    I am looking for any information on a serenade machine that I have acquired.
    It has a 78 record player inside the back box.
    I can't find any manufacturer and I'm missing a few parts.
    Does anyone know anything about it ???
    As you can see I have started the restoration and its looking quite different.

    You could have a lone survivor there. Stannite Automatics was a designer of coin operated games. They built original games and sold games from America which were or were not modified by them. That playfield could be from another manufacturer.

    How many points is needed for the record player to start spinning? Interesting. Or does the start on start up and plays until all the balls are finished.

    Ive never ever heard of this game. Lloyd at Coinopwarehouse could have information on it. He has a vast knowledge of all things rare like this.

    I have found a guy with TWO of these but they are pretty wrecked !
    Strangely though , all 3 machines differ in some way ? All 3 playfields have different ball guide-posts and the cabinets also differ a bit.
    As for the record player, there is a wire from the playfield that can go into one of 6 points that have different score amounts, so I guess that where it is placed would determine what score the player plays the record.
    The record inside is Yodeling Boy ! ( I heard it on YouTube, hilarious)
    Thanks for the responses, anymore info will be most appreciated.
