1887 - Emile Berliner Invents The Gramophone And Records
Berliner's disks (records) were the first sound recordings that could be mass-produced by creating master recordings from which molds were made. From each mold, hundreds of disks were pressed.
The Gramophone Company
|Item # GRM101
This kit gives you the ability to follow in Emile Berliner's footsteps and create an actual working gramophone recorder/player. Here at Neatstuff.net we pride ourselves in the unusual and unique items we offer. This gramophone kit is no exception. In fact we think this takes the cake! This gramophone can record onto many different types of materials. As seen in the picture, we are using an old used CD. Doesn't matter if the CD has any information or files on it or not. Our gramophone will record right over the top of it! It actually etches and records sound right into the surface of what ever suitable material you place on it. Now you do have a use for those AOL CDs!
Not just CDs, but any smooth, relatively firm materials can be used:
Top Ramen lids, magazine covers, glossy photos. Exchange audio messages
through the mail with another owner by recording on a postcard. VOICE MAIL
Anyone!? Experiment with different materials for different sound productions.
Note: Since this is a build it yourself kit we can not offer returns or refunds on it after it's been assembled. We will replace or refund Gramophones if there is a defect in manufacturing. Takes about an hour to assemble; no special tools required. Comes with instructions. Pay close attention for best results. This would make a great unique gift idea!
Japanese import with English instruction.
