    78rpm wind up


    So this is a sound I haven't found here, but I'd love to have it, if anyone has the means to record it:

    What I need is a 78rpm disk being placed on the gramophone, the gramophone winded up, and the needle being placed on the disk for playback. Also if some noise could be recorded, as well as the needle lifted after playback is finished, then I'd be most happy. It's for a contest I'll take part in later next year.

    Best regards Johan Brodd

    If I get some time this evening (final tonight) I will see what I can do. I have an old suitcase gramophone from the lat 20's or early 30's. It sounds horid by the way! Stere or mono? I have some new mics to try and this would be a fun thing to do with them.

    Just read your comments, glad they will work out for you! The length of the first one is actually shorter than normal, it was already half wound! These things will tire your arm out quick if you want to listen to a couple of records.
