An older one than we usually see, but this 1950s Dansette Major portable record player probably has more appeal because of that.

If you've got as '50s-inspired home, this could be ideal, especially if you just want a Dansette that works well and looks good, not some project you're never going to get round to finishing.

This Dansette has been ugly serviced and restored by a qualified Dansette service engineer, with that all-important valve amplifier inside, as well as featuring a line front loudspeaker panel, a BSR UA8 record deck, the original cream on/off volume and tone control knobs, original Cheney brand gold coloured hinges, the original white carry handle and the original model label.

Sold with a new twin tip stylus fitted to the high output BSR cartridge, and a new earthed mains lead, it's currently at £39.99.
