There are extras you may want or need to purchase, such as a pop shield or pop filter (this is the circular disk that you see in front of a microphone usually made from a nylon material). If you’re using an XLR mic, you’ll also need an XLR cable — I use Jumperz, but Hosa are a cheaper option and Mogami are the best and most expensive. A microphone stand may be helpful too depending on whether your mic came with one included or if you’d like to stand up to read, etc.
