Welcome!            


It was great to see so many familiar faces at the N.V.C.F. and to meet so many new collectors,too! 

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 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, 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.

Now: The Good...

French Junior Monarch

A French HMV Junior Monarch with a wood-grained horn not offered on the UK market. Not perfect, but good, the horn has some rubbing to the paint but is much better on the interior of the bell than the exterior. £700.  

For sale on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page with additional images to view.

...and The (Somewhat) Ugly

Poor Junior Monarch

The equivalent English machine but with a repainted horn and poor/absent nickel plating. £450 (or close). If you have restoration skills this may be one for you.

For sale on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page with additional images.
