As a private Collector here in England I will try and answer your Gramophone queries.
Website last updated 16 January 2021
I started collecting Gramophones (especially HMV), Phonographs and related items back in 1989.
GRAMOPHONES - HELP & INFORMATION
Common questions I am asked:- Buying a Gramophone? - How do I test it before Purchase?
I have seen this Horn model - Is it a reproduction?.
Can you identify it?. When was it made?. What's it worth?. It has a problem, can it be fixed?.
Where can I obtain Needles?.
How do I operate it?. How do I Repair or Service it?
And so many more!
Further down this Web-page are details of models sold from my Collection where you can see what a Genuine HMV looks like!
