It is a nice vintage Jobophone record player in mahogany wooden case with 4 speeds from around 1950. It is family property.
There are 4 buttons on the right of the deck for setting the speed. The colour of the buttons indicate which type of needle needs to be selected, via dial at the end of the arm. The mechanism is equipped with an automatic stop.
The name JoBo is derived from the name of the owner-founder, Joek de Boer. He started the company in 1945, along with his brother Ton. The sales were handled by Jacques Sieverding. Joek de Boer dies in the late 1940s. From 1946 to 1963, gramophones are made by Jobo. The designs mainly stand out because of their originality and come from Ton de Boer. The changers are called Joboton, the normal players are called Jobophone.
The player rotates well and will be supplied with an original power cord/plug and connection for amplifier. Jobophones are rare, sought-after objects. When transported, this record player will be packaged well and shipped. Hence, the shipping costs can be a bit higher.
