I saw somebody do this awhile back and decided to try it for myself. Fun stuff!

Using a $100.00 bill is kind of expensive for a needle. Will a $1.00 bill work just as good? :lol: :lol: i never thought of that.

I've got both kinds of music--classical & rag-time.

Looking at the cost of collecting, I can inform you that I do this every day.

That is far from being the worst reproduction of a 78 I have ever heard! It could easily be a respectable table gramophone playing with a soft-tone needle and the doors shut.

The writer Patrick O'Brian, in his 1952 novel Testimonies, describes what must be the ultimate in audio-mechanical economy: playing a record with one's fingernail. Unfortunately I cannot put this to the test, since I could not bear to let my nails grow long enough.
