Making a Paper Cup Microphone. Less than $10!

Published on Feb 26, 2019 LeoMakes

This one isn't directly synth related, but LeoMakes is a supporting member of the site, and some of you out there might find this one useful. You can use the mike with your synths and modular. :)

"Yes--it's true! You can make a microphone out of a paper cup, some magnets and some wire. It's definitely not going to replace any of my (or your) studio mics, but it's a fun lo-fi DIY project. Did I mention it was less than $10?

Have you built any microphones of your own? Do you have an experience repairing mics? Please share your wisdom and leave comments on how one might improve on this very basic (and hack-y) design!"

  1. Sam Battle could probably make one for free. And it would shoot flames.
