1940s Triumph wind-up Gramophone with records and needles

An excellent Triumph collectable wind up Gramophone records player from the 1940s, with needles and selection of records.

The ‘picnic’ gramophone picks up the vibrations in the ‘sound box’ which is the round piece to which the needle is attached, which travels through the hollow arm into an internal metal box where it is amplified, rather than requiring a large exterior horn to be heard. This version is more compact and so easier to store and transport. The volume and quality of sound is plenty loud enough and of a very listenable quality.

The amazingly impressive fact about these gramophones is that they work entirely without a power source besides the manual wind up lever which is unclipped from the case and wound to power the spinning turntable.

The sound is transmitted acoustically via the needle, through the ‘soundbox’ angled, as it should be at around 60° which is connected to the tone arm.

In case you are unfamiliar with 78s, these types of record preceded vinyl. They are usually made of shellac and are much stiffer and more brittle than vinyl records. They are smaller too, and run at around 78rpm as opposed to 33 or 45 with vinyl.

A selection of Gramophone records are included in the compartment in the lid as a gift to start your collection off with and so you have something to play straight away.

The needles are made of soft steel and can be purchased cheaply online in bulk (they should ideally be changed every side of a record due to degrading sound quality). They are quickly and easily changed with a simple thumbscrew.

Several needles are included, both in the pot built in to the front right of the deck and there are also many more brand new needles in a packet of needles I have included.

The lever to the front right is a brake for the turntable for use when turning the record over or packing away.

The lever to the front left enables the listener to select the speed, 78rpm, a little slower or faster, depending on the speed of your foxtrot…

This Gramophone is a fantastic piece of music history. It is a wonderful period piece to wow your friends and family and a great way to get a party started!

Lovely vintage shop with outstanding customer service!! When I fall in love with this Victorian table I was not in the position to receive the delivery right away due to house move. Tim kindly agreed to store it for me until I was ready. Cannot recommend it enough!!! Thank you for my lovely addition to my home.

Absolutely over the moon with my purchase from Oaky Doke Vintage! I ordered a beautiful beech stool with red vinyl seat & it's just perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Delivery was very quick and packaging was extremely secure. Thank you Tim! :)

I absolutely love this site. Last year I bought a dansette record player and recently bought a vintage butterfly table. The delivery was very quick and very well packed so no chance of breakages. Both items were exactly as described and as in the pictures. If you want anything vintage or a bit different this is the place to shop and every item comes with a personal note.I will be using this site for many years to come. Thank you Tim for giving me so much pleasure with my purchases. X

Lovely vintage biscuit barrel in great condition. Solid, clean, and handy for storing the little bits and pieces that usually clutter up my bedside table. A bargain at the price, and delivery was super quick.

Found a wonderful cabinet via Etsy and was signposted to the Oaky Doke Vintage Home website for the best price! Very impressed with the excellent customer service, attention to detail and care shown by Tim, who helped arrange a courier with a very reasonable price for me, coming all of the way to Scotland! Communication throughout excellent. Delighted with the quality of the cabinet, it's unusual aesthetic and multi-function use. Just perfect for helping solve the storage issues in our wee flat! A very happy customer and would highly recommend Tim's vintage business. I'll certainly be browsing the website in future for future finds. Thanks so much Tim!

I am so pleased with my purchase of this stunning antique. I am all the way in Los Angeles and this is my 3rd purchase and I am so pleased with everything I bought. The postage was amazing and I can tell that Tim has great pride in his merchandise and his loyal customers. I will be coming back as much as I can. Thank you Tim for having an amazing store. I still think England has the best antiques. I highly recommend this store!🥰

Great experience ordering from Tim and his business! I ordered a beautiful vintage record player - everything was as described on the website and Tim wrote up some very helpful instructions and advice for using the player too. Communication was fast and detailed, and Tim arranged for my player to be delivered by a trusted courier. Would recommend and use this company again. Thanks again Tim

Fantastic! The phone we purchased circa 1930s is the perfect addition to our recent home purchase that was built in the 30s! The home came with a place where phones like these would have been and it looks great! Tim, thanks for a wonderful purchasing experience and I’m sure I will be back to find my next vintage item!
