We see a lot of Dansettes up for sale that have been massively reconditioned, sometimes to the point of them losing some of their original character. This 1960s Dansette Tempo portable record player seems to have retained its originality – and is a tad cheaper than the reconditioned players.
Another lovely old player up for auction, specifically this 1960s fully-serviced Dansette Tempo record player.
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.
