Home Studio Gear

There are tons of gadgets and gear packages out there for self-taping and voice over studio creation, but researching and reading reviews can be maddening, if not mind-numbing. That’s why I’ve put together this collection go super-high-quality gear, all of which I’ve used and much if which I own. The best thing about this list is that all of these items are very affordable.


This affordable Ring LIght Kit is perfect for self-tapes and content creation. I use this ring light for recording my training videos and for my online meetings.


I personally use this kit all the time for small shoots, short films, and content creation. These LED panels are exactly the same as ones that cost 5x as much.

This affordable and complete home studio backdrop system is great for those who want a permanent setup at home. With several backdrops and continuous lighting, take your self-tapes and content creation to the next level.

5’x6.5′ Gray & Blue Double-Sided Pop-Up Collapsible Backdrop for Video & Photo. This is great for self-tapes when you’re traveling, and for those who don’t have a permanent setup at home.

iPhone Shotgun Mic
Pro sound is essential to get the best quality videos. This is a great shotgun mic that plugs directly into your iPhone, and it’s made by a top audio company .


I personally use this Blue Yeti podcast mic all the time for content creation. The sound is great, and crystal clear.

This is the same tension armand pop filter set I usue with the Blue Yeti. It comes with a shock mount that fits most mics. It’s great if you want a permanent desktop setup to create your content.


I personally use it when I record anything and everything. It's the best alternative to having a booth or using your closet 😂
