Project Parvus

New purchase. A bit of a project, as can be seen.

And the inside of the case...

It is a Parlophone Parvus portable gramophone. Or the remains of one; well, it looks bad, but it's pretty much complete and the spring and diaphragm appear to be fine. Not a lot of information about this particular type online, but I'd guess it is from the early 30-ies. Underneath the turntable the outline of the original label with the quality sign-offs and dates can still be seen, the label is however long gone.

Needs work, i.e. project :)

Already underway, taken apart completely and started cleaning.


  1. I can tell it will be worth the effort. Good luck with the project.

    1. Thank you :)
      Very rewarding hobby activity if/when it 'comes back'.
