"Mechanical 78-RPM Record Player" - (110119-2110)

This old record player is completely mechanical - you wind up a spring that powers the turntable rotation, and the vibrations of the needle (in this case bamboo!) are amplified through a horn without the aid of any electronics at all. For a video demonstration of this machine, see this video clip:
