Vintage Columbia Suitcase 3 Speed Record Player Phonograph Model 312 Picture(s) and Description:
A classic portable record player that was treated very well. Columbia suitcase model 312. See pictures for best representation of very modest wear for its age. Has flip over needle cartridge for 33/45 and 78 speeds. The turntable has little wear on felt covering and operates at all three speeds. Tested with a 45 and the record plays clearly - no crackling from the speaker etc. There is however a problem that is typical of older record players - it hums when it is warmed up - whether playing a record or not. I see internet chat that this is a common problem with older record players and that the replacement part(s) is available and isn't expensive (worn capacitor?). I am not an expert but if you know about this or know someone that does I don't think it would take much to return this to top working order/sound. As always with older electronics you should have this checked out before operating. Happy to answer any questions. Low starting price and no reserve. A great example of a time gone by - though it doesn't appear that this one made it to many sleepovers....
