Things were rough at first. I knew jack about how to manipulate records. The Eurolite went for months carrying nothing more than a pair of cheap headphones and a couple of drum and bass records. But we learned together. Slowly, records found there way into its depths. I learned more and more. The cheap headphones were replaced by much better Sony cans. Eventually, there was no more room for peripheral items. Stickers began to adorn the Eurolite. It became something of a work of art, emphasis on "work," as it never fell out of service.
Lots of equipment came and went. Things broke. Things died. The one constant through everything was the little record case that could. I came to rely on it almost more than any piece of gear I owned.
But all good things must come to end. The Eurolite met its maker in Gaylord, Michigan on the 20th of June, 2008. The mechanism that kept it closed disappeared into the aether, rendering the humble case utterly useless. It was a sad, sad day.
Let us now take a moment to remember one of the most amazing pieces of gear I have ever owned.
My Eurolite record case
2001 - 2008
You are lost, but never forgotten. My brand new lime green Eurolite case will forever stand in your shadow.
