Yuri Föhn Home - Hacked Telephone Mic Workshop
29.2.2020 @ 10:00
In this workshop we hack an old telephone in a radio voice mic.
A simple to follow step-by-step hands on DIY workshop in which you learn to solder. Suitable for everybody, no special skills required. In addition to the phone hack, the mic is employed with a so called 'kill switch' that mutes the sound when you press it. This can be handy in live situation to avoid undesired feedback and you can create nice vocal stutter effects with it. The kill switch is typically known among guitarists as the effect Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) has on his guitar.
The mic will have a jack output which is convenient in combination with guitar pedals (reverb and delay sound specifically good with this mic).
** SPECIAL Edition including the Complete Ericsson Twintoon Phone Set ******
Normally this workshop is only the horn. In this special edition hosted by Third Space we hack the complete phone including the receiver.
The numbers we also hack as synth featuring the sounds you hear when you call someone.
The Twintoon was produced in white, grey, black and red.
