I'll probably regret this, but I've been intrigued by some experiments I've been trying.

I'd be interested to know what others think. Can it be this easy and cheap? Is it an option folks on a budget might find useful?

Here's a whole song recorded using this thing:

If it suits my voice (darkish, with sibilance focused around 3-kHz) what else might it suit?
