The NSM Festival holds 80 7” singles providing a total of 160 selections and although quite dark when compared to many other machines it’ll brighten up the room with its outstanding sound, courtesy of its 125 watt per channel amplifier and 8 loudspeakers.The selections are made using a button panel at the top of the jukebox and like many of its predecessors, the Festival has a fully visible mechanism allowing you to enjoy watching records being selected and delivered to the turntable.
At 98 cms wide it’s quite a large machine, but as the styling and colours are more subdued than most jukeboxes there’s no danger of this piece completely dominating the room.
Few companies can boast the rich heritage of NSM Music. Well into its seventh decade, NSM Music continues to exceed the expectations of its three founding members Nack, Schulze and Menke, who created the Company in Germany to produce American-style jukeboxes in the 1950s.
The Company has gained an enviable reputation for combining aesthetics with technology and were responsible for many breakthroughs in the jukebox music industry ranging from state of the art CD changing devices to the most attractive interactive digital jukeboxes on the market.
The 1970s was the golden age of NSM jukeboxes, when style and art met head-on with the the heady sounds of the decade. The period 1970-82 saw the best of the vinyl era with boxes which fitted in with contemporary furniture such as the stylish ’Consul’ and ‘Prestige’ ranges.
The transition to CD technology was not a problem for NSM,who came up with impressive patented CD technology,which powered iconic machines such as Digital Thunder,Silver Sky and the Galaxy range.
Allow us to explain how and why we go to such extreme lengths when repairing and restoring vintage games and jukeboxes.
Over the years we are fortunate enough to have gathered together a select few individuals whose enthusiasm for jukeboxes, pinball machines and vintage arcade games ensures that they are never less than 100% committed to the task in hand. They quite simply love breathing new life into old circuitry and want to see as many of these classic pieces preserved for future generations as possible.
Not for them the perfunctory checklists and proverbial ‘tyre kicking’ which pass for an inspection at other dealers but instead an unflinching determination to get to grips with the detail. This usually begins with a thorough strip down of the machine and a forensic examination of the internal workings. They’ll be aware of the particular quirks and foibles of any given piece and instead of just replacing failed parts they’ll always go the extra mile, swapping out components which are likely to fail in the near future.
An obvious comparison would be between a classic car which remains on show in a garage and one that you can actually enjoy driving.
Rare though many of these machines are, rarer still are the examples which have been properly restored or can truthfully be said to be in full working order. It goes without saying that when unrestored machines come up for sale online or at auction, they’ll often be priced rather lower than the machines sold by The Games Room Company, and the point we wish to get across above all others is that there’s a reason for this.
In this business The Games Room Company’s reputation is second to none, and as it’s been hard won over the years it’s something we never take for granted. Every machine that goes off to a customer, be they corporate or private, is a potential advertisement for the business and if we didn’t do our job properly then we wouldn’t have the high number of loyal, returning customers that we do.
We’re justly proud of our One Year Parts and Labour Warranty, which extends to on-site visits so if your machine does require some attention, you won’t necessarily have to endure the pain of separation.
We’ve always recognised that with specialised products such as these the after sales service is just as important as the initial sale. It takes a long time to build a reputation and over the years our commitment has won us not just the loyalty of our clients but also the trust of the last remaining American Jukebox manufacturer, Rockola, who in 2014 appointed us as their Exclusive British dealer.
Music itself is an important part of our business, as reflected by our treasured vinyl library, so we are able to help you source and create the perfect playlist. We also make all of the title cards in original typewriter font – so if you’re a bit stuck for choice, we are only too happy to help!
The Games Room Company is one of the oldest jukebox dealers in the country. Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, first learned about jukeboxes in the early 1950s when we were servicing jukeboxes on American Air Force bases. We’ve been selling jukeboxes since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you on any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
