Vintage Musicmaster Point One Five Turntable w/ Tonearm

Vintage Musicmaster / Hamlin Turntable with Tonearm This turntable/tonearm combination is a Musicmaster but it is labeled Hamlin on the front of the wood base and on the tonearm. Hamlin was a high-end audio store in Seattle in the 50s and 60s. They also sold tube amps and tuners under the Hamlin name that were made for them by Trio (Kenwood). The mat does have the Musicmaster name on it. Musicmaster was made in Japan by Suzuki Denki Co. This appears to be a Musicmaster Point One Five Transcription Turntable. The tonearm is probably a Musicmaster also but has the Hamlin name on it. It measures approx. 12-1/4” long. I do not see any model number on it. This turntable is in good working order and plays at all speeds, 33, 45 and 78. It also has a variable speed (pitch) control. I do not know the manufacturer of the phono cartridge installed in the headshell. I took a picture of it so you can see it better. I hooked up the turntable to an amp and it played fine, though I do not know how much wear t is on the stylus. Because this turntable has sat idle for quite a time I would recommend lubing it. When running I could hear some faint rumbling noise that is probably due to lack of lubrication. I checked the rubber idler wheel and it appears to be in good condition. The turntable and base look very good but with some light corrosion spots on the chromed speed and pitch controls. The arm appears to be in excellent condition with some chipping of the finish at the very bottom of the mounting base (see photo). T is also some green patina on the “Hamlin” name on the wood base. The wood base is in excellent condition otherwise with just a couple of very minor nicks/scratches. The original Musicmaster mat is in good condition, still soft, but it is a little dirty. 45 adapter is included. All in all, this is a great example of the much sought after Musicmaster turntable and tonearm combo. TERMS I will send an invoice to the winning bidder within 24 hours of the close of the auction.
