Welcome!            


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 these machines 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. This month...

Eclipse

So-called 'hornless; gramophones are not much in
fashion today as collectors' items, but this Columbia
'Eclipse' must be one of the prettiest designs for such
an instrument ever conceived ...and shiny or what!
For sale on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page.

HMV Hornless 2

HMV's offerings are much more 'four-square' in design
and those doors seem to take up so much room where 
the Eclipse's louvres seem compact and sophisticated.
Still, it's an HMV, and selling on the 'Gramophones for 
Sale' page.


Little new is appearing on these pages at the moment as I am selling just about everything that I can get hold of before I need to advertise it. As a result I am always short of stock and will consider anything you might have for sale 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.


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.
