Welcome!            


A few new horned gramophones are offered on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page...


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.


Pre-1912 German The Holly...

Available now at £475, this pre-1912 German gramophone is mecanically very similar to The Dulcephone in the image below although it lacks the name cast into the back-bracket. With its (repainted) red horn  it can represent the holly side of Christmastime whereas the machine below with its original-paint green horn can represent...


Pre-1912 Dulcephone ...the Ivy!

The red-horned machine is available on the 'Gramophones for Sale page. The green horned machine is now sold.


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.
