This new site is STILL under development! Last update September 21, 2018. We are sorry about the lack of progress - too busy at the office......
The history of mechanical music in the home
The Phonograph Room houses our collection of vintage "talking machines" and is now located at Compass Music and Arts Centre in Brandon, VT. We are now expanding into more modern record players, tape recorders and early hi-fi up to 1970s, vintage radio and TV.
The Phonograph Rooms are an ongoing development and are still being assembled. The main rooms are complete and we are busy trying to find more space for the growing exhibit.
Personal demonstration and tour by prior arrangement: $10 per person
Do you have an old phonograph/radio/TV (pre-1970) taking up space?
Please note: this collection is made up from donations from several individuals in the USA and UK. None of the items are for sale.
Records for sale:
Currently due to overwhelming gifts, we have to restrict acceptance of donations - for records this means items of historical interest - not 1940s pop.. basically our space is full...
We accept radios, old TVs (nothing plastic), tape and record players and phonographs of course: period accessories; also any old POWER supply transformers; the black boxes that supply DC, especially ones from portable radios TVs etc from the 1980s. Tubes, and any old components, so we can build up a spares and parts resource.
Managed by Compass Music and Arts Foundation, a non-profit corporation. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to rescue and preserve our recorded heritage.
The entrance fees and voluntary donations will help us to preserve a fast-disappearing part of our cultural heritage.
