Bangalore/Delhi based product designer Arjun Agarwal took this project on because of his love for turntables.
He picked up a raggedy HMV Fiesta for Rs. 2000/- and his project was underway.
'Not much design and thought went into this project, I just found a great looking piece of wood, buffed it to be buttery smooth, and fit all of the old HMV parts onto and under that. I added a couple of features which the old one didn’t have; for example a on off switch and some lights. I also had to cut and add some MDF pulleys as some of the old ones were heavily damaged.
Turned out great in the end and I think I got the aesthetic to much better match the sound. Plus, excluding the cost of the turntable, everything else cost me under INR 300 to put together.'
