Record players are mechanical devices that generate sound by playing some sort of specially grooved disc, usually made out of vinyl. Record players evolved from the phonograph which used a cylinder to produce sound instead of a disc. Record players have been around since the early 1900s. Any older, classic you hear was recorded with vintage analog equipment, such as these vintage Astatic microphones. They were then cut on records for playback.
