it is SO MUCH BIGGER than I thought it was from the thumbnail!

LB: for those in Europe, this is 4,5 kg (about twice the weight of your average laptop), so quite a bit to haul about - I dread to think what the tracking weight of the tonearm/stylus may be, especially if its capable of playing upside down..

@DialMforMara And of course it's in a weird part of California, near the Salton Sea

@QueenMollyBones Bananas were cool in the 70s! ( There's a theory going around that this record player was inspired by Andy Warhol)

@erinbee Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring ... Banana Gramophone ...
