White Stripes Triple Inchophone with 7 3" records from the 2005 tour. This one was purchased at the Brooklyn show at Coney Island in 2005. Ticket stub from the show can be included if desired. It was used a few times as a party trick, and the only record ever taken out and played was Seven Nation Army. All others are unopened in mint condition. The below info is the history of the Triple Inchophone:



While the White Stripes originally intended to make/purchase 1000 Triple Inchophones record players, they were soon told that any remaining stock had been destroyed, as warehouse space in Japan is at a premium.
Luckily, 400 units of Inchophones did turn up somewhere and the Jack & Meg took hold of them to couple with the sets of 3" records they'd already begun the process of manufacturing. Those 400 players caused a wild uproar via cable news networks and the whole music world!
Jack remastered and remixed six of the White Stripes previous releases into a 3-inch format for release with the Triple Inchophone. These included Hotel Yorba, Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground, Fell in Love with a Girl, Seven Nation Army, The Hardest Button to Button (with an alternative sleeve), and Blue Orchid (also with an alternative sleeve). Also produced was a previously unreleased track, "Top Special", only ever released in the 3-inch format.
