Here is a  classic Dansette Record Player you dont see too much the "Challenge" fully restored & serviced to as new working condition! finished in ALL its original rexine coverings of classic red & cream! its fitted with gleaming brass effect fittings, The turntable is a quality Garrard Autoslim turntable that plays speeds of 16, 33, 45 & 78rpm about 8 records can be stacked & will be played automatically or manually if preferred two brass capped controls are mounted on the front one a combined on/off volume, & a tone, there is a red pilot light that comes on when the player is switched on, The iconic Dansette Challenge badge is to the left      

This Dansette "Challenge" dates from 1963, The Challenge was very like the much more common Dansette Tempo but it has the two control knobs at each end as opposed to the Tempo that had the knobs both at the right hand side, it was not made in large ammounts & had a short production run so today you dont see them very much! It was the Dansette that brought music to the nations teenagers quality record players in many colour scemes , many companys made record players but none had quite the style & classic look that Dansettes had they are now regarded as design icons & they truly sum up a golden age of music of the 1960s perfectly!

This "Challenge" has been stripped & cleaned inside & out, the colours are not faded but are bright & vibrant the rexine is the original & has NOT been recoverd the cream was simply cleaned up the red had to be revived to be vibrant again, red & cream is the classic look of the Dansettes, its not mint but the overall condition i would describe as top notch for a 50 year old player! the latches & hinges are original & have been removed and cleaned & treated to gleam like new! the lid labels are also originals & not reproductions,  the turntable mat is original & in as new condition not hardened at all! the cloth covering the front panel is perfect with no rips! the turntable is very clean & bright,  the original carry handle is fitted & this is in very nice condition. all in all a very smart looking Dansette with great sound ideal for you vintage or not so vintage vinyls!    

The single EL84 valve amplifier has been serviced with any out of spec components being replaced, for safety a new insulated mains cable has been fitted, a 3amp correct fuse is fitted to the plug, Its fitted with a perfect reconditioned BSR X3H high output cartridge this will give many years of listening pleasure & is mono/stereo compatible so all records can be played, a new Lp/45 stylus & 78 stylus is fitted, The turntable has been lubricated & works as it should on ALL speeds, the autochanger works just as it should & is not sluggish during the changing of records! there is no crackle from the volume or tone controls that are fully responsive!

This is a great chance to own a iconic original vintage Dansette, the "Challlenge" is a true desgin classic, It was the ipod of its day as being quite compact it was used by teenagers to take to partys to play the latest tunes! by being smaller than some other Dansettes it can fit into spaces where space is at a premium & despite its compact size it has very nice loud sound! it would make a fantastic center peice in any room, its sure a Dansette not to miss! It should also prove to be a sound investment... 

The player will be well packed for delivery or it can be picked up if prefered I have sold many vintage record players over the last few years with 100% positive feedback so bid with confidence.

Many thanks for looking..
