Boomboxery friends i present to you an early in the morning find from this past Sunday. :-)

No introduction needed because this is the industry standard the Legendary Technics SL-1200 MK2.

There wasnt a section with ''other finds'' so i am posting it in the general chat section.

Its not in the best condition, missing a lot of parts like the spindle, the tonearm, the dustcover

the armrest the 45 rpm adaptor and maybe more but for 30 e i had to get this poor fella back home.So i did. 

I couldnt just leave it there.

Its with a humble experienced technician guy an expert with turntables

right now and hopefully in my hands fully restored in about a week.


Here is a pic on how it looked yesterday.

Ofcourse there will be a picture uploaded when this baby will be with me again

just for the shake of the before and after pic.

Never opened a turntable before and i wouldnt want  to mess up with it :yes:


I also saw a mini hitachi among others.

I have a knockoff Audio Technica 120LP that works amazing. I inherited a bunch of my moms old records some of which are Greek and I remember when I was a kid when she played them. Those Technics turntables go for big money these days. The poor little Hitachi is just screaming to be rescued from its surroundings!

I found 2 of these in working condition at the junk yard in a van , the owner gave them to me for free and i sold both on eBay within 5 minutes of listing them. Made damn good money but the shipping was hard and they made it OK .

Thanks for the links with the spare parts you guys ! :-)

Thank you also for the nice words. It is still with the technician, a lot of work to do

but it will come back to life plus it will come with a new head and a new dustcover !

Cant wait to post some pics of it fully restored.

the dust cover can run at least $100.00 us and most times more than that.
