Gray Audograph record, flexible blue
grooved records with a star hub.
Gray Audograph disks are blue flexible grooved disks with a star center hub. They play with a constant speed under the needle that is achieved by rotating the disks with a variable speed of approx. 33 rpm to 15 rpm starting from the ceter and playing outward towards the edge. The needle is fixed and the record platter rotates and slides with an intricate mechanical design. The groove spacing is approx. 0.005 inches, 0.125mm. The Gray Manufacturing company of Hartford Conn. manufactured these starting in the 1950s. Disks can be "resurfaced" to remove the groves so they can be reused several times. Soundwriter machines will record and playback 20, 30, and 60 minute disks. Other names associated with this format are Gray Flexograph, Gray Transcriptions, and Gray Audograph-Phonaudograph.

The Gray disks, mp3 files on flash drive, and CD arrived today and everything is great!
