Actually, I have (no longer in working order) a "record player" whose
cartridge was, for whatever reason, almost as sensitive to vertical-
cut records as lateral!
Sadly, the cat knocked it over, the tone arm came loose from its
mountings, and I don't know if something was broken or what...
but I;ve never figured out how to reassemble it into working
(some days you lose, some days you don't win, and some days they
steal the dommed ball before the game starts...)
