HMV 101 Black

This is a nice example of a classic portable gramophone from the mid 1920s. The HMV 101 was the most popular portable during the dance craze period and remains a popular amongst collectors today.
It has a simple basic design with a single spring motor, 10″ turntable and manual brake. The sound quality is very good using the reliable No.4 sound-box with the large mica diaphragm. The later No.4 boxes are sometimes subject to damage due to the use of pot-metal for the back-plates, but this example has a quality replacement back-plate.
There is a shelf to hold a few 78s in the lid, although, if over-used, can make the gramophone rather heavy to carry.
