First for the Bad News;


Along with the disappearance of Santa, Christmas has just about cleared me out of ready-to-go stock to sell.
The good news is that I have a good number of machines expected in the New Year which I should be posting early in January

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 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.


Now spoken for, this handsome Edison 'Triumph' lasted 
a very short time on these pages. Will I be putting up my 
prices? No... You'll just have to be quicker off the mark!


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.
