Early Decca Portable Gramophone.

Categories: Gramophone


Here is an early Decca portable gramophone from about 1918, the Model No.2.

Decca made their name during the First WW, making gramophones that could be sent to the front lines as entertainment for the troops, there are a number of advertising cartoons from the time, showing the gramophones in action. This model No.2 has been re-motored with a good Garrard 20 motor at some point and plays well with a “Crescendo” sound-box, used by Decca on several of its machines.

The gramophone comes with 100 needles and six 78s if required. The total price, including delivery is £175.00. This could be an ideal Christmas present!
