Welcome!            


Sunday May 16th sees the 2016 National Vintage Communications Fair at Leamington Showground hosted by the British Vintage Wireless Society. Find all the details under 'NVCF' on Google. I shall be there on stalls E10 and 11, so please come along and say hello!

'Au revoir',then to Mr.Francis Lavoie, a man who claims to be known by all but whom nobody seems to know. Clearly not Lavoie de Son Maitre..!

I will continue to trade in vintage gramophones, but at reduced pressure, so you will notice a marked decline in new listings for sale as keeping up with prior requests becomes harder in itself. However, this means that I am permanently in need of stock, so if you have anything interesting to dispose of, please let me know!

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...

This week; Stand,but don't Deliver..! 

P1060402

A heavy quality oak pedestal with a relatively small top platform, suitable for 10" turntable machines. The interior has divided record compartments. It needs some cleaning, so £250 'as is' or £300 tidied. Again, free transport to Leamington Fair. Additional images here.

Designed to accept a mahogany table grand on top, this classic 'Sesame' record cabinet has a trick up its sleeve, a pneumatic opening-system. Slight scuffs, £120.


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.
