Victor and Victrola Sales


 

As of September 1, 2012, we are launching our online catalog of phonographs for sale. This will take many months to fully populate, but eventually will include a very large variety of Victor and Victrola models and styles. We have many hundreds of Victor products in stock at all times. Please be patient as we roll-out the listings of our inventory. Feel free to have a look and check-back frequently for new listings.

Our inventory consists ONLY of high quality examples of original and well-restored Victor and Victrola phonographs that are historically accurate, fully tested and ready for use. Our descriptions are accurate and our condition grading is very conservative. We stand behind what we sell. All our machines are guaranteed to operate properly for two full years. That even includes accidental damage (e.g. the grandkids overwind it or if Fido chews on the soundbox). Nobody else comes close to this warranty. Machines which have been refinished will be clearly denoted as such, with a complete description of work done. Links to online videos showing operation and condition details are provided with each item.

As with our restoration work, we are not the cheapest seller of phonographs to choose from. But our selection, product quality and after-sale guarantee is second-to-none. While some others may push glitzy-looking restorations that are incorrect in both finish materials and repair processes, we choose to focus on historically correct original and properly restored machines, right down to the correct nuts, bolts and washers. And we never sell poor, mediocre, replica, pieced-together or incorrect machines. Period.

Yes, you can buy a Victor or Victrola at a lower price from Ebay, Craigslist or from your neighborhood used furniture store. However, consider the following:

We are dismayed at what is frequently sold via online auction or by some antique dealers as "100% original" or "historically correct". These are often phonographs with incorrect parts, incorrect (swapped) dataplates and/or poorly restored elements. This sell anything attitude compromises the integrity of this hobby; it propagates a very unethical and distorted view toward the phonograph-collecting community.  Our sales policy of maintaining respect for the buyer and the historical importance of these machines assures that you are getting a correct and accurately represented Victor or Victrola which will provide years of reliable service.
