RELIVE THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE
You have a stereo console and been looking for a place to have it restored or repaired? We are just an email away.
We repair and restore pieces from early 1900 wind-up 78 rpm record players, early 50s, 60s record changers and to the most current turntables of today.
An engine builder by trade but my pleasurable pastime is listening to and tinkering with tube audio equipment. It has been a long time hobby and just love it. I've always wanted a separate turntable to play my 45 and 78 RPM records and being able to stack them so what I needed was a record changer. I came across this vintage Packard Bell hi-fi unit (mono) at a local thrift store for $30. Not bad for an old tube unit although it was in rough shape.
I went to the process of taking it apart (the exciting part). The plan was to make the record changer work and check the electronics. Before I knew it, I was already working on the cabinet. The unit turned out looking really sharp! One time a friend of mine came by and saw the unit. He told me that a lot of people are looking for something like it. He asked me if I would consider selling it but was kinda hesitant. After a couple of days, I decided and tried putting an ad and, you guessed it right... I sold it quicker than I thought.
I then started looking for another unit...sold it...then the third...sold it...and then the first full size stereo console... and that's how it all started. Now, here I am putting smiles on your faces, You, my customers who has the same love for these forgotten gems.
