Welcome to a “cyberland” where “vintage audio” is spoken and email inquiries are quickly researched and answered!
We specialize in the 1950’s through 1970’s era of popularly priced vintage phonographs, record players, consoles, and tape recorders and in particular, those Voice of Music models produced by the V-M Corporation of Benton Harbor, Michigan.
Think “everything for V-M products, but also needles,
cartridges, idler wheels, 45 rpm adapters, center posts,
belts and other commonly needed parts for everything else”.
Our record player needle and cartridge offerings are up to date, including replacement needles for the latest retro style phonographs. We feature Pfanstiehl® and vintage brands no longer with us.
Whether you are an original owner, serious collector, servicer, or have just acquired your first model at the garage sale down the street, you have come to the right place!

hint: If your changer says “Made in England”
anywhere on it, it is not a V-M product.
