DIY: Make Your Own Vinyl Records at Home!
Vinyl has been on the rise the past few years, as people rebel against the digital format. If you have a record player, you are
a hipster going to like this new product. Introducing the VinylRecorder T560, which lets you make your own record grooves, as well as create coloured or illustrated vinyl covers (via Digital Music News).
Apparently it’s been on the market for awhile, and while it looks like some contraption from an OK Go video, it’s much more (well, actually much less) than that. The VinylRecorder is from Stuttgart firm Fritz and Ulrich Sourisseau. The VinylRecorder lets you set up different RPMs (33, 45, and 78), as well as different sizes (5″, 7″, 10″, and 12″).
It’s a pricey investment – about $4200 – in addition to the difficulties trying to figure out the components at http://www.vinylrecorder.com/. But it increases your cool value one hundred fold (or it is “lessens” it). Check out a video and decide if it’s right for you.
