Welcome!            

                                                           STOP PRESS! The CLPGS are holding a small 'Phonofair' at the Brentford Piano Museum on Saturday, April 8th. Read all about it (and The Society in general) at www.clpgs.org.uk !

If you are looking to buy or sell a vintage gramophone or phonograph then you have come to the right place! I have been specialising in them for forty years and have handled just about everything the hobby has to offer, from humble portables to 'tinfoil' phonographs from the dawn of recorded sound history... 

I'm still trading, but at reduced pressure, so you will notice a marked decline in new listings of items for sale as keeping up with prior requests becomes harder all the time. This means that I am permanently in need of stock, so if you have anything interesting to dispose of, do let me know, but PLEASE NO CABINET GRAMOPHONES unless they are made by HMV or manufactured in a novelty cabinet shape such as a grand piano or in circular or oval form. A cabinet gramophone is just that; a gramophone in a floor-standing cabinet. I still receive two mails a day asking me if I will buy them. If you send me such an offer I may not reply as I simply don't have the time to repeat myself.

TWO BIG HITTERS: For the gramophone...

1

Now sold; An early (1911) example of the double-spring HMV Style V, characterised by its very generously moulded case base. A handsome machine with a powerful two-spring motor and good original nickel plating. 

...and for the phonograph...

Triumph 1

Also gone almost immediately; A beautiful example of a two-speed Edison 'Triumph', the  largest machine in the company's standard range with its huge 'Triton' motor running almost silently for 28 minutes at a single wind.  


I have recently found a wonderful image of Edwardian Oxford that will make all collectors of mechanical items weak at the knees... View it here...


If you are becoming interested in the subject of early machines and records, you might like to join a club or society dedicated to their study. Groups exist all over the world, and links to a number of them may be found on a page here.
