    And for good measure, a Garrard 770 w/Unimech:

    Not sure this one was worth the effort, but it belongs to my wife's grandfather, so I soldiered on with it.

    ... and that, boys and girls, is why we don't have record changers any more.

    ;)

    Hateful things... Garrard were the hatefulest of them all; my father hated servicing them. I always thought that the Dual automatics had about five times as many parts for any given function than were actually needed.

    My father liked the VM (Voice of Music) mechanisms and owned a VM changer that served from 1958 until well into the 1980s. It was, in fact, my first hifi record player; I put a cheap Pickering conical stylus cartridge on it ca. 1975 or 76 and played pretty respectable mono through an EV Wolverine LS12 fed by a rather glorious (actually) EICO HF-52 PP EL34 mono integrated (50 wpc, with superb iron.

    I would've rescued the VM when he downsized from a house to apt in 2006, but it was a little too rusted and gunky cosmetically due to a decade or so of damp storage :(

    Fun fact, the last, and arguably the ultimate, VM changers were sold as the BIC 940/960/980 in the mid 1970s (after the demise of VM).

    Gary at VOM is still doing business with parts and stuff. I know several guys over on Vinyl Engine recommend him for certain items.

    I had to take that Garrard down to almost bare bones in order to clean/service the speed/size selector. There are four settings: 78, 45, 33 (7 in.), & 33 (12 in.), so yeah...lots of fun!
