Welcome!            


I am back from my travels and apologise for the frozen pages you have had to suffer for the last two months!

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. If you send me such an offer I may not reply as I simply don't have the time to repeat myself.


Edison Eclipse

Very few factory-original Edison Eclipses exist today. Most have some replaced element or another, but not this one, which is 100% 'right' down to the original backboard with its artwork. Even the named cylinder has been found to match! Only the period wiring has been made 21st-century legal, (although you could always reverse this at your own risk!)


Mechanism and mirror

The case boasts a mirrored back to double the glory of the auto-repeating mechanism. More information on the Phonographs for Sale page. If you have a heart condition, you may be advised not to to look at the price, just enjoy the pictures!


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.
