New for 2022 is the recently released 'Crystal' version of the incredibly popular Vinyl 45 Bubbler.
The 'Crystal' model has a bi-metallic design featuring clear acrylic pilasters and an extra rotating colour cylinder. The overall aesthetics are based upon the hugely popular 90th Edition and the clear acrylic panels give the crystal jukebox an unprecedented sharp, clean look which really stands out. The brushed aluminium finish almost shimmers and is really striking, especially when reflecting coloured light.
Even from a distance the Crystal Edition is markedly different from its stablemates in appearance, with the clear casings on the side pilasters giving the Bubbler a brighter and sharper visual edge. All in all, it’s a stunning offering from America's last remaining jukebox manufacturer and a piece that really needs to be seen up close to be truly appreciated.
Since 2019 The Games Room Company has been the owner of Rock-Ola jukeboxes in California, which is one of the most recognised brands in the world, and we’re now the largest retailer of them too. Our CEO, Alexander Walder-Smith, has followed in his father's footsteps and the family have been selling jukeboxes since 1962 so we know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you with any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
The Rock-Ola Bubbler 45 rpm Vinyl Jukebox is the only authentic brand new American Jukebox on the planet! It plays 100 x 45rpm vinyl records as well as having the ability to stream music via Bluetooth. Our best ever sounding Jukebox with 5 speakers powered by a 425 watt amplifier. This Jukebox has the best sound, the most selections and is what you would expect from the greatest Jukebox company that gave its name to Rock n Roll.
This jukebox has 5 speakers: 2 mid range, a sub and 2 tweeters. It delivers dual 3-way system or live performance sound. It also has external speaker connections.
Drawing inspiration from the Wurlitzer 1015, the world’s first ‘original jukebox’, this classic design has endured over 50 years with very few changes, and continues to be one of the Games Room Company’s most popular products. The Bubbler shares the Wurlitzer’s famous grille, which is made from die-cast metal and gets its name from the pockets of air that float up to the top of the eight bubble tubes lining the machine. These bubbles slide through the deep, hypnotising colours created by the rotating pilasters, making the Bubbler as enchanting to the eye as it is to the ear. This beautiful, iconic machine is robust too, with a strong hand-built cabinet which comes in a choice of light oak, walnut, or satin black, which allows some of the wood grain to show through. Also available at a slightly higher cost are gloss black and gloss white finishes.
It has the honour of having the best sound quality of any new jukebox, with its many innovative features all working in conjunction to bring you perfect sound quality at both high and low volumes. As standard it is fitted with a Bluetooth dongle which allows a remote connection so that it can be paired with any blue tooth music device (e.g. iPhone).
The Bubbler’s sophisticated 3 internal speakers, utilize a 10” dual sub-woofer and 2 x 5¼ “ mid-range speakers with 1” tweeters for a ‘Live Performance Reproduction’, creating a sound quality so perfect that you can close your eyes and swear your favourite musicians were playing the music right there in the room with you. The authentic vinyl record carousel is modelled on one of Rock-Ola’s time honoured 20th century designs, the 100 record capacity will give you 200 x 7” records selections (A and B sides); allowing you to enjoy your favourite artists in perfect quality, from the comfort of your home. It is also possible to link the Bubbler to an existing in-house integrated music system, such as Sonos and Control4®.
The Vinyl 45 rpm Bubbler has the best visual display of any brand new jukebox and can display 40 vinyl titles at any time, at the touch of a button the pages rotate to display the next 40 titles. We use the correct industry standard title display cards that have been around since vinyl 45rpms first started back in the 50’s, selections can be made from the keyboard on the front of the Jukebox or from the comfort of your own armchair by remote control.
Music and Title Cards Pricing
The charge for vintage records is £15 + VAT per record, this covers most records however some are highly collectable for which we have to pay a premium and are charge at a higher price. The title card service is £120 + VAT for a handmade set regardless of the selection quantity.
It is quite an involved process supply records as we buy them in from dealers or collectors, they will only guarantee the "A" side, so often many records do not pass with us because we always supply records with playable "B" sides as well as the "A".
The centres are then cut (big hole centres) which also leads to some breakage as some of the records split due to their age. Finally they are hand washed and then played both "A" and "B" side on a gramophone for sound quality, only then are they fit to go on the Jukebox. The final check is again playing "A" and "B" side as you would hear it on your Jukebox.
It's all about delivering good quality sound for our clients and if you are investing in a vinyl jukebox the standard of the records have to demonstrate the high standard of our restorations.
