You may have seen the build video about the modular turntable a few months ago. In recent times I seem to keep finding discarded, or broken turtables. Me being me, I have to take them in, but they really are bulky items and I don’t need 23 turntables in my house. I’ve taken to harvesting parts from them, but often find that keeping the tone arm is simple task, and has lots of potential. The photo below is a tone arm found on a turntable left in the street, I removed it and kept the phono connections, before mounting it in an old coffee tin that I spray painted black. I opted for the tin to provide the height needed to sit over the turntable.
So, I’ve made a couple of these “Stilt Scraches” and wanted to use them with the Modular Turntable to see what results could be achieved by blending the two world’s together.
Below are two recordings made on (20/2/21 and 21/2/21 respectivly) and these really trial what can be possible with this approach.
