Looks like a 78- there will be EQ, but not RIAA.

Watch it from 1.31 minutes on, definitely not a 78 - roughly 5 spins in about 10 seconds - its a 33. True he's playing it with a big old 78 needle mind.

Ok, I didn't count- I was going from the proportions and the colour of the label (!).

I played a crap copy of tubular bells with a stanley knife once. Put a penci throught the hole in the handle, record on TT, new knife blade in groove. Crap sound, butit worked. Once. I threw that LP away after that.

One of the nicest sounding record players I ever listened to was a wind up 78 player with the right needle and a horn playing a recording of Caruso. It was like having a little foot high singer standing on the table. No electronics involved at all!

Some of the most natural sounds are from these acoustic players - the best ones used a thorn as a needle!!
