Early 1960s Dansette Conquest Auto, green and cream vintage record player

An excellent fully functional Dansette record player made in England in the early 1960s with a BSR deck.

 

***Shipping is not included, it is by collection or courier. Please read details at the bottom of this section***

 

A fantastic green ‘Conquest’ model with cream sides and brass latches and gold tone front knobs and speaker grille.

 

The iconic mid century style of the Dansette played a huge part of great British audio and social history during the 1950s and 60s, and these players were the quintessential way of listening to some of the greats of the era of swathes of switched on youth.

 

This is one of the finest Dansette models. This Conquest has a great amplifier, powerful and full sounding with a richness not usually heard in all in one players.

 

*** Full professional restoration and service ***Unlike the vast majority of vintage record players you will find on Etsy or eBay, this has already been fully professionally restored and serviced.

 

Completely mechanically and electrically restored and serviced, this Dansette Conquest has been brought back to its former glory with work which includes the following:

 

– Cleaned volume and tone pots

– Full mechanical service to BSR deck. The autochanger now works perfectly

– New cartridge installed

– New stylus installed

– flip type for LPs, singles and 78 rpm gramophone records

– Stylus tracking weight correctly set

– Long list of other resoldering, lubrication and cleaning, mechanical service.

 

Aside from its great style and vintage sound, this player has fantastic features.

 

By placing the overarm over the 12″ or 7″ record and sliding the lever over to Auto, the turntable starts rotating, the record drops and the tonearm settings across and gently drops at the beginning of the record. At the end of the record the tonearm will return to its cradle.

 

The deck is fully automatic, so you lay a record on the spindle and swing the holding arm across. Slide the selector across to Auto and the tone arm will move itself across to the position exactly above the start of the record and gently lower itself down onto the record to play. At the end of the record the arm will swing back to its cradle and the turntable will stop rotating.

 

Make sure you unclip the arm from its transportation clip first! Likewise, two screws atop the deck should be up for transport to lock the deck, and down for use which lifts the sprung deck for play.

 

You can even stack several records on top of one another and they will play one after another, Juke box style! See video at link below for a demo.

 

The record player can be played with the lid closed for tidyness and it’s handy to avoid drink spillages at parties!

 

The player is a mid green colour with cream lid. There was some historic woodworm in parts of the outer case which have been filled and painted over.

 

This machine has been well used and loved over the years and while it has been cleaned and touched up, you will see plenty of signs of knocks and scrapes it’s got into in its youth… please see photos.

 

This great stylish, vintage all in one record player with its built in speaker arrives in great condition ready to play your favourite records.

This record player measures 42cm wide X 50cm front to back and 24.5cm tall.

***Due to the fragility of the record player, and having had trouble with damage posting them in the past, this will be sent by courier from Cardiff. You may also of course collect it or arrange a courier yourself. Shipping by courier arranged by us is to be paid by the buyer directly to the courier on delivery. A price will be arranged by us in advance with a courier we have used many times and agreed with the buyer before confirmation. This cost will be very reasonable as the regular courier gets a lot of work from us. Buyer’s contact details will be passed to the courier with their permission in order to arrange a suitable delivery day and time.***

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.

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!
