Step 1: The Amazing Technology of an Old Gramophone

The only parte I had from rhe gramophone was the trumpet. I cleaned it up, and put it back in the box

Step 2: Adding the Sound System

I bent the ending of the trumpet to fit a small loudspeaker from a small external smartphone speaker (those that you get for free in conventions or computer fairs). I gutted out the electronics of the speaker and glued the whole thing with hot glue

Step 3: Covering Up the Mess

I took a piece of plywood and covered with leatherette. I left some heavy stuff over it for an hour and poked a couple of holes for the USB plug and the headphones jack

Step 4: Voila!

Does it sound good? mmmm... it depends. Nat King Cole sounds great. Draft Punk, not really.

Found it un Madrid, Spain, in El Rastro, a flea market that is set up every Sunday. I think I paid 5 euros for it...

Well that was a simple change. But it turned out great! These are the things I love to see and make myself. Take something old that no one has any use for anymore, and turn it into something amazing!

Love it!
