From the silver age of jukeboxes, this 1955 classic is everything you would expect from a 1950's chrome dream.A truely visible mechanism, and gleaming chrome and glass everywhere.Fitted with it’s original valve amplifier and a massive 15" speaker and high frequency horn - the sound has to be heard to be believed!
Launched in 1955, the Rock-Ola 1448 is one of two versions launched by us that year. This model offers a 120 selections from 60 records. It plays 45rpm singles and has a wonderful, rich quality to the stereo sound.
Like all our vintage jukeboxes, the 1448 has undergone a thorough restoration and is therefore in superb condition inside and out. As you might expect, she plays as well as she looks, and no one can deny that she looks stunning.
As with most jukeboxes of the period one can enjoy the theatre of watching the discs being selected from the carousel before being lightly placed on the turntable by a mechanical arm.
These jukeboxes are further distInguished by a complete title strip assembly which displays all the selections at once, organised by musical styles. Pushing one of the top category buttons lights up an arrow pointing to a vertical section of title strips for the corresponding category.
This is one of the most sought after jukeboxes ever made by Rock-Ola. Classic mid-century design and a truly authentic tube amplifier sound, it plays 60 x 45rpm vinyl records. It has been fully refurbished and has had a full “nut and bolt” restoration. Our engineers have completely taken the whole machine apart, the last time it was in pieces it was in our former factory in Chicago!
The wooden cabinet has been stripped back to the bare wood, filled repaired and repainted. The metalwork has been polished and re-chromed, we used the same company that does our chroming in California. The mechanism has been completely stripped and refurbished. Importantly the amplifier has been set up and perfectly paired to the original speaker system, it rocks! It is sold in a grade A1 condition.
She is just about as good as we can get her, we know a thing or two about Jukeboxes, we have been making them over 90 years!
