Ghost Hunting Microcassette Recorder

Buy Microcassette Recorders Directly or visit our store of over 100 ghost hunting tools!

 

Microcassette Recorder- Any quality micro-cassette recorder with its smaller profile will lend itself to be stored and used unobtrusively while ghost hunting.  Some features to look for on your unit would be a microphone input jack with a separate ear piece output.  Having these separate jacks will be very useful ghost hunting.  Microcassette recorder for EVP research and ghost hunting

 

While we at P.I.R.O. and most of the folks at GetGhostGear.com used full sized cassette tape decks for EVP work, and witness interviews in the 1980s, these microcassettes were super helpful through the 1990s!  Many new ghost hunters are using the digital voice recorders.  These are a great addition to the microcassette recorders used for ghost hunting.

First and foremost while collecting EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomenon with the internal stock microphone can yield confusing and less credible data.  The internal microphone can actually record its own internal parts moving creating many unusual sounds that may be mistaken for other worldly things such as EVPís.  The other main reason we don't bother with the internal stock microphone is that it's not usually capable of capturing the wide range of noise that happen on varying frequencies and volumes.  Noise or sound is measured by frequency in hertz and volume in decibels (more on this under the External Microphone).  The human ear can on average notice audible frequencies between 20htz and 20,000htz.  Using a microphone with a capture capability above and or below these frequencies would be ideal for monitoring sounds not monitored by your investigators ears.  The eventual digitizing of your recordings will allow you to analyze the data with computer software for potential anomalies.  We at GetGhostGear.com and P.I.R.O. (Paranormal Investigating Researchers Organization) both had worked with EVPs in the late 1980s through the 1990s.  At this time we use tape recorders and digital recorders as a way for each investigator to document the investigation at their specific location.  This keeps things easier for the investigator instead of stopping and hand writing every feeling, sneeze and task down on paper.  The theories surrounding EVPs are wrought with uncontrollable variables.  One more little known factoid about tape recorders and EVP work would be the accidental antenna phenomenon (AAP).

 

The AAP is said to occur when the construction of the tape recorder allows for the internal parts to act as a radio antenna.  This is going to usually sound quite weird for the typical user.  For the ghost hunting user, this might sound, well exactly what they might be looking for.  Typically when to metal pieces or plates are in too close of a proximity and in the perfect environmental position they are able to pick up radio signals and transfer at least portions to the tape or speaker on the unit itself [*citation needed].

 

For those of you still interested in attempting to acquire EVPs, there are some procedures you can follow to help reduce the false positives.  As we mentioned earlier use a quality external microphone.  Do not walk around with the tape recorder in your hand.  Place the unit in a secure location that is as clear from air movement, or movable structural objects such as heavily used doors.  Never reuse tapes, always new.  Implementing a system for identifying new and used tapes and make sure everyone who needs to understands it.  For those still brave enough to acquire EVPs; GetGhostGear.com carries many digital based recorders, tape and microcassette based recorders, free audio analyzing software, many metaphysical EVP tools as well as several spirit communication packages.

 

A low battery warning light feature we consider a must even though a simple yet over looked item, it can serve as a reminder about soon to be corrupted and worthless data due to low power.  First and foremost LEAVE IT ON AT ALL TIMES you never know whatís going to happen while ghost hunting.  Tape Recorders for ghost hunting is a great way to back up your digital evp recordings!
