If you avoid the Dansettes, you can get some really good value vintage record players on eBay, with a growing number sold fully restored – this 1950s Bush SRP31 record player being one of them.
The player is dated 1959 and is in a chocolate and cream finish, detailed with the Bush vintage branding and hosting a quality Garrard deck inside. It has been 'stripped & cleaned inside & out', with original parts used where possible, including the all-important valve amplifier. There's also a new stereo compatible cartridge amongst the improvements, all of which you can read about on the listing.
Best thing of all? As we said, non-Dansette players tend to be overlooked sometimes and this could be one of them. Right now, there are no bids and the price remains at just £4.99. Well worth keeping an eye on.
