Seller: cyber_tigger (25,046) 100%, Location: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 383181332642 VICTOR No.2 NICKEL PLATED REPRODUCERfor the VICTOR TALKING MACHINE & VICTROLAFully Serviced ~ Sound Box ~ Excellent Nickel PlatingWith 300 American Made Needles Free This is a Nickel Plated Victor Talking Machine No.2 Soundbox-Reproducer that is suitable for most Victor Talking Machines and Victrolas. It is in excellent overall condition and perfect working order. I am including 300 Brand New US Made Steel Needles (100 Loud, 100 Medium, and 100 Soft) for your enjoyment. I guarantee your satisfaction with the quality and performance of this part. Please take your time and study the information presented here and feel free to ask questions. All of this work was performed by me, Walt Sommers, owner of Gettysburg Antique Phonographs in the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania area. The nickel plating is excellent with light wear. The black oxide finish of the rear casting has typical wear that is found on the majority of No.2 reproducers of this age. The mica diaphragm, balance springs, and all screws and nuts are original parts that work perfectly. The thumbscrew, diaphragm gaskets and rubber tone arm insert/isolator have been replaced with the highest quality replacement parts. This reproducer sounds great and I trust you will be delighted with it. It is the perfect reproducer for your Victor Talking machine or almost any floor or table model Victrola. If you have an old reproducer that buzzes like an angry hornet, or has old gaskets, a cracked diaphragm, or broken balance springs then you need me to rebuild it or trade it in on this one! All work is guaranteed for one full year. People often ask me whether they should replace an existing reproducer that they already have with one that I am selling. My preference as a collector is to keep original machines and their components together as much as possible and I recommend that advice to you also. But depending on how badly damaged your current reproducer is it might make good sense to replace it. As an example, compare the price of replacing your reproducer with the cost for me to rebuild it instead. Since I usually charge under $40 for a typical rebuild which includes complete disassembly, cleaning, polishing, new diaphragm gaskets, a diaphragm if it is required, a tone arm mounting flange/gasket, and balance springs if they are needed, it may not make sense to replace it. But if your reproducer is severely rusted or damaged with broken screws, or it is so badly oxidized that it requires nickel plating, then it could wind up costing more to repair than replacing with one I have listed. The Victor No.2, Exhibition and No.4 can be used in the place of each other. They are suitable for most Victor Talking Machines and Victrolas with the exception of the Orthophonics. They can also be used with many other brands of phonographs. This reproducer would be the perfect touch for your VV-IV, VI, VIII, IX, X, XI, XIV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, VTLA and so on. This is also perfect for the 200, 300 and 400 series consoles. The reproducer featured in this listing is as finely serviced as the very best available and I guarantee my work. Many of the reproducers and sound boxes offered on eBay, despite claims by sellers stating that their items have been professionally rebuilt, are sometimes a collection of cobbled together parts, some of which are being sold with old damaged parts. Always ask questions and study. A properly serviced Nickel Plated Exhibition or No. 2 reproducer can cost you from $125 to over $180 depending on where you shop and gold plated parts can cost in excess of $200, but I promise you that the quality of the workmanship of my services is among the very best available. I have been collecting and servicing antique phonographs, radios, and other mechanical antiques for over 40 years. I operate my shop on a full time basis, so if you need advice, parts or help with a broken motor, missing knob, damaged reproducer, damaged cabinet finish, etc., please feel free ask questions. Many very skilled people have shared their knowledge with me over the years to help me to become an accurate and proficient phonograph conservator. Sharing knowledge and information is part of helping this, and future, generations of owners and collectors. If you have questions about the processes I use to service phonographs, please feel free to ask questions. I always guarantee my work because customers deserve such assurance. The quality of my work comes from the constant study of actual antique phonographs as well as from historical documents. If you always look at history for help, you will always find the best possible answers for any problems you encounter. Condition: Used, Condition: Excellent original nickel plating with light wear. The reproducer has been expertly serviced by me, Walt Sommers. Your satisfaction is guaranteed., Modified Item: No, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States, Brand: Victor Talking Machine
