THIS SET came with two recordable cards. A card will allow you to record about 20 seconds of sound. We recorded several times before we were satsfied, with no loss in quality. Pulled off the tab cover when done, to disable the re- record feature, although it could be put back on. It was bigger than we thought it would be, but it worked. We used it to record the intro to phantom of the opera, and attached it to the bottom of a handcrafted. phantom of the opera tribute trophy, The sound was great, and really carried-it was the finishing touch that the trophy needed. Would buy again without hesitation. - Hy T.
