Meet the Soundwagon, world's smallest portable vinyl record player, usually in the shape of an old Volkswagen van. This VW Bus record player runs on a 9V battery and comes with a needle on the bottom, and speaker on the top. Place a record on a flat surface like a table, put the Soundwagon on top op it, pull the antenna to turn it on, and enjoy your music!

Also known as the 'Vinyl Killer Record Runner'... I wonder why?

Be aware that these are (vintage) musical toys, and don't offer high-quality sound, so be careful with your highly collectible albums. They were originally sold in the 1970s by Tamco, and later re-introduced by the Japanese manufacturer Stokyo. Want to see some demos before you buy one? Watch these Soundwagon record player videos on YouTube.

Stylus

According an old manual from the 1970s, the stylus should be replaced afte about 50 hours of use, and you can use any stylus designed for a mono ceramic cartridge.
