Turntable Platter Mats

As the result of a recently fun DIY project, Retrophonic is producing these wool felt turntable mats under our house brand. We have lots of these turntable platter mats in assorted colours. More colours & patterns are being added regularly to the inventory.

Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woollen fibres. It is often used as damper to reduce vibration and absorb unwanted noise.

We currently have red & black in stock. You can purchase these online from Jan 2013 onwards at SGD5 each.

Turntable Replacement Belt

Replacement rubber belt for turntable TT-182W, LY-116B & LY-118. We don’t sell this as standalone item. For a fee of SGD15 inclusive of part & service, we will replace your turntable belt plus lubricate it.

Within months, we setup a new boutique record shop in Singapore and start selling vinyl records, LPs, singles and record players. What started as a personal hobby now becomes a small business. That’s how Retrophonic Records is born.

As this is a hobbyist business, we don’t have a full blown shop front. The current ‘shop’ is a little corner that we setup within our main design company – Netsarius. If you wish to visit us, kindly called 6220 8489 to confirm availability. Most of time, we are open Mon-Fri: 9am – 6pm.
