I'm still getting organised but things are steadily coming together. Just a couple of things added now with more to 'post' in the next couple of weeks.
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.
With the Armistice coming up in the next few days,
here is a chance to see an example of the 'Celeste'
trench gramophone, the original machine bearing
that title. More on the 'Gramophones for Sale' page.
A survivor of the trenches might well have aspired to
own an early 1930's EMG Mark X like this one. Eighty
years on, you can too! More on Gramophones for Sale...
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.
