Anyone know a good, inexpensive way to record the sounds off of a stethoscope? I'd like to get some recordings of the inside of the body.

    I downvoted because you have not enough information on what you already tried. Nor is there information about your setup/gear. Mar 14 '14 at 17:55

It's not clear what type of gear you already have. But check out this video with Diego Stocco. He uses a stethoscope and I think he inserted a lavalier microphone in the tube. Not sure, but worth a try.


Some weeks ago I put an inexpensive electret capsule inside the tube of a stethoscope and recorded my stomach and my heartbeat. I paid about 2euros for the capsule and the recordings turned out to be pretty usuable.
