The image is a photomanipulation of the original cup and needle record player I balanced with a hair pin and rubber bands and put on a small hanger for use. It works great! I still have it. I love vinyl. I want to collect more of them. Most of the collection of my dad's is gone now. I still have the 45s and my grandfather's allegro royales but they are packed away till I get into an apartment. I love new music on vinyl too!
