Crankin' It Up: There's A New Victrola On The Block!

I'll have to shoot a new introduction, won't I?

A very nice machine! Are the needles readily available? Will one play actually cause enough wear on the needle that it could deform the groove if used to replay?

The needles are easy to find online. I get mine from a shop in New York that also rebuilds spring motor and the reproducers. If you use a needle on another record it will carve shellac from the groove all the way through the record. The needle will sound good for eight to ten plays, but they will damage your records if reused.
