Victor II


This instrument is equipped with an especially large and eye-catching brass-bell horn. Don't miss this opportunity to own a gorgeous vintage Victor which has been meticulously restored and adjusted. Every aspect of the instrument has been addressed within its historical context. No matter from whom or from where you buy a Victor, you can not find a finer instrument than we offer at phonophan. In fact, we spend a good part of each day undoing the mistakes of other dealers! 

 

Quarter-sawn oak cabinet with ID plate featuring the famous "His Master's Voice" logo. The hardware, clean and bright. The reliable Victor spring motor will run any 78 rpm record. 78s are plentiful and can be found in every locality, but if you need some to start you off, we are happy to include some with the instrument.


The machine is scrupulously crisp in every respect. The original back bracket sports its factory gold filigree. The soundbox (needlehead) has been expertly rebuilt to produce sweet music. That's where the awkward restorations of other dealers often fail -- they do not have the skill to regulate and adjust the soundbox -- they don't have an "ear" for music, and this crucial factor dooms them forever to produce inferior work. Furthermore, the motor is equally vulnerable to the ineptitude of amateur repairers. It is important to understand how to correctly regulate these ancient instruments, and phonophan has the 46 years of experience to do the job right.


A new mainspring assures plenty of playing power. Spotless and smooth-running, no hit-or-miss eBay junkers from us.


The Victor II is a delightful blast of musical mirth from the past! From phonophan you always buy with confidence -- no text copied and pasted directly from other Web sites, no vague or inaccurate descriptions, no silly personal observations lacking historical merit. Consumers are wise to take with at least a POUND of salt what they read online nowadays -- but remember, at phonophan we literally "wrote the book!"
