Today I decided to make a video talking all about my record player and how to use it. It’s pretty simple, but I thought it would be interesting to see it in action! Growing up, my mom occasionally played records, but I never really knew how exactly to use a record player. She finally taught me the ropes last year.
Vinyl has definitely made a comeback in the past few years, which is surprising considering the rise of listening to music digitally. Although, I think that the rise of digital music is probably what drove the increase in vinyl sales. It’s so cliche, but listening to a record on vinyl is such a different experience than listening to it digitally, in the best way possible. That scratchy sound, the un-skippable chronological order, the flipping of the disc, watching the record spin — these are all things that contribute to the overall listening experience. Collecting records and listening to all of your favorite albums on vinyl is so much fun.
But of course, you need to know how to use a record player first!
