MY WORKSHOP IS 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.

DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID RESTRICTIONS, I AM AFRAID THAT I CAN NO LONGER WELCOME VISITORS TO MY WORKSHOP HERE IN CORNWALL. I AM HAPPY TO COMMUNICATE BY EMAIL AND CAN STILL SUPPLY NEEDLES AND SPARES BY POST.

SERVICES

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 HAVE JUST RECEIVED A BATCH OF NEWLY MADE REPLACEMENT BACK-PLATES FOR HMV No.5A AND 5B SOUND-BOXES. THESE ARE REALLY WELL MADE AND RESCUE AND ACTUALLY  ENHANCE DAMAGED HMV SOUND-BOXES.  DAMAGE TO THESE BOXES IS DUE TO THE POT-METAL USED IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION.

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 I HAVE MY WORKSHOP AY WEST PENTIRE ON THE NORTH CORNWALL COAST.
