DIY Telephone Handset Microphone


The DIY Telephone Handset Microphone. You know, to make your vocals sound like they’re coming from the bottom of a 200 foot well, under water, through a…er…telephone handset. Yeah well, let’s just assume you’ve got lots of time on your hands, OK?

 Some time ago my girlfriend asked me if I would make her one of those telephone microphones like the kind that all of those hipster bands have. So, I of course told her I would. Much time passed… and then I made this. This is designed to work with the old-style handsets with the carbon mics inside (see picture). It probably won’t work with most newer handsets. I’m sure twelve year olds in 1994 used to call this a “purple polk-a-dot box.” I apologize for my |33t [email protected]><0r ignorance.
