This is a good honest little gramophone, this one would make a good project machine, good first machine for new collector or good for using and not being concerned about dinging it about

Comes working and with the original Columbia soundbox.
Mechanically it is functioning fine, the case covering is a bit tatty in places, the leather cover for the carrying handle and the tip of the winding handle are missing, and the autostop is a bit temperamental, like the turntable is sitting too low, I think the motor just needs raised up a bit

I'll post it to the UK (or elsewhere but I don't know what it would cost), or it can be collected from Alston, Cumbria

For anyone interested on here I'll do it £45 + postage

Good honest low price Alex, a real bargain for someone. These are excellent performers and can give HMV102s a serious run for their money.

Yeah it's one of those machines that is what it is, nothing fancy but a good performer, this one sounds pretty good, certainly better than an average 101
