eBay watch: 1960s Dansette Tempo portable record player

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


Scan through eBay and you'll find a good number of Dansette record players for sale, some cheap, some not-so-cheap, some working, some nothing more than a pile of parts. This Dansette Tempo portable record player is probably near the top of the pile, with a few bids already placed for it.

It's a classic Dansette in both shape and colour, oozing authenticity and after being on the receiving end of a full service, working as well today as it did back in 1962. The 4 speed Garrard Autoslim autochanger will play speeds of 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm manually or can load a selection of up to six records of either 7, 10 or 12 inch to be played automatically. 

Complete with a 'brand new' spare ST19 stylus, a copy of the original Garrard Autoslim instruction leaflet, printed information on stylus replacement and an A4 copy of an original retail catalogue page showing the Dansette Tempo for sale, it's currently at £67.89.
