    There are different routes for restoration depending on the condition of the player. It may be that the cabinet is in good condition with just a few bumps and scrapes or it may be completely trashed, the cloth is ripped and stained and the cabinet is damaged.

    Your options are to have a restoration, retaining as much of the original as possible or to have it completely recovered. We have cloth covering that matches or is very similar in appearance to the original. Or you could have any finish you desire.

    Read our step by step guide showing the restoration process of a Dansette.

    If you’d like us to restore your Dansette then please give us a call on 08081 33 45 78 or alternatively you can email us at info@dansette.com

    Have Dansette Popular. Seems to be running slow ? Is there any obvious cure or is it needing restoration?
    Thanks.

    Speakers are playing very low. One if the control knobs is. Broken off. Very slight damage to the material beside where the needle rests. How much would it cost to repair each of these. Thanks

    I have a Dansette Stereophonic A35.
    I have replaced all 3 valves but the amplifier seems dead.
    The record deck works perfectly at all 4 speeds. (Could probably do with a new LP/78 stylus. All the wiring and joints appear to be OK and despite good lighting, (twin 60 watt fluorescent tubes above} plus a powerful torch I cannot see any signs of deterioration e.g. drops of substance under the transformers or discolouration of any of the small resisters and condenses etc.
    One error I may have made, I replaced the cable from the main unit and the second speaker with suitable twin cable, but I may have crossed the wires, i.e. at one end I may have connected the positive to the negative. Will this matter?
    thank you for reading this epistle and will be very grateful for any assistance you can give me.
    (Note, I am 83 years old and hard of hearing so cannot use a ‘phone)
    Yours sincerely,

    Peter Bailey.
