From time to time, I run competitions and raffles, raising essential funds for charity. See below for the latest things you could win, while supporting a good cause.

A refurbished JVC TD-W106 double cassette tape deck.
Fully tested
PAT (tested)
240V/ 50Hz (so it can be used in Europe, not the US etc)

Terms and Conditions

Please note that this is a vintage item, and it has been signed on the lid with a paint pen. The machine is in excellent order, but is not new, so bear that in mind.

I can send this item anywhere in the UK mainland, but overseas postage will require a winner to supply shipping.

Great care will be taken to ensure that the tape deck is prepared for shipping using sturdy packaging and lots of bubble wrap, but I cannot guarantee damage free transport. Shipping will be provided by Hermes or Royal Mail (when the time comes) and I accept no returns for damage that may take place in transit. I may accept local collection in Worthing, West Sussex, UK with prior arrangement.

UK mainland delivery included, collection available from Worthing, West Sussex, UK

This is a raffle to win this tape deck. It is hosted at raffall.co.uk and is compliant with UK gaming laws.

Story

A customer donated the tape deck to me, and I decided that I would repair the tape deck. After over 20 years, it needed a good clean inside and out, new belts, head clean and light adjustment. At the time, this was a mid-level machine and features Dolby noise reduction, recording level selection and a graphic equalizer. It now plays really well and would suit anyone who has a general interest in cassette tape and vintage Hi-Fi.

I wanted to add-value to the machine and as a life-long Supergrass fan, I decided that I would attempt to get the machine signed by Gaz Coombes at a gig. He kindly signed my tape deck’s lid (see photos) and supported the idea. It was definitely one of the oddest things that he had signed over the years, so I’m sure that this is probably the only ‘signed by Gaz Coombes tape decks in the world’.

St Barnabas House is the hospice for the Worthing, Adur, Arun and Henfield areas (West Sussex, UK). Thanks to support from the local community, adults with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones can enjoy life as fully as possible, for the time they have left together.
Specialist care is provided in people’s own homes across the area, as well as in the hospice building in Worthing. And, when the time comes, St Barnabas House is there to support people at the end of their life so that they can die with dignity in a warm and caring environment of their choice.
