WELCOME TO MY WORKSHOP ON THE NORTH CORNWALL COAST.
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 replacement gaskets for HMV No.4 sound-boxes in stock. I also have unused old stocks of mica and aluminium diaphragms. I have a number of re-conditioned replacement sound-boxes with prices from £25.
I am now stocking 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 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”.
I WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF CUSTOMERS WHO SEND ME PARCELS WITH ITEMS FOR REPAIR WOULD REMEMMBER TO INCLUDE THEIR NAME AND ADDRESS SO THAT I CAN RETURN THE ITEMS PROMPTLY. I n the present circumstances it might be difficult to get parcels to the post office as quickly as previously.
