Oohlala - first question ever on SSD!
So: I'm wondering if anyone here has experience building and using diy electret mics for field recording purposes? I am thinking of building one of these: http://www.scotthelmke.com/alice-mic.html
Did anyone here build and/or use one of these? How did it fare in terms of sound and, just as importantly, self noise?
I already bought this kit (yet to be built though): http://www.micbooster.com/products/diystereomicroph.html
Which should let me do the spaced omni's thing a bit better than the built in mics on my Sony PCM M10 allows for. The Primo capsules are reported to have very low self-noise, so that doesn't worry me.
