HMV GRAMOPHONE MODEL 104, 1932

A beautiful example of the famous HMV Gramophone. The sound was fair due to the wooden box, but not as good as some horn types. The style similar to this was first introduced in 1913.

Your comments:

  • The horn in this model (mine is a 104A) is manufactured from steel and very well shaped. With the original soundbox (a model 5 or 5A) produces a very pleasing sound. Often it requires a cushion to be placed in front as there is no volume control (a pair of doors) with this model. Volume has to be selected by choosing the appropriate needle (soft, normal and loud)
