Split flap display module made by Pragotron. Recorded with Barcus Berry contact mic and pair of Schoeps CMC6U+MK21 into Siemens V276 mic pres and Lavry Blue converters.

The contact mic gave some nice weight to the sound.

It was quite a catch, because it's very hard to find working module to record.

    Incredible. I can't believe such a clean capture of this module. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks as well. There are now startups making new smartphone centered split flap display boards - but I think what people are really looking for in terms of their nostalgia problem is what you've put right here.

    I didn't think I'd find a recording of this device, let alone a good one.
