Phonograph Building

My intent with this project was to understand what it felt like to engineer the tinfoil phonograph.

I constructed the phonograph from plumbing supplies.  It worked  only for a brief period of time (early phonography is inherently destructive to recordings), but it was truly an amazing experience to hear a ghostly little voice come out of the diaphragm.
