My HMV 511 gramophone

Recommended Posts

I acquired this machine about 10 years ago, and it is one of my favorites.  It has a #4 soundbox, and the cabinet was repurposed from the HMV 510 model.  Later HMV 511s use a slightly different cabinet that was purpose built for the HMV 511, since it was relatively popular.  The gramophone has a large horn that wraps around the inside of the cabinet, and it a very good performer.

Nice detail on the doors which matches the woodwork just above.

I like how the motor board is flush with the top of the cabinet. Looks amazing.
