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.
The City II, which was in production between 1984 and 1987, was one of their most popular models and had a capacity of 80 45rpm records, providing 160 selections. NSM gained an enviable reputation for combining aesthetics with technology and in this model they come together beautifully. The low profile cabinet with its expansive glass ‘window’ allows everyone to see into the innermost workings, hypnotising children and adults alike.
This example has been immaculately restored by the experts at our own workshop and is of course in perfect working order, having been stripped down, cleaned and thoroughly refurbished. As part of this process the moving parts have been through a cleansing sonic bath and the machinery has undergone an electro-mechanical overhaul. The lighting has been enhanced to brighten up the interior so one could arguably say that she looks better now than the day she left the factory!
Music itself is an important part of our business, as evidenced by our treasured library of ’45s. We are able to assist you in sourcing your favourite records or if you’re a bit stuck for choice, we are only too happy to make recommendations!
