The New Edison-Style Cup Phonograph Kit from the Maker Shed uses the same principles Thomas Edison used to make his original recordings. The Gakken version replaces Edison’s waxed pipe and stylus with a plastic cup and a needle, but the end results are the same. MAKE is proud to be the exclusive distributor in North America for these brilliant kits, part of Gakken’s Sophisticated Science Kit for Adults series.
