On July 10th I will be moving house and the business will be very disrupted for some time. I will then be operating from temporary premises for at least a month from then, so I am working my stock down in anticipation of the upheaval. So; don't expect too much of me before the end of August, although I will certainly still be trading, so please keep those offers coming!
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.
Despite my imminent move, I am in need of as many
good Edison 'Standards' as I can buy, so if you have
one for sale. please let me know!
I am often askd for genuine First War period Decca
reflector portables. This example fits the bill but has
one or two shortcomings which you can read about
on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page.
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.
Two books may be of interest to visitors to this site; An authorised and very thorough biography of The two George Formbys, father and son, and the ultimate guide to musical boxes published for the Musical Box Society. Read more here.
