A very happy David from Eastbourne took delivery of his vintage HMV 2419 stereo radiogram. I think he's pleased with it!
Good evening Bob … I am sitting in front of my fantastic HMV Stereo which is absolutely fantastic. I am as you can imagine very pleased with it… worth the wait. All delivered ok by Simon. Stereo radio is brilliant I must be in a good area here. I think I need to read about the blue tooth later!!!! Thank you Bob made an old man happy
A truly lovely message arrived today 30th July, 2023 from Cath in Cambridgeshire...
Hi Bob, the beautiful Dansette arrived in perfect condition. We are all completely blown away with how amazing it looks. My husband couldn’t believe it was the same machine and we both agreed that adding the legs makes it a perfect piece of retro furniture. My brother was very emotional when he realised what I had given him and the wonderful work that you have done on our treasured family heirloom. He couldn’t believe his eyes. David, my brother, is going to message you himself to thank you as soon as he has got over how great it looks and the amazing sound. He said it took him right back to when our mum was gifted it for Christmas by our dad all those years ago. I loved the sound, there is something really special about it, its so pure. I cannot thank you enough Bob. You are a truly amazing craftsman, not just that, but you actually care so much about the happiness that you give.
Kind regards always
It's so rewarding to get such lovely comments back from clients. Here's a little snippet from Martin & Sue in West Sussex who have just taken delivery of their cherished, restored Dansette Bermuda...
Yes, everything arrived OK and your packaging was superb no damage at all. We are absolutely delighted with what you have done and I have managed to link up the Bridgit Box through our sound bar and it’s amazing, so happy we went down this route. Many thanks again for your outstanding work and it’s nice to have in effect re-cycled an old unit which now works well. It will be a fight as to whom gets their favourite records on first.

A touching and thoughtful message from Steve in the northeast...
Hi Bob that’s me received my Dansette. You certainly know how to wrap it up because it arrived sound and secure. It’s now in pride of place in my room and looks absolutely fantastic. The colour is ideal and I’m glad I went for the light wood legs as they look great and match in well with the trim on the player. I’ve got it up and running and love the sound. It’s great to go through all my old vinyl and also it’s bringing back lovely memories of my late wife as there’s records of hers and ones we bought together. Again many thanks for all your effort and keep up the good work. I may be back in touch soon as I’ve been thinking about your Bridget Box.
A very thoughtful review to start the new year...
My wife very kindly bought the 1960's reconditioned Dansette Conquest record player in red/cream from you for my Christmas present.
I wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for your obvious skills and labour in restoring these beautiful machines and allowing those of us, like myself, who remember the holistic experience when we form a relationship with a piece of vinyl to re-experience it again. The audio that comes from the Dansette is first class and defies technology with how whole and complete the audio sounds from one treble and one bass button and the fact that the player is over 60 years old serves as a metaphor in ageing with class and prestige.
I have had great joy in listening to some of my original 33's and 45's with surprisingly little scratching. In many way I look forward to hearing the scratching which somehow adds to the experience!
Thank you again for helping to keep vinyl music alive with these beautiful nostalgic pieces and the part it all serves in introducing the experience to a new generation.
I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for all the work you did on the Dansette. All I had was an idea of what I thought might be a nice present but you really brought it to life in a way that I couldn't even imagine.
From day one your passion for what you do and professionalism was evident. You got back to my email in half an hour, then we were chatting on the phone about the project for about an hour later that day!
Thank you so much for keeping me involved in the project and the decision making as you went along and really understanding what it was I wanted and doing everything you could to make it happen!!
I can't really see a world where I need another classic record player restored, but if I ever do you can bet I'm coming your way. Make sure you drop me an email if you ever find yourself in London, I reckon I own you a beer!!
All the best,
p.s. The present couldn't have gone down better, there were a lot of tears!!
Good afternoon Bob,
Just a quick note to confirm that the Conquest has arrived safe and sound (excellent packing by the way) and looks and sounds magnificent. Haven't tried the connectivity elements yet but am sure they'll be fine also.
Once again, huge thanks for sourcing, restoring and putting it together for me. It's a beautiful thing and I look forward to many years of listening pleasure with it
With grateful thanks,
Hi Bob, just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you again - radiogram safely delivered and set up and it’s an absolutely beautiful piece of kit and sound emerging. I’m delighted with my purchase and your craftsmanship, and without getting too sentimental it’s already brought me and the old man together as he’s now dropping round to insist we listen his dusted-off old collection together, so priceless in a sense! Will leave a proper review in next few days but thanks again, and will be sure to pass on your details when fellow millennial friends realise they need a radiogram in their lives too!
Good Evening Bob,
Lin and I are are absolutely delighted with the record player, we have used it just twice to date and without doubt it exceeds our expectations, I am so pleased you managed to offer us the HiFi model the extra was well worth it. Thank you very much for your attention advice and professionalism from the first time we spoke to the day of collection, it has been a pleasure to deal with someone of your integrity.
Once again, thank you very much, With My Best Wishes Ross and Lin.
I can’t believe I am writing this listening to my Dad’s Shirley Bassey LP on his 1958 Dansette. Thank you so much for the fantastic restoration, it looks stunning and sounds incredible - unbelievable for its age. The blue tooth adapter adds a whole new dimension to the Dansette experience.
It has brought back so many happy childhood memories for me, my brother and sister- we’ve all shed a few happy tears. It is now a marvellous family heirloom and a great conversation piece that will give my family hours of pleasure.
It was great to meet you yesterday Bob and once again thank you for the beautiful restoration of my Dad’s treasured Dansette. Best wishes Linda
Oh Blimey Bob! What a revelation! Your fantastic work has almost brought me to tears! I can hear all my impatient 45's chattering with excitement. As a last word Bob - here's your masterclass in it's new home! Roger...
Bob, thanks so much.
This is simply breathtaking and we had forgotten how good music sounds and feels on vinyl. You truly are a craftsman of the highest order.
Thank you so much.
Trust all is well, just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful job you did on our radiogram - simply put, it's a thing of beauty! The sound quality is incredible and the unit itself is flawless. Thank you for the updates, technical Info and back up information. Packaging and the wrapping with such great care and the courier did a super job too!! Thank you so much we are just absolutely delighted
Best regards, Val
Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I have been enjoying listening to vinyl again and am thrilled with the Dansette- You are a genius and the care and attention in your restoration is very evident. Its beautiful in its own right and am sure looks better than when it left the factory, sound is great and I love waiting for the valves to warm up before any sound. Thank you again and also for all your efforts chasing up parcel force!
The Dansette player has arrived and I am absolutely delighted with it. What a fantastic job you have done! Worth every penny. When I decided to send the player to a specialist, I really had no idea what might be involved, but I have a much better understanding from all the images and reports that you have sent me, thank you for keeping me informed every step of the way.
Thank you also for sending the supporting documentation.
The sound by the way is amazing for such a small Amp !
With kind regards,
Report on The Dansette.
Very beautiful and sounds amazing, and very loud!
We are very pleased with it and it will surely give us many fun hours - and even some parties later in the year. Absolutely excellent work and wonderfully restored
Thank you again, Bob, for a first class service. The communication was speedy and helpful, the updates and photos on the restoration process were detailed and really whetted our appetite, and the level of care with the restoration was outstanding. The packing and all the info on the machine and modern additions is first-rate.
The sound is amazing with very responsive bass and treble, and it is very loud!
I shall certainly recommend you to other interested audiophiles.
Very best wishes Jo
I somehow thought my customer would be happy with her restored 1963 Dansette senator...
My Word, Wow, WOW!!! I could just cry seeing that, it looks so amazing! Oh my goodness you have worked complete magic. It looks so fantastic Bob - thank you so much. I can’t wait to see it for real and more importantly listen to it again! My Granny used to play all the records from the musicals (and blooming Julio Iglesias ha ha!) but can’t wait to listen to my families records together. It will be so fun over the Easter holidays. Again it looks unreal - full glory of 1963 ha ha. Thanks again - ever so much!
