This is out of curiocity. Wayback in 1970 - 75 in one electronic exhibition in thane i have seen a verticle record player / tt by bush
similarly in those days - most of us may be remembering - some corner irani restaurants use to keep record player called jukebox where also the records were played vertically. In normal record player / tt a tone arm is placed on record to play. What was the technic behind this verticle players anybody knows ?

A spring pressed the cartridge against the record.

The spring pressure was reasonably high, and not very well controlled... could therefore use only Very rugged ( and poor sounding ) cartridges....

Nice information. I have never seen this kind of TT.

In fact when I was searching for a TT in last 2 months, I came across Linear Turn Table which I have not come across before.
