When I were a lad I took a library record, put it on an old Garrard gramaphone and played it through my home made audio system.
I didn't cue the arm across. No, I used my own.
I took an A4 sheet of paper, rolled it at an angle, so it resenbled a sort of chips cone, then sellotaped it along the edge to give it structural integrity of sorts. I stuck a pin through the pointed end of the cone.
Pincing an edge ofthe cone lightly at the open end I let the cone follow the grpves of the record, the pin being a "stylus".
Fuck me it worked !
Sound came out , I could hear words and instruments !
Bad puss, very naughty cat indeed.
