What would tutorials be without making a lesson on another musical device that we used to listen to when we were younger. Well, maybe not me because when I was around we still had CDs and MP3 players oh yeah and tape decks too. My sister is really into the 80s and because of that I wanted to make her a special tutorial on "how to draw a record player", step by step. Now granted this is not the type of record player that some of us have seen, or even used, but it's still a record player which is also known as the phonograph. The horn at the base is what the music from the record travels through in order for the sound to be heard. Later days speakers were introduced and then used. The handle on the side was a hand crank which is what powered the unit for the turntable to spin. The arm also had a needle which is what carried the sound through the horn. The record player was an ingenious invention and without its' creation we probably would have never had 8-tracks and CD's. Anyways, have fun drawing a record player folks and I will be back with more for you all.
