Amplifiers Ltd - the Makers of the Meltrope soundbox did many other things as well including making very advanced looking pickups to enable a gramophone to play through a Radio - and with a number of colletts so that different sized steel or fibre - yes you can use Fibre needles - can be used

they weren't cheap, 50/- would have bought a new suit at Montague Burtons ! (Some gramophone collectors still wear theirs to - day)
here's an Advert from 1934

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
