basicUcho /ˈbeɪsɪkukʰo:/ is a phantom-powered, high quality omni-directional electret microphone. Compared with regular built-in microphones supplied with many recorders, basicUcho has exceptionally low noise and high sensitivity. It is especially useful for recording delicate sounds and environments.
basicUcho has an industry-standard XLR connector for use with pro-sumer and professional field recorders and preamps.
The plastic part of the microphone body is professionally 3D-printed from plant-sourced PA11 nylon.
