Broken Record

Broken Record
Are you in the mood for something completely random?  I hope so!  Because I have a gramophone makeover to share!  **(record scratch)**  A what?! 
Yeah, you heard me, a gramophone!  Gramophones, for all you young folks,  were how people used to play music back in the olden days, and NO, I’m not talking about CDs.  This spectacularly salvaged relic comes from Luis and company at Restoration Workshop, which specializes in all kinds of restoration work.  So give them a call if you need a gramophone makeover, and if you happen to live in Brazil!

    I was so afraid when I first saw the “before” pic that somebody had taken it and painted it and distressed it to make it into some shabby chic crap. This is just stunning!

    That is so beautiful now! We’ve had several antique sound systems restored. One needed a new governor and another needed cabinet repair. We love them all and play them frequently. The sample you’ve shown is a wonderful example of loving restoration. Thank you for sharing this anachronism!
