Pete's Place Audio launches Blast Pad

Pete's Place Audio has introduced the Blast Pad, a unique filter designed by Pan 60 to protect microphones used in high-SPL applications. The Blast Pad is a chambered dual-screen filter with six ports around the outer edge of its circumference. The main body structure is made of corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum, while the filter mesh consists of two different-sized stainless steel screens.

Over time, high sound pressure levels – from kick drums, amp stacks, horns, harmonicas, powerful vocalists, and the like – can ultimately distort and/or damage ribbon and large diaphragm condenser microphones. The Blast Pad effectively minimizes the air movement received by the mic, protecting it while transparently taming plosives that can ruin an otherwise great take.

Weighing slightly over five ounces, the product features a 5in diameter with a 4in opening, plus a mount for a standard microphone stand or gooseneck. It is easily cleaned with soap and water, is built to last a lifetime.
