eBay watch: Dansette Bermuda record player

Dansette1

We have flagged up some Dansettes in the past, but this Dansette Bermuda record player with legs is a real gem.


An original 1960s model, it's in an 'army green and cream' colourway, with an off white vertical lined front loudspeaker panel, original Dansette on/off volume and tone gold capped control knobs, black Dansette logo and red power indicator which lights up when the player is on.

Of course, it also has a valve amplifier for an authentic, rich 1960s sound, as well as a four-speed Monarch deck autochanger and four original Dansette legs for support. Perhaps just as importantly, this Dansette has been fully serviced, with ageing parts replaced and fitted with a new plug and a new stylus. There's also a copy of the Dansette Bermuda operating instructions too.

Essentially, it's an old player in what appears to be as-new condition. So a good investment. Right now, the auction price is 99 pence.

    I had one of these above fifty years ago – it was a red/pink colour – diamond stylus and held 8 records at 45 rpm also played 33rpm and 16rpm I think whatever that was ! I had a great time with it- Xmas gift from parents 1St record ever played on it was the easybeats Friday on my mind – oh the memories – Martin
