Hope they are releasing all the White Stripes records again, because I sold mine..ha

Edit after posting below: Looks like I changed my mind real fast...I've got Raconteurs concerts to pay for. :lol:

Oh boy.
I heard a sample of “Love Interruption” and it sounds ridiculous.
No thank you.

As cool as these look and I somewhat want them, I think back to the last set of 3" records I had and how I never used them...Don't see these being any different.

Has anyone tried to play the 3 inch records on the crosley turntabale? My experience from trying two different records were that they both skipped alot and about half the time putting the needle down on the record would cause the platter to stop spinning. I didn't expect this to play great or sound good by any means, but this was a little below my expectations.

No issues with mine beyond the obvious fidelity issue. I actually tried taking one to my actual turntable and was able to center it and play it fairly successfully. It didn’t sound as bad but of course silly when I have 7” already...

Hmm maybe I'll try to adjust the weight on the tonearm on mine if that's possible. It has a screw that looks like it should be adjustable, but it may just be there for show.
