Transcriptors Skeleton


The Transcriptors Skeleton 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.
