Columbia Table Gramophone

Columbia Table Gramophone

Categories: Gramophone

Here is a good example of a Columbia table gramophone from the mid 1920s. This is model 117A in an oak case.

Columbia gramophones were the main competitors to those made by HMV and they are almost always really well made, especially the sound-boxes that are not subject to the pot-metal decay of many of the others. This example plays very well and some volume control can be applied by adjusting the louvered front by means of a knob on the right hand side. There is also an auto-brake.

I rarely put table gramophones on my website, as customers usually prefer smaller portables that can be tucked away when not in use. models like this one need a table to stand on and take up some space, but if you have room , they look good and play well.

Price £180
Wooden gramophones do not travel well by couriers so this one is best collected in person from TR8 5SE
