  1. This is an excellent Site for both the novice and specialised collector of phonograph records.Highly recommended,Robert Morritt author of ‘Just For The Record’ and ‘Rockin’ in the Desert’ and to be released April 2013 in England ‘Guitar Men’.

  2. I have some very old record from okeh, columbia,odeon, victor, and moravia. Can anyone tell me if they hold any value? Some date to 1908 and are in Czehco-slovak, some by Frank sinatra, some by Horace White, Jozef Kalman, peerless quartet, Percy Faith George Olsen

    • Leon-May I suggest you start this as a topic in our forum page. That way you will get other viewers involved in your question.


  3. where is this forum page

    • Go to the left sidebar and navigate down until you see the word “forum”. Click on it and there you are. You will either have to register as a new user or log on with one of the social media sites listed. Good Luck!

  4. I am wondering if you can tell me the value of a Mason and Risch phonograph style 175? If not, can you recommend a contact?

    • Hello Joyce!

      The value of any phonograph depends on whether or not it needs parts or a tune up in order for it to work. If your phonograph is in good working order, then I would say it should fetch about $500.00 or more possibly. A good resource also is the Victor Talking Machine Forum-you will need to register to ask your question. The link is below, and good luck!
