I know of three versions of the Columbia 202, and here they are pictured from my collection.Phono48 wrote:This is the "swivelling dome" needle pot that was usually fitted to the 202 (and the 201) It has no removable inner dish like that on the 206.nostalgia wrote:Since I not yet have seen a swivelling dome pot in detail, I am myself not able to decide if this is a remaining part of this kind of needle pot.
The red one is pre-EMI with nickel plated fittings, No.9 soundbox, No.50 motor and "swivelling dome" needle container.
The brown one has chrome plated fittings, No.15 soundbox, HMV carrying handle, modified HMV No.69 motor and needle container with inner dish.
The black one is the final version with side wound HMV 270 series motor.
Still seeking a record album for the red one.
