As a private Collector here in England I will try and answer your Gramophone queries.
Website last updated 4 June 2020
I started collecting Gramophones (especially HMV), Phonographs and related items back in 1989.
GRAMOPHONES - HELP & INFORMATION
Common questions I am asked:- 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?
I have seen this Horn model, is it a reproduction?.
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!
