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 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 have added some cylinder machines on Friday, July 8th and will be changing the 'Gramophones' page soon after.

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.

This beautiful Columbia BC (Loudspeaking Graphophone) was restored by the late Mike Field and has wonderful finishes. The £2,000 pricetag includes a monster five foot brass horn and original floor stand. Unusually, the horn has the correct large diameter ferrule needed to cope with the BC's oversize reproducer tube. It's unbelievably heavy, and I am reluctant to ship it unless I employ a professional packer, as crating will be required.

If you thought the machine was big...take a look at the horn alongside it! More details of this and other cylinder machines on the 'Phonographs for Sale page.


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.
