Dansette restoration

Well the  occasional bit of Hi Fi  comes my way and today it was an old dansette Bermuda from 1965. This one  is in fantastic condition considering that it had been in the loft for the past twenty two years. Just a little surface rust on the chrome trim.

Valve driven from high output crystal pick up and stylus these items are simplicity in a portable package.  Commonly found in car boot sales and junk shops most will require a new cartridge as the old ones are damaged by damp as the crystals stick together.

Once working the tone takes you back in time what a joy.
