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'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. A cabinet gramophone is just that; a gramophone in a floor-standing cabinet. I still receive two mails a day asking me if I will buy them. If you send me such an offer I may not reply as I simply don't have the time to repeat myself.

P1070458 Please don't call me a 'Dog'!

This is a NewStyle No 3, the model that followed the hallowed Style No 5, immortalised as 'The Dog Model'. This example is 99% original and sports unusually good nickel plating on its exposed metalwork as well as an undented nickel-plated 'zinc' horn. The only reproduction element is the leather elbow.

More information on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page.


 P1070339 Always time for a Concert...

This is the second incarnation of the rare Edison Concert machine, in this case from 1901.

More information on the 'Phonographs for Sale' page.

P1070448 A Junior Monarch...

Completes the front page. An honest machine but with its horn repainted, but very accurately in a carefully colour-matched shade of green.


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.
