HOW TO – Make a telephone handset microphone

Randofo writes – “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.”Link.
