Jack White's Third Man Record Booth, in collaboration with Third Man Records, brings every amateur musician's ultimate dream to life by letting them record singles directly onto vinyl records.

The Third Man Record Booth is a restored 1947 Voice-O-Graph machine that can record up to two minutes of audio. Fans can bring their guitar, ukele, banjo or whatever strikes their fancy, and play into the record booth's vintage microphone. Once finished, the booth dispensed a six-inch vinyl record, giving music fans a keepsake of their time in an old-fashioned recording studio.

The record boot currently resides in the Novelty Lounge at Third Man Records, and has attracted celebrity musicians from all over the world. Its founder, Jack White, has recorded and released 'Coal Miner's Daughter,' recorded by the Third Man Record Booth, as a way to attract more music fans to its Nashville home. Even Neil Young has recorded a song in this impressive booth, cementing it in the hearts music fans everywhere.

Once more fans try out this creative invention, perhaps they'll be able to answer this age old question: Does everything really sound better on vinyl?
