I  specialize in vintage gramophones and phonographs. Whether you would like  to purchase or sell  a gramophone or have your machine serviced, I would be happy to help . I can no longer undertake extensive restoration of larger machines. I supply records, cylinders and accessories for your vintage device.

My workshop is beside my home and you are more than welcome to come and visit me in West Pentire. It is recommended to contact me in advance to arrange a  visit.


I am able to undertake repairs to a number of different gramophone sound-boxes. I  have unused old stocks of mica and aluminium diaphragms and  I have a number of re-conditioned replacement sound-boxes with prices from £25.

I am  hoping that the newly designed replacement back-plates for HMV No.5 and No.4 sound-boxes will soon be available again.

I can also supply new gramophone needles of various types including some fibre (thorn and bamboo) needles. For details of these and how to order needles, please click here. I also have a number of unused old stock  gramophone mainsprings. Details on request.

Important: Vintage Gramophones play 78 rpm records only and cannot play “vinyl”.

This is where we live in West Pentire. Our cottage is left of the path as it heads towards the cliff edge.
