Vintage Gramophones and Phonographs
Welcome to John Sleep's Gramophone Workshop, on the North Cornwall coast. I
vintage gramophones and phonographs. Whether you want to buy or sell, or have your machine
properly restored, I can help. I can also supply records, cylinders,
I am prepared to undertake to repair a number of different gramophone sound-boxes and have
replacement gaskets for HMV No.4 sound-boxes in stock.
I also have unused old stocks of mica and aluminium
diaphragms. In addition I have a number of re-conditioned replacement sound-boxes with prices from £25.
NOTE that I now have newly designed replacement back-plates for HMV No.5 and No.4 sound-boxes.
I can also supply new GRAMOPHONE NEEDLES of various types INCLUDING SOME fibre thorn needles. For details of these and how to order
Click on the "Needles" button
I work from home and you are very welcome to visit me at my workshop in West Pentire.
It's best to ring first to make sure I'm there.
CAN I REMIND YOU THAT THE VINTAGE GRAMOPHONES
PLAY 78 RPM RECORDS ONLY.
GRAMOPHONES DON'T PLAY "VINYL".
I AM AFRAID THAT I CANNOT UNDERTAKE TO SEND
MACHINES OUT OF THE UK.
I CAN ARRANGE TO POST SMALLER MACHINES WITHIN THE UK BUT
LARGER GRAMOPHONES AND PHONOGRAPHS WILL HAVE TO BE
COLLECTED FROM MY WORKSHOP IN CORNWALL OR I CAN DELIVER AT A REASONABLE
DISTANCE FROM TR8 5SE..
