The Piperophone

My previous attempt at a microphone for Hecktate’s vocalist Jon was a roaring failure. Not because it didn’t work, but because it was far too noisy and didn’t really suit his style of running around and destroying things on stage.
So I’ve come up with a much sturdier solution…
Amazingly simple, Copper pipe, Hose clips, in one end is the small condenser microphone element from an old tape recorder and the other end an unwanted XLR connection held in place with a silicone sealant.
It does have the draw back of looking like a pipebomb. So i’m also going to make a small carrycase for it.
