Ja Ja Ja

By far, the rarest occurrence at GG&S HQ is actually wrapping up a collection, so we were absolutely elated when we wrangled the missing third in this trinity. Patrice Dupont designed the 303 UFO portable record player for Philips in 1969, and it's long been one of our space age favorites. Despite their scarcity outside of Europe, two of these migrated to the US in the forty years prior to us finding them, oddly enough. 

The lids covering the battery/power cable compartment are typically missing when you do find these ...not the case here!

They can easily accommodate your 7", 10" and 12" records. However, these remain portables, so we wouldn't use any of these cheese graters as our everyday players.
