Re: TRANSPORT NEEDED: PA to AZ

I would have to agree with Raphael on this subject. I took that advice and used USHIP to get a nice Granby back to NC from up North. I will echo his point about screening the shipper and reading reviews, also. This is important.... be careful. My "shipper" kept moving the delivery location...

Jerry, yes, I am in the market for a reproducer. If you would be so kind, shoot me a PM with price, details about condition, etc. Thanks!!! - Chris

Re: Modernola on FB Marketplace in Bedford, PA $150

That's pretty tempting.... cool piece! Right, that photo is rough, lol, is that an additional tone arm in the picture that is not original to the Modernola that you are referring to?

Re: Input on this Unknown Off Brand Welcomed

That is a great observation and now that I have visited the machines in person, again today, I am in agreement that the "Granby Console" motor board and the motor board in the "mystery cabinet" are extremely similar.... needle cup locations, volume control, even the mounting scre...

Stumbled onto an External Horn Disc Graphophone and Need Advice

During a recent quest for an off brand, the seller also mentioned he had another machine he wanted to sell. I was excited when I rounded the corner into another room and saw this! We mutually agreed on a price and I was able to bring this Disc Graphophone home. There is hope! There are some external...

Re: Input on this Unknown Off Brand Welcomed

If I'm seeing things correctly, it would be odd for your mystery machine to have a gold plated lid hinge when every other bit of plating is nickel. Is the hinge really gold plated, or a trick of lighting & photography? Also, the lid prop being mounted so far inboard is odd, along with the makes...

Re: Need advice for selling collection

I downsized to a condo for a year or so to take an attractive job offer away from home. I kept a couple machines and they fit in nicely. I found it comforting to have a few of my phonographs. You should pick out one or two that "stand out" and hold on..... just my two cents.

Re: Input on this Unknown Off Brand Welcomed

Here are some more pictures... I think that many may see my true dilemma and reason for suspicion once they see these pictures side by side. I will clearly mark the photos so the real Granbys and the "unknown" off brand are identified. My theory.... maybe I am in possession of an early unm...

Re: Input on this Unknown Off Brand Welcomed

Ufff... The lid and the crank seem Vocalion, although the unique Vocalion brake is not present... Could you add some photos of the details under the lid? I mean the speed dial, the brake, that thing protruding behind the turntable at the back, etc... The horn is wood or tinplate? Yes, later today I...

Input on this Unknown Off Brand Welcomed

Greetings - My research into the Granby Phonograph and my interest in phonograph collecting has led me down some unique paths! Last week, I purchased this off brand with no markings or labels from an estate in Virginia which I think "may" have ties to the Granby Phonograph factory. It may ...
