Phantom of the Microphone Supply
Balanced circuit using just two transistors
Is it possible to make an inexpensive microphone with a phantom power supply? This is an interesting challenge when you’re starting with a cheap electret capsule and some electronics. The result will of course not be comparable to high-end microphones, but it is an interesting DIY project that easily sounds as good as microphones costing about £40.
