Second, I worry that the 78s that I have in near mint condition will
be worn out on the Victrola. I demo them on the portable electric tube
player, which also lets them hear the difference between a radio-like
setup over an acoustic one. Maybe one play on the Victrola wouldn't
hurt? Otherwise, I play major label pop music on the hand-cranker.
One play on the Victrola could do significant damage. Perhaps using a
thorn rather than a steel needle would help.
Only if you have a means for getting the resin out of the groove!
There are plastic needles available that offer similar sound, less
damage and no debris.
