The Games Room Company is the official UK distributor for Rock-Ola jukeboxes (one of the most recognised brands in the world), and we’re now the largest retailer of them in the country. Originally founded by Reginald Waldersmith, our company has been selling jukeboxes since 1962, so we know a thing or two about our products!
The Rock-Ola Bubbler CD-8 is one of Rock-Ola’s most instantly recognisable machines. It is an eternal staple of American culture and is the only true authentic brand-new American jukebox on the planet. 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 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 is gloss black and gloss white finishes.
The Bubbler CD-8 is manufactured by Rock-Ola: creators of the only true authentic, brand new American CD jukebox on the planet.
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, our AV technicians fit a Bluetooth dongle which allows a remote connection so that it can be paired with any blue tooth music device (e.g. an iPod or iPhone).
The Bubbler’s sophisticated 5 internal speakers employ a Dual 3-Way system for ‘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 disc loader is modelled closely after the older designs used to play the 45rpm vinyl records in 1950s America, and the 100 Capacity magazine let you to fill the Bubbler CD-8 to the brim with albums of your choice; 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.
Full Music Service: Title cards and Rock-Ola CD Album Cover Artwork book with track index
The CD Bubbler holds a total of 100 CDs but the display window on the front of the machine shows a maximum of 50 title cards, so to view the tracklisting for the entire contents of the jukebox, assuming it’s fully loaded, we suggest purchasing Rockola’s dedicated Album Cover Artwork book with track index, which we can compile for you personally. This bound volume, which also contains all the CD album artwork, then becomes your easy reference guide to use with the remote control from the comfort of your sofa.
Our service can be broken down into several levels, beginning with the simple preparation of the 50 album tracklists to go in the display window and moving up to the more comprehensive package. These options are set out in the drop down menus on the right but are explained in full below.
Stage one: Prepare and type up 50 title cards for the display window. (Each title card contains the complete track listing and numbering for one album)
Stage two: Prepare the 50 title cards as above, which are then duplicated for use in the wallet (or your own binder) along with the 50 title cards for the extra CDs stored in the machine. (total 150 title cards - 50 for the machine and 100 for the separate index) This provides you with a definitive tracklist from which you can make your selections and also includes the album art. (Rock-Ola leather bound book not included)
Stage 3: This is the full package, including everything described in stage two plus the Rock-Ola book itself.
Alternatively, the Rock-Ola volume can be purchased as a stand alone (empty) item without any of the corresponding services outlined above.
The Music Title service does not include the CDs themselves. When adding the listed optional extras and services please be sure to choose only one of the options in the menus, and if you’re unsure about anything please contact us so that we can explain in more detail.
The music itself is an important part of our business, as reflected by our treasured CD library, so we are able to help you source and create the perfect digital playlists – so if you’re a bit stuck for choice, we are only too happy to help!
