We do not normally play scarce 78 rpm records on acoustic gramophones, but this one is not in very good condition, so it doesn't really matter! 'I'm Wondering Who' was recorded in New York in 1927 by a band which is usually known, appropriately, as the 'New Yorkers', which was under the leadership of Adrian Rollini. Several of the musicians were from Jean Goldkette's Orchestra, which had just disbanded. Rollini took his band into a night club called the 'New Yorker', but it folded after a ...
Testing a British 1919/1920 Model 2 Zonophone 'hornless' table gramophone after cleaning and oiling the motor. An old, worn record was used for the test. This video is actually a 'final touch' to a page on my web-site concerning this gramophone. The motor was dismantled, cleaned & replaced. It then occurred to me that it would be fun if people who had read the (very boring) web-page, could also, if they chose, see the machine in operation! Accordingly, a short video was made & uploaded here ...
Axel shows me his 1933 Odeaon Gramophone (aka - phonagraph in the USA). Interesting details: -no electricity, purely mechanical -a full wind up will play 2 sides. -format 78rpm shellac records. -record in the video (1931 Duke Ellington). -it's a destructive format, every time you play the record, the needles slightly destroy the shellac record. -needles come in various thickness, the heavier the thickness, the louder the sound, but also the more you destroy the shellac record. Axel had three ...

Dima Bilan in Golden gramophone awards (Tak ustroen etot myr)
From www.josepino.com - This is my home-made gramophone using just a plastic cup, a pin and some Lego Mindstorms parts. The pin picks the sound from the vinyl disk and the plastic cup amplifies the sound. A paper cup works fine, a foam cup also works but I didn't like the results. The plastic cup amplifies the high-frequency tones but not the lower-frequencies, so I did put a napkin inside the cup to reduce the higher frequencies. Using softer materials may help to get lower frequencies ...
