Hello,

I recently purchased a 1928/9 Fullotone with a broken tone arm and I'm looking to replace it. The arm is broken at the base where it meets the cabinet and doesn't look to be repairable. I have attached a few photos of the broken item for reference as well as a photo of the cabinet itself. I would greatly appreciate any information about where to locate one or just any general information about these Fullotone phonographs. Thank you in advance.

Fullotone was the brand name of The Cabinet Gramophone Company of Camden, London, founded in 1918/19 by Charles McDougal. In 1929 it was re-formed as Fullotone Gramophones (1929) Limited, and after WW2 Albert McDougal (son?) became a television dealer trading as Puratone.

Fullotone machines used bought in components which they assembled into cabinets of their own manufacture, so your tonearm would have come from one of their trade suppliers and was probably fitted to other more than one make of gramophone. UK eBay might be your best chance of finding a replacement.

Fullotone claimed to be London's largest gramophone mail order business, and the picture shows their London premises in about 1927.
