A dog is not just for Christmas...

...and neither is a 'Dog Kennel' Nirona, one of the querkiest 
mini-portables ever conceived. This one plays fine and only 
has minimal faults. Go to the 'Gramophones for Sale' page 
for more information and additional images of this baby.

I always need more stock to keep up with demand, so keep those offers coming, except please don't offer me any cabinet gramophones unless they are either made by HMV or housed in novelty (like a piano-shaped machine) as I no longer have a market for them. I am sorry, but I may not reply to enquiries about such machines as I just don't have the time at present to turn them down individually.

If you like your music source a little more dignified
you might prefer to consider this Palladium, a large 
Swiss machine from just before WW1. More on the
'Gramophones for Sale' page.

If you are looking to buy or sell a genuine gramophone or phonograph then you have come to the right place!  I have been collecting them since 1972 and trading for only a little less time; forty years of knowledge and experience. Over this period I have handled just about everything that the subject covers from humble portables to 'tinfoil' Edisons from the beginning of recorded sound history.


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.
