*******************************

Spring -- it happened!

Can summer be far?

Sunset,

And evening star.

The days have grown gentle.

Our hearts have grown light.

Let's wind up a phonograph,

And play records tonight!

From a recent customer: 

April 2016: Well I finally removed all those packing peanuts (Yep, you gave me a heads-up) and assembled my beautiful Victor II phonograph. The phono was delivered in perfect condition... 
It was immediately obvious that you were meticulous in reconditioning this machine! The cabinet is lovely, the spring, gears & all mechanism in the box are very clean, grease free and looks great. The horn and its mount really stand out.

Everything is exactly as you had described on your web page.

A few cranks and we were blown away by its sound. A few records later and my wife and I were dancing around the living room and imagining those that were doing the same when they first bought this phonograph back in 1906.

This is truly an heirloom piece. I was further convinced of this when my 30 year old son took a look at it and asked me to update my Will to show that I have left it to him...

Thank you very much. I would recommend your company and your work to anyone. G.B. CO

*****************************

"WE LOVE THE VICTROLA!!!  It showed up on one of the coldest November days in Minnesota.  My 2 girls danced around while I played the 78s that came with it.  Now every time we get it going my 1 year old runs up to me with her arms up to dance with papa.  Thank you so much for having such great products and customer service."  -- Daniel M.
