Orchorsol portable gramophone Sold

Post by kirtley2012 »

I’m selling off a few things so there’s less to move on our up coming house move, not doing too well on the selling front but it’s the thought that counts, Anyway, this is one thing to go.

The condition isn’t too bad, not mint, not too bad either, maybe slightly shabby in places, missing the carry handle but aside from that it seems complete.
The motor runs strong and steady, I’ve put new gaskets in the soundbox and patched a damaged section of the diaphragm, also made a new rear collar as the original pot metal one had succumbed to the inevitable.

For only £60 plus shipping you can be the proud owner of an example of the worst decal in history!
