Website last updated 21 May 2016

I started collecting Gramophones (especially HMV), Phonographs and related items back in 1989.

GRAMOPHONES - HELP & INFORMATION
(Also Phonographs)

Common questions I am asked:-
Can you identify my Gramophone?. When was it made?. What's it worth?. My machine has a problem, can it be fixed?.
Where can I obtain Gramophone Needles?.
How do I operate it?. How do I Service it?
I have seen this Horn Gramophone, is it a reproduction?.
And so many more!
Further down this Web-page are details of models sold from my Collection - see what a Genuine HMV Gramophone looks like!
