Phonographs for Sale

Although we are primarily record dealers, we usually have a few nice hand wound phonographs for sale. Most phonographs are restored to good playing condition using original parts whenever possible. The cabinets are cleaned and touched up, but usually not refinished. We currently have the following available:

Edison Suitcase Home
Starr Mission Oak Upright
Columbia AU
The Bargain Basement - Project and Parts Machines

These phonographs are available for inspection by appointment only. We may also have other instruments that are displayed at our Retail Location and at our Spring and Fall antique shows. Visit the What's New page for dates and locations of our upcoming shows. Special consignment items are occasionally listed that are in the owner's home.

Edison Suitcase Home




Here is an early Suitcase Home. The mechanism is complete and runs well. The reproducer has been rebuilt and plays nicely. All paint on the bedplate and plating on the interior parts is original and still in good shape. The finish is faded on the outside cabinet and the decal is partially gone. This machine is equipped with a nice all brass horn measuring 24" long and with a 10" bell. The horn is supported by an excellent reproduction table stand. With the exception of the stand and the horn connector, all parts are original. This is a nice example of an early Edison machine.

The price is $995.00. The phonograph is located in Roseville CA. Pickup is preferred, as the phonograph is heavy and shipping would be costly. However, if shipping is requested, buyer arranges and pays for all crating and shipping costs. California buyers must pay 7.5% sales tax or provide a valid resale number. Please contact us for further information or to make an appointment to see and hear this wonderful phonograph.

Starr Upright in a Quarter Sawn Oak Arts and Craft Style Cabinet



The Starr phonograph was made by the Gennett company and was considered a high quality instrument. This example is housed in a beautiful quarter sawn oak Arts and Crafts style cabinet. It has the ability to play both lateral and vertical cut 78s, and features a spruce horn with an effective volume control. The motor has been cleaned and adjusted and runs nicely. All internal nickle plated parts are still bright and shiny, and the finish on the cabinet is in excellent condition. This piece would be striking when placed in a home decorated with early 20th century furniture.

The price is $395.00. The phonograph is located in Roseville CA. Pickup is preferred, as the phonograph is heavy and shipping would be costly. However, if shipping is requested, buyer arranges and pays for all crating and shipping costs. California buyers must pay 7.5% sales tax or provide a valid resale number. Please contact us for further information or to make an appointment to see and hear this wonderful phonograph.

Columbia AU




Here is a nice Columbia AU in very good condition. It is one of the few disc phonograph that has an open works motor. This example is in excellent original condition. The horn has the original paint and has very few scratches or marks. The motor has been rebuilt, and the troublesome fiber govenor gear has been replaced. The reproducer has also been rebuilt, so the phonograph plays very well. All paint on the body and base is original and in good shape. The only reproduction part is the crank.

The price is $795.00. The phonograph is located in Roseville CA. Pickup is preferred, however, if shipping is requested, buyer arranges and pays for all crating and shipping costs. California buyers must pay 7.5% sales tax or provide a valid resale number. Please contact us for further information or to make an appointment to see and hear this wonderful phonograph.
