This is a nice example of the EMG “Handmade” gramophone Mark IX. Produced at No.11 Grape Street, London towards the end of WW2.

The gramophone has a Garrard electric motor, professionally fitted and a viewing lamp in the lid. The sound-box is a two spring original.

It is the oversized horn that is such a feature of EMG machines and this one, made from papier mache, has the classic snake skin textured finish, albeit with a slight droop, something these horns are prone to! The original EMG two-spring sound-box and horn together produce a really excellent sound quality reproduction.
