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.

Awesome! Where did you find that neat old gramophone?

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!
