No, it's a FUNograph [Feb. 8th, 2009|02:04 am]
Karlos the Jackal
So a while ago I bought this kit which is a small version of a phonograph.  You put a CD on the turntable, start the motor, and shout into the horn and the needle carves a spiral scratch in the CD (don't use a good CD for this) and then you can listen back to it!

I put it together and it's pretty neat but much quieter than I anticipated and not really useful for what I was hoping to use it for (I was imagining something more like TMBG's I Can Hear You, which was wildly optimistic of me).

So now it's taking up room which I need for other things.  Do you want it?  Let me know and it is yours for free (or free + shipping if you want me to mail it to you).

(I also have an old Stylophone on which the tuning is really out of whack.  Maybe if you know anything about electronics or just want to make spacey noises you could find a use for it.)

Sure! We'll take the Gakken recorder whatsit if no one else wants them. Let me know how much you want for shipping.

I've been sick this week but next week I'll take it to the Post Office and get you a shipping price.

Karl, the email throwrug@mail.com doesn't work in Paypal. Do you mean throwrug@gmail.com?

Sorry about that. I figured it out. I think I sent the money ok. Let me know if it did't get there.

Thanks very much!
