I have a voice amp sorted now, but when I was in your position (thinking about how to do it all on a shoestring ) I thought about what I could adapt. I figured that actually physically making an amp set up would be a) beyond my meagre skills, and b) as, if not more, expensive as buying a radioshack/yoga amp.
My best idea (never carried out) came from my daughter. She has a fisher price cassette player with a mic, so she can sing along to her tapes. She started talking through it one day and said it sounded like Boba (she's 4 and has watched ESB more times than I care to work out!) I believe her exact words were, "listen daddy, I sound like your Bobo Fat" (her name for Boba.
I tried it and it's not hugely loud, but it's ok and it's a start.
Try scanning ebay for cheap kids toys that have mics and amps.
Well, What kind of electronics do you have lying around? I would check out radio shack for a cheap one. I bought mine on ebay for $50 and when i got it the price tag was still on it from radio shack and it was only $12.00:angry:angry
I was wodering if anyone has the stamatics on making a voice amp becuz if i have the stamatics i can build it. for those who dont know what stamatics is its a picture of where the wires and microchips go.
There still is radio shack ones around. I found 5 of them within a 20 mi radius. And they were $20. If you want one of those just call around radio shacks. thats what I did. there are a couple of guys that sell amp/mic systems on BSN for like $20-$30 but I dont know how well they sound.
Yup. I dont want to get into a shipping detail or anything but I live in south Jersey and thats where I found a couple. If you need help Ill call around here...find one and PM you where I found it if you want? Then you can arange them to ship it to you?
The wbsite doesnt have them. I heard they discontinued them? But As I said I found a bunch. So just call around and ask for the voice/amp mic. It was like $19.99 . Most of them that I called knew what I was talkning about.
Part number 277-1008C
Amplifier/speaker It was like $11.00 here and runs on 9v battery. RS also sell a cheap $5.00 mic that you can bust open and use the pick up part of the mic. It comes in a bag, usualy hung on a display rack. This is the setup I use in my biker scout, stormtrooper and fett helmets. Easy to mount in the helmet or seperate. For the money.....what can I say, acept........Can you here me now?
