    Default Old record players

    Christmas 1969 I had my first record player,I wanted a red one but unfortunately when I opened the box it was yellow,was dissapointed as red was the in thing.I think it was a Decca loved it though apart from the colour oh I thought wow I am growing up lol.When my dad died in 2007 after a few months clearing out the house every room was full of clutter.In the back bedroom I found that old record player guess what it went in the skip,fond memories though of playing records on it into my teens

    It was my second !!
    I bought Elvis’s ballad The Wonder of You first ..

    I actually became obsessed with TRex soon after buying every single on the day it was released ( 50p each ) and even before ever hearing them !!

    I also bought all their albums and even the Tyrannosaurus Rex albums !!

    I Have 4 Different Record Players in my house.

    the 1st one i have is my dad's record player and a tapedeck/hi fi christ remember those to.

    thats over 30yrs old and still going strong till this very day. Technics

    The Second One Is An Old Style One With the wood look i picked that up at an auction room about 5yrs ago for about a tenner , and that plays the real old records 78's up to the lps.

    And The Last Two I Own Are Made By Numark which are about 4-5 yrs old now, but unfortunately one of them don't work now ,well it sort of does but the sound goes really low and then sometimes loud then back to low again, so i haven't got a scooby whats gone wrong there.

    The earliest record player in the house I can remember was an old valve radiogram made of solid wood,and had that lovely warm smell when it was warming up.The wooden top lifted up and it had quite a heavy looking bulky arm to the record player.

    My first record player was a portable mono Philips in some sort of red material covering.Would of been quite old even when I had it.Worked very well for years.
