making a sort of mock emg

[imgImage]http://oldgramophonerecords.co.uk/emg/2 ... 172728.jpg[/img]A mate of mine made this machine up from a public adress system horn, a garrard turntable and other bits he had hanging about. It has an electric moter. I'm still testing the sound, I'm well impressed so far! no lid so a fair bit of needle noise (any way to quieten that down?) but it does give it a bright, ritch sound, I'll make some recordings as best I can soon so watch this space if you like diy stuff like this. I'm using a meltrope (iii) soundbox on it or an hmv no 4 if I want a larger fibre needle.

What a superbe effort - with everything you need - a large horn , a long tonearm and a meltrope soundbox ! wonderful and i bet it sounds great as well - a lid would help with the surface noise especially one lined with thick felt
