Cheap mic from a telephone

Just soldered a jack on a ‘Cobra’ telephone, turning this danish classic model it into a microphone. In fact, I thought the mic in it sounded at little too good, so I connected the jack to the earpiece for that really rusty ‘telephone’ sound. Why do something halfway crappy, when it could be 200% lo-fi?

On the left is a cheap Aiwa mic which also got a jack while I had the soldering iron out (only burned my fingers once!)

    I remember my parents had one of those phones. Don’t know where it is now.

    Excellent idea. Do we get a sound sample?
