The late, short bedplate Reginas are generally considered to be the best sounding of all Regina music boxes.
Here's one in oak, great sounding, great looking, and in great condition.
This was the very late Reginaphone version, a combination phonograph and music box. Over the years, most of the phonograph parts, ie tone arm and reproducer, were removed or lost from these, and this one is no exception. It still functions brilliantly as a music box.
This particular machine came out of the estate of a well known collector/restorer in the midwest. From all appearances, he had done some work on it and we did some work on it as well.
Everything is working as it should. The dampers are in regulation. There are no broken teeth. The machine starts and stops properly. The speed control is working. The motor runs smoothly, and all that other good stuff. Like all short bedplate machines, this has the more desirable double comb arrangement.
When I took this apart to clean out the star wheel gantry, I noticed that one mid-range tooth has a very gentle bend in it. You wouldn't notice this unless I pointed it out to you, and it in no way affects the sound.
The cabinet has been professionally refinished to a dark golden honey oak, and in its way truly enhances the beauty of the sound.
You can hear this play on the mp3 file, or you can see and hear a different disc on the youtube video below.
Includes 10 original 15.5" records.
We buy, sell, and repair antique phonographs and music boxes.
Pick-up and delivery possible in many parts of the midwest,south, and northeast.
