Step 1: Make the Amplifier and Needle

For this step you will need a piece of copy paper or construction paper, some tape, and a sowing pin

  • First roll the paper into a cone tape is so that it stays together
  • second you will need to stick the pin through the small end of the cone

Step 2: Add to Turn Table and Play

with your amplifier and needle complete your ready to attach it to your turn table. now if you don't have a turntable you can simply put some tape around the pointed end of a pencil and stick the record on it turning it like a top. while one person turns the record another can hold the amplifier. but in my cast i had a fisher price record player to attach my amplifier to.

Now your ready to start playing your timeless classics.
