USB desktop mics are being released all the time.  And, musicians and webcasters seem to like the direct plug n’ record convenience that these mics provide.  

 

Just like their more professional cousins, these condenser mic pick up sound and frequencies from the back side of the diaphragm as well.  A little mini vocal booth can reduce the amount of these sounds which can include your voice or guitar reflected off the wall, room noise and stray computer sounds, such as the cooling fan.

 

Here is a simple and inexpensive way to construct a mini vocal booth that remedies these ills.

Later on in our Top 10 D.I.Y projects for musicians, we have instructions for a GoBo semi-circular reflection filter.  Next up is #6: a guitar strap you can make quickly when you left yours at home.
