RSD3 Mini Turntable Record Store Day

For the past several years, Crosley has created special limited edition turntables for Record Store Day, but this year they're releasing something they haven't done before and it might just be the tiniest, cutest turntable you've ever seen.

Behold the RSD3 Mini Turntable! Designed to play 3" records, the RSD3 Mini Turntable might be small, but it's mighty. It's a belt-drive turntable with an AT3600 moving-magnet cartridge, adjustable pitch control, fully supported platter, and aux out port with RCA adapter. It even has a built-in speaker, but you can connect it to your regular, full-size speakers using the RCA cable adapter that comes with it. Did we mention it also has a perfectly tiny dust cover to protect the turntable when it's not being used?

Three-inch records were briefly available in Japan during the early 2000s, just before the worldwide vinyl resurgence began. Fourteen years later, a team of people from Record Store Day traveled to Japan and visited the only factory that used to make these “8ban” records. After a year of development and collaboration, the RSD3 Mini Turntable by Crosley was born.

Of course, you need something to PLAY on a mini turntable. The limited edition RSD3 Mini Turntable comes with a Foo-Fighters "Big Me" 3” vinyl record, sealed inside the box. Additionally, Third Man Records and Epitaph Records have created blind box sets containing four individual 3" vinyl singles. Record Store Day has also announced plans to release more 3" records in the coming months, so you will have even more selection in the future.

The limited edition RSD3 Mini Turntable and the Third Man and Epitaph 3" vinyl blind box sets will be available for sale at all Amoeba stores on Saturday, April 13 for Record Store Day (while supplies last). Please note: the RSD3 Mini Turntable is excluded from the turntable sale on 4/13.

[As with all Record Store Day releases, the mini turntable and the 3" vinyl records will be available on a first come, first served basis in-store only on 4/13. No holds or phone orders. Limit one turntable and vinyl blind box per customer.]
