Music Thing releases Fisher Price Sample Pack
Tom Whitwell of Music Thing has released free samples of a Fisher Price Music Box Record Player.
A pleasant evening at Music Thing towers, spent fixing up and sampling this ancient Fisher Price record player from my parent’s attic. The Swiss-made music box mechanism was rusted solid and the tiny clockwork motor doesn’t really give enough juice to push the records round at the right speed, but a generous application of 3-in-1 got the music box part working well enough to sample a few notes.
You can find the random notes, motor noise and winding sounds of this Fisher Price Sample Pack at Freesound.
