78's
« on: June 16, 2013, 09:54:25 AM »
I was recenctly given about 20 albums which are probably older than I am or close to it.I am not sure if these are shellac or normal 78's.Condition of covers are ranging from bad to worse and I cannot comment on the condition of the album as I certainly am not going to play them.Most are classical recordings.The albums labels are:
His Masters Voice
Decca
Philips
etc
These are not for sale but will be given away to any forum menber who wishes to fetch them and will possibly treasure them.The reason this is not under the freebies column is that it is a specialised item so mods please leave it here.
I am based in the northern suburbs of Gauteng.
If no interest I throw them away.
Please PM me if any interest.And no  I am not going to list the titles nor will I post them.You fetch.Preferance will be given at owners discretion.

Hi Placebo

Please don't just throw them away, if there are no takers just give them to a charity shop and I'm sure a good home will be found for them.
I love 78s, but i'm not that much into classicals.

Hi Placebo,

Some of the 78's are becoming collectors items for e.g. some of the Elvis 78's.

Kind Regards

I know.But no Elvis only classical.Definately will need a ceramic cartridge.I can play 78's but only the more modern ones.
