Everything For Your Dansette Record Player & Vintage Audio Equipment Galore!
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!
You could say that Terence is happy with the restoration of his 1959 Dansette RG31 Radiogram...
Bob that’s ridiculous! She’s utterly beautiful.
I have no words and the biggest smile on my face!
I’m stunned. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I knew I’d made the right choice getting in touch with you. Thank you ever so much. Terence
A lovely testimonial has just arrived this afternoon from Peter. This stunning Dansette HiFi MKII was intended for his daughter. Looks like a change of plan is in hand!...
It is stunning and cannot believe the quality of your workmanship. The old paperwork included is also a nice touch and found a Christmas label in the envelope. You may have me back for another. Smitten with it and I may keep it for myself and get my daughter a different one.
Peter from Sittingbourne
Thank you Bob , The Dansette is beautiful and sounds so good! She’s a little beaut ! Spent last night with a bottle of red and old albums ! Was amazing ! You’ve been fab from start to finish, and I’d recommend you to anyone thanks again.
Karen from Burnley
A lovely testimonial has just arrived this evening from Alex just a day after he took delivery of his beautiful turquoise Dansette Conquest Auto as a birthday present for his wife...
"In my search for a 1960’s record player as a present for my wife, I was very fortunate to find Bobs website.
Bob is clearly passionate about his work and couldn’t have been more helpful or knowledgable, explaining the key differences between the various Dansette record players and patiently answering my questions. After much thought, I choose a blue 1963 Dansette Conquest Auto player.
We received the Dansette today and after carefully unpacking it, my wife couldn’t have been more delighted. It both looks and sounds absolutely fantastic.
If you are looking for a high quality, restored, Dansette record player that, is probably better than it was originally you should definitely give Bob a call."
