Say Hello To A First Of a Kind Portable Tape Turntable – Elbow

With so many developments taking place in and around the record player industry we believe we starting to enter an amazing era for music. After all, projections for the turntable market are set to skyrocket as it just keeps on growing at an almost alarming rate.

It’s definitely not exclusive to own a record player anymore with so many affordable options on the market.

If you were accustomed to listening to tapes a few decades ago, the Elbow turntable cassette player might be just what you need.

I remember clearly how I used to listen to cassettes. My friend used to be highly dedicated to his music and an avid guitar player.

He used to tape a lot of songs directly from the radio onto his cassette. If I dig deep enough I might even be able to find my old cassette player.

However, the times are changing and old things are once more being reinvented. Old movies get recreated, old fashion items become vintage and are worn again. Why not create a modern-day cassette turntable and revive the music industry altogether?

Cassettes never really achieved the same level of cult following as vinyl records did. Many have fond memories of using them, but you don’t see cassette sales reaching millions or even billions of dollars like with vinyl.

The Elbow cassette player device is not available on the market yet but is still in the concept stage. It’s such an awesome design and idea that I believe it’s going to be a huge success. If priced right, these guys will be making quite a few dollars when it’s officially launched.

It’s a super compact electronic device that you connect to your tape or cassette. It does not seem to be heavy and might even be smaller than your run of the mill 90’s cassette player and possible to take almost anywhere.

It comes with a connection for your earphones and a USB port that you can use to transfer music from your tapes onto your computer. That’s amazing! It even has a pin that allows you to attach it to your clothing to make some kind of fashion accessory out of it.

Update: According to their Facebook post, the product will not be coming to market. See the post below.
