The brief says 'used to demonstrate GGRP's sound capabilities'.

It's a very neat archaic gadget. Probably fun to mess around with, but I don't imagine this record sounds very good.

So, ultimately what I get out of this (according to the brief) is that GGRP's sound capabilities don't sound very good. Opps.

Hey, designaddict;) You know, what I'm thinking? It's is actually contraversy what you just said: "So, ultimately what I get out of this (according to the brief) is that GGRP's sound capabilities don't sound very good. Opps" I think oposit, they have an amazing sound quality, when you have in mind the fact, that even in this carton box it plays, so just imagine what they can do, with regular normal technik (not carton one). You know what I mean? siply thay are so good, that even this gadget works!

Nice idea except it not original. I saw this identical setup about thirty years ago and even then I was told it wasn't the original. Sorry!

All of us old people know it is not original, however everything that should be done has probably been done and at least there is a decent time gap between this and the last time it was done. expect to see this again in 2040....

This is nice. Im thinking there is a massive amount of reverb. Similar to a crackling' closet sound. Anyone tried this out?? | Aprilaire Marketing Manager | Twitter

Very intuitive, though I somehow doubt it works so well! Would be fun to use for the first few times though.

Lol sounds very interesting but does it work?! I cant see you being able to play a record with just some card, a pin and pencil! So common tell us can you really get sound out of something like this or was it simply a windup like it sounds?!
