Rare Vintage Turntable
The Transcriptors Skeleton 2-Speed Universal Turntable was produced between 1973 and 1977.
The unit employs a low speed synchronous motor on a sprung-suspension motor board.
The Skeleton's platter is driven by a rubber belt providing the best insulation against vibration and rumble.
In order to eliminate any mechanical or electrical shock to the equipment, the on-off switching is accomplished by means of a magnetically actuate reed switch which assures long, trouble-free life.
The Designer was David Gammon manufactured by TRANSCRIPTORS (IRL) Ltd, Carlow Industrial Estate, Ireland.
