Not only is the cabinet of the Victor D of imposing size, with spectacular gingerbread carving, the big brass horn is a knock-out!
Original "His Master's Voice" decal.
It's easy to see why this was the most expensive instrument in the Victor line -- gorgeous cabinetry. At $65.00, this machine was within the reach of only the well-to-do.
The motor was nickel-plated to show how important this instrument was. We carefully cleaned the triple-spring motor, and regulated it. We also installed a brand new fiber drive gear, which can be seen by its reddish color in the image. These early Victor motors contained a fiber gear to keep the motor quiet, The same mechanical convention was picked up by Columbia and used well into the 1920s. Do you have 78 rpm records you want to listen to? The Victor D is the perfect instrument! It also sports a big, 12" turntable.
The support bracket, arm and elbow are spotlessly clean and bright -- original gold and blue filigree in mind-bogglingly perfect condition. All hardware is clean and free of gunk, grime and corrosion. We have rebuilt the original Exhibition soundbox to produce crisp, clear, bright, bold music. Consider the jury-rigged trash you see for sale elsewhere on the Net -- and don't you love it when these deceptive sellers say "It just needs a little cleaning up" ?
BIG, BRASH and BEAUTIFUL -- for those who will accept nothing but the best! NOBODY sweats the details like phonophan. We obsessed over every component. And we DON'T do what other dealers do -- rush the job and take shortcuts. Other dealers don't have the time and don't have the talent to do things right. This instrument is as spotless and clean as any you will ever see. We stress the imposing presence of this machine, it was then and is now a top-of-the-line instrument.
Price: $3250.00 US, plus s/h. (NY State residents must add sales tax, if applicable.)
