More on Record Store Day
While each Record Store Day brings us an array of exclusive releases to choose from, last year’s event also presented an exclusive way to play them. Crosley Radio released another trendsetting record player at just three inches. The special edition record player can all be yours for just $70.
According to Digital Trends, the record player can only spin vinyl that holds about four minutes of music at a time. (That’s a lot of flipping if you ask us.) Perfect for single tracks and only single tracks, Epitaph and Jack White’s record label, Third Man will be pressing special one-track discs specifically for the launch.
Despite it all, the special edition Crosley seems to have everything a tiny record player needs to function. You can either power it through USB or by popping a few batteries in. It comes complete with an Audio-Technica cartridge, a headphone jack, a built-in speaker, a pitch controller and a dust cover.
The special edition turntable was available at select record stores on Record Store Day 2019. If you grabbed one for yourself, RSD currently has a selection of 3-inch releases that include Disney, Hopeless Records and more here.
