Does pop filter protect mic from smoke. ?

Smoke has been used in the studio only about twice by somebody I know. I doubt those times will have an affect

    Have no idea because you don't state how much smoke, how long the smoke was in the room.  considering that mics have foam covering them, it's unlikely that any damage could have been done.  At the most, the mic will smell of the smoke if it had a smell, and it could have some residue on it depending upon the amount of smoke and the time it was in the room.

      The foam should be enough protection. Make sure you replace it after a smoker uses the mic. Don't worry. On top of the diaphragm that receives the sound in the mic is another filter so you're pretty much safe. What you have to watch out for are those dim-witted mic-droppers.
