Quoted from wayout440:

That's a real beauty. My buddy restored one just like it, so I know what it looks like in person.

Thanks much! It's become the love of our house.
(And having been a 'real live DJ' in commercial radio from '77 to '82, I still love vinyl!).

I'm really interested in getting a jukebox for the game room. Thanks guys

Here is the very first piece of Jukebox equipment I ever purchased (probably 15 years ago now).

I have never hooked it up so It's always been kind of an decorative piece for me.

I really want to get into restoring jukes. Is there any kind of site like Pinside dedicated to jukeboxes?

Where's the best place to learn about repairing/restoring jukeboxes?

#57 2 years ago

Here is my Rockola fireball 100 cd jukebox. Guests use it a lot more than any pinball machine

The only resources I know of are a mailing list - HIGHLY recommended - these people can help with ANYTHING - but they expect you to have a manual and know how to read it:

http://lists.netlojix.com/mailman/listinfo/jukebox-list

And ten this forum, which again, they expect you to know how to read a manual -

I picked this Seeburg SQS160 up for almost nothing (I wanted one after watching Tron Legacy again). I was surprised to learn afterwards that not many were made like the almost identical STD160. Still trying to find a Seeburg emblem for the bottom...

Search seller MFFE on eBay. Bill Butterfield has tons of old parts and may have the emblem you need. His web site is http://www.jukebox-parts.com/

Another good place for used parts is Durfee Coin Op at http://www.jukeboxparts.com
He's currently having a sale.

My first thoughts after buying my first pinball machine over 20 years ago was.....now I need to buy a jukebox.
At the present time I have the V-200,Rockola CD and the Seeburg R still around, but all else went to good homes.
I also had an AMI J-200 not shown in pictures.

Anyone interested in buying my nice original condition Seeburg R in last picture? It works, picks and plays all records both sides, but needs work make perfect. Comes with new gold grill cloth, repro glass instruction plates , repro lower pillar glass and full manual.

Your AMI G-200 is nice. I have many of the same jukes you've owned. One on my wish list is the G-200. Fantastic AMI horn sound and their first 200 select machine. Other AMIs I have are the H-200, I-100, Continental II and MM-6.

#68 2 years ago

Every pinball collection needs at least one juke. I got to find my pictures of the AMI-200 J I had so I can post them here. It was nice.

Price check on the AMI Model B pictured below. (only one I got sent to me so far)
Assumed does not work at all. I can see that some front pieces are missing.

Do I pass on it completely?
Offer a $100 ?
Other?

Not looking to flip... this would be my first jukebox. Not scared of the mechs or electronics... but if it's a basket case, I may consider modernizing it with touchscreen, MP3, etc.

Thanks.

Thats a pretty cool looking cabinet. Not sure what it would be worth exactly but if I were looking for a project 100 seems reasonable, especially for something with a visible mech.

#71 1 year ago

I would go look at it inside and out and make sure its complete. If so, grab it. That box fully working will be you joy.

Here's my Ami Continental 2. I have the wallboxes for it as well, but have been trying to figure out how to make it work wirelessly with the jukebox, no luck so far.

I desperately need either a working amplifier for a Rockola 1455 or an unrestored amp that is a good candidate for rebuilding. Anyone out there able to help?

Thank you for the add. I come here seeking the advice from the Lords. I recently inherited (actually saved) a 1960 q160 Seaburg jukebox from the scrapyard. The box/cabinet essentially has absolutely nothing in it. No speakers no amplifier, no nothing, it's got the coin mechanism and the selector unit for the buttons up front. But the cabinet it's in really decent shape with really no other parts to speak of, So let's get to the question at hand. Down the road is a 1962 LPC-1 for sale. I would like to take the two machines and creative functioning hybrid machines. I want to remove the record mechanism from the LPC-1 and place it in the Q160 so I can play 45s through modern tube equipment. I know, I know, what some might be thinking. But it's simply just too expensive to repair this machine for a budget collector like myself. Then the second unit, the '63 LPC-1 I would like to leave all the original equipment in the lower unit, the receiver, amp and original speakers connecting a Bluetooth device in place of the record mechanism. Can this be done, has it been done, Am I my crazy? any advice is appreciated and needed.

Neat project Rick. The first road block is it appears you are missing the electrical selector (switches that go below the buttons). The mech should slide right in. You also need to think about controlling the mech. Hop on the Seeburg Yahoo group, good people there.

#85 1 year ago

I love jukeboxes. I have six currently. The oldest is a Columbia Graphophone from 1898 that plays 2 minute wax cylinders, heh. The remainder are 78 and 45 rpm players. My faves are the 78s- Seeburg Trashcan (1947) and Wurlitzer 600K (1938). Nothing beats listening to really old 78s on a valve amplified commercial system

I modded two of the 45s to accept 3.5mm input, so can play Spotify etc on tablets, or even old tech like iPods (heh). Nice to remotely control from an iphone while playing pins. But nothing, of course, beats the sound of vinyl through these beasts. I listened to Space Oddity recently and it literally gave me spinal shivers. Something about valves, man.

Hello,
I have a Rock-ola CD 100 with the orange computer, amp etc. Somewhere around mid 90's. Would love to figure out how to play songs from the phone through it.
Found this site along time ago. Sells stuff to convert but not for Rock-ola May be a help.

I have a Red Rowe CD100E. It is great. It was HUO one owner and didn't have a scratch on it until I tried to move it out of their house. Other than replacing the battery it has worked fine.

The RockOla cybersonic (i think thats what they called them) has an aux audio input. What I would do is get a bluetooth reciever and hook that to the aux input.

Just playback from your phone connected via bluetooth. The amp will kick on when a signal is recieved and treat it as background/house audio. The jukebox's cd mech will take playback priority but it does a nice quck fade out/in.

It may require some config in the settings to enable. I think the aux audio also has a seperate volume control in the setup.

Just picked up this Seeburg SCD-1 a few weeks a go.
Still have to figure out why the little lights behind the graphics wont turn on.
But the Sony cd-60 works ok which I hear is usually a 50/50 kind of deal.

Looks great! Does that one say Made in Mexico on the ID tag? Regardless, can you post a pic of the ID tag when you get a chance? It would be appreciated.

Just found this thread. Some great jukes here. After coming to terms with the fact I’ll never afford the 60’s Wurlitzer I had to “learn” to love some of the 70’s/80’s monstrosities. After many lessons, I achieved it and now really appreciate the later vinyl models, so much so I pitched for one of these, a Rowe R-89. It’s proper 80’s. With the nightrider pulsing light bars in time with the beat. It’s loaded with 80’s cheese and provides hours of fun for the family in our kitchen. God knows how I existed without a jukebox in the house
