This is my partial build of Andrew Jones's Drop Bag:

wavreport.com/2016/11/03/tutorial-diy-audio-drop-bag/

I call it a partial build because I didn't modify the top of the bag the way Andrew did. This makes it a real PITA to use as a sound bag because you don't have easy, clear access to the controls. But it makes it really nice for making recordings of crowd ambiances. Turn it on, zip it shut, and go!

To give myself extra recording time without having to worry about batteries, this build also includes a Talentcell 12V battery pack modified using another of Andrew's articles on Wavreport.com:

wavreport.com/2017/11/29/batteries-part-2-diy-modding-the...

Crammed into the bag is a Zoom F8 field recorder, the aforementioned Talentcell battery pack, two EM-172 omni mics clipped to either side of the front pouch, and a set of earbuds for monitoring.

The position of the mics isn't accidental. The front pouch acts as a partial baffle, and the separation between the omnis is almost that of a human head. Makes for a very compact partially baffled stereo array. (Besides, the bag had two loops of fabric right there, so it was kind of begging to have mics clipped to it!)

Zipped shut it's a very innocuous bag. The microphones blend, and no one really pays it any mind.

This is a DIY microphone using Homero Leal's v.39b Pimped Alice board and a 34mm LDC capsule, all squeezed into a generic BM-700 style body.

Inside the 34mm LDC Alice you can see Homero's v.39b Pimped Alice board.

The real charm with this board is that it includes circuitry for providing bias voltage to non-electret capsules. It will also work happily with electret capsules. It's easily the most flexible DIY microphone PCB I've seen.

BM-700 and BM-800 bodies have a particular screw pattern on the top plate for which I've been designing saddle/post combinations for a variety of capsules. This was my first 34mm large diameter condenser. It uses the same anti-vibration system as my other mounts, but rather than gluing the capsules into the saddle, I used the threaded holes in the capsule.
