Corona Virus hygiene

Recommended Posts

Corona Virus questions. After quarantine and isolation are lifted, what is a safe way to disinfect microphone pop filters and client headphones? Is there a disposable cover for cups of headphones that wouldn't alter the eq of the playback and the actual live take in a studio session? I thought of surgical hair bonnets for headphones but they would be too big even with the elastic. Something like that would also be nice to have when demoing headphones in a retail music store where other people with poor hygiene wear them. Think head lice.

Maybe some UV light.

Or alcohol in a spray bottle.

An sm 58 has  quite a bit of foam in the cover. you could unscrew that cover and lightly spray it.

The handle can be just wiped off with a disinfectant.

 

A virus needs to live on something. Like spit.

If you choose to use UV light, which would at least keep everything dry, be sure to get a UVC light.  Those black-lights I saved from the '60s are UVA and don't kill viruses.  You also need to be careful with UVC, you need to wear appropriate eye protection when using it.
