Hello and welcome. We are a small dedicated company specialising in good quality vinyl records & cloths / fittings for Vintage Radios. We do not just sell high ticket items but also those that for one reason or another are hard to find in nice condition. We are happy to keep a look out for particular items and keep a wish list if there is something you have been looking for at a decent price but have yet to find.
We also are specialists in supplying grille cloth and cabinet coverings and fittings for use in the repair of Vintage Radio and associated equipment. We also supply a large range of coverings and fittings for amp and speaker cabinets used for stage and studio work for the professional and hobbyist alike. Sid Chaplin (now retired) has been a major supplier to the audio world for nearly 50 years and still loves to attend the Vintage Radio and Communications Fair held in Birmingham every May where we are always delighted to meet customers old and new. Although retired Sid is still on hand to offer expert advice and help to all. His son Russell has integrated Traditional Radio Grilles into Retrospecialist and will continue to offer the same professional service that Sid has always prided himself in giving.
We welcome enquiries for supply in larger quantities than those listed for our range of cloth and fittings - we also have limited quantities of special one-off items that will be listed as we can make available but once gone these very rare original cloths/fittings will not be offered again as they will be from our last remains of old stock from the 1960's -80's.
We have an eBay shop and a Discogs shop where you can check our tens of thousands of positive feedbacks - we have always had a 100% rating with Top Seller and Powerseller status on eBay in over 10 years of trading on the site. You will find many of our low cost (£5 and under) records, cd's, and cd singles there with thousands listed and many to be added.
