Use this Gear Guide to buy any missing pieces to your equipment setup. There are two types of things listed here.

  1. Equipment

  2. Our favorite set pieces you may want to steal!


audio technica at8035 boom microphone


Our favorite boom microphone you can mount above you or below you. Be sure to eliminate all room noise and echo!



These are our favorite lapel microphones! A lapel mic is going to help eliminate echo and noise because it’s closer to you. Downside is that you have to put it on each time.



This is a great wired lapel microphone. You’ll need an XLR cable (be sure to choose the right length for your space) that goes into your camera. The benefits of a wired microphone is no interference (important if you’ll also use this at events), and it’s a lower cost over wireless.


neewer led light


Low priced LED lights that work great! We like to mix LEDs with with softboxes (below) for a softer look.



We use these with LED’s, and on our simpler sets we use ONLY these. If you’re looking for low budget lights, these are fantastic!

NOTE: Buying one set of these gives you 2 lights.


backdrop holder


You can either tack the backdrop to the wall or put it in a frame like this!

vanguard alta pro tripod


Lots of flexibility in this tripod! You’ll need a tripod for your camera, and this is our favorite! Cheaper ones we’ve tried don’t have a long shelf life.

tripod wheels


Allows for easy moving around a floor. Won’t work for high pile carpet.

light stand


Light stand for your lights. You either need to put your lights on a Light Stand or one of the trussing solutions below.
