LEGO Record Player: Brickophone

by Lambert Varias

We’ve featured a record player made out of LEGO before, but that one was barely functional and resulted in a warped sound. This one made by Brickinside member Hayarobi is much better, because it can play at 33 1/3 rpm and 45 rpm.

It’s made out of 2,405 LEGO pieces and uses the Power Functions 8878 battery and the Power Functions 8883 M-Motor. It does have at least one non-LEGO piece, an Audio-Technica 1Ea cartridge.

Here’s it is playing in 33 1/3rpm mode:

And here is it’s 45rpm mode:

Not bad! Hayarobi also made a matching tube amplifier replica and vintage cases for his speakers. Here’s his retro sound system at the 2014 Brick Pop Art Exhibition in Seoul, as photographed by Flickr user LoctiteGirl:
