Crank Sturgeon Husoscope 2nd Edition
The Husoscope is lo-fi microphone. It features the classic medical stethoscope head and is terminated to a tiny “electret style” microphone element. (Located near the stethoscope, so try not to tug too hard). The Husoscope will only work with portable cassette and digital recorders (Drs) which feature “plug-in power”. These devices will actually have the words “plug-in power” printed next to the mic input or in the devices pulldown menu. It’s also important to keep in mind that electret microphones require a tiny bit of voltage in order to work, which is not to be confused with one’s mixer which has that +48 phantom power button (phantom power is designed for mics counting active electronic circuitry). All that is to say, while the Husoscope is a little picky, with the right device it can deliver years of joyful burble, making one’s voice sound like a circus barker trapped inside an ancient gramophone.
Disclosure: Crank Sturgeon has done their best to test out the Husoscope on every darn unit we can get our grubby mittens on. The Husoscope sounds fantastic with the newer Zoom & Tascam DRs. Smaller digital dictaphones also work great, such as the venerable Sony IC recorder.
