Mike has been buying, selling, servicing and rescuing gramophones for 15 years. His clients are varied and diverse from young couples wanting something different to take on a picnic to older people wanting to own a piece of nostalgia they remember from their younger days.

There is nothing quite like the sound of a 78 spinning and playing the old tunes with the atmospheric crackles and imperfections that come with the beautiful machines.

After realising that not everyone necessarily wants to own a gramophone (bit like an old car they need some TLC). Mike's gramophones are now available to hire for one off events.

Whether it be a background to your champagne reception, a country picnic or a swanky cheese and wine party, the gramophones are available to hire with training on how to use them included. Or if you want to, you can also hire Mike or his son to play the gramophone for you.
