Re: An EMG,not quite what it seemed.

What a transformation Graham! I hadn't realised the history of the base and the condition it was in before. So SO glad that has made it to your hands, it's the stuff of nightmares to think this could have very easily gone in a skip at some point :o :shock:

Re: Amberola 1A in England

One I'd definitely have jumped on if I had the room. I rarely listen to cylinders, so difficult to justify the floor space!

Hope it goes to someone who'd appreciate it

Amberola 1A in England

Not one you see often this side of the pond! Looks in lovely cosmetic condition too Ps, I believe it is a 1A but it may well be another model as these are not my area of expertise https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/cooperandtanner/catalogue-id-cooper10052/lot-20e53657-64e9-4013-81...

Re: Orchorsol portable for auction in UK.

I don't understand auction houses anymore. This is a machine I'd like to bid on, BUT: - I don't know what the starting bid is - I only have one picture to judge its condition - No comments on whether it's working - I don't know how much it'd cost me to get it shipped - I've got no come back if I buy...

Yeah! Quite surprised! In that condition I'd have thought it would be quite a struggle to get someone to buy it... I guess even a tired EMG is still an EMG

Real shame seeing the before and after photos, it definitely was salvageable before :(
