The Raddest Record Players I Have Ever Seen March 29, 2010

Today we went into a sweet antique shop called Shinai Denki just off Kokusai Dori, the main shopping district. They had all kinds of awesome odds and ends, and they gave us some sushi. But the best stuff was all the turntables:

A crank-operated 78 player. He threw on a French version of “Beyond the Sea.”
EDIT: He threw on the old French song that “Beyond the Sea” is based on. Thanks, Allan.

Hella cute rocketship portable player.

The tiniest turntable ever, complete with a box of 3-inch ’50s and ’60s singles.
Instead of selecting 33 or 45 on it, you turn a knob from “slow” to “fast.”

I’m not sure I had ever seen a jukebox quite like this before.
Too bad you can’t see the ’50s song titles written in Japanese.

I didn’t. It’s about $70 – if you want it I’ll go back!
