eBay watch: Restored 1960s Dansette Tempo 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.

If you want a Dansette, this 1960s Dansette Tempo record player is worthy of a closer look, especially if the price stays at a reasonable level.

It is down as a 1963 model, full restored and serviced for the modern era and in a duck egg blue finish, contrasting the light interior. Within that casing a  Garrard Autoslim turntable that plays speeds of 16, 33, 45 & 78rpm, while the outside has two brass capped controls for on/off, volume and tone plus a red light to indicate power.

Of course, there's a single valve amplifier too for that rich vintage output. The one has been serviced like all the internal fittings, with anything that needs replacing being replaced. There's also a modern-day plug on it, as well as a correct output stereo compatible cartridge.

But best of all is that this Dansette is an auction item with a low starting price. Right now it's at £4.99 if you want to put in a bid.
