Black Sony Walkman WM-20. Surely the prettiest machine Sony ever produced – isn’t this Black WM-20 absolutely stunning! The classic Walkman, the one that everyone wants and there are few better examples of a WM-20 than this – it’s mint and plays as good as the day it was new! These commonly suffer from cracked gears – which either stop it from playing entirely or mean it plays with a wobble – this one has 2 perfect gears and is ready for it’s next 40 years! Unlike everyone else out there I price my Walkman’s fairly – I just need to get my slice of the pie – this is priced to sell quickly and cheaper that the other Refurbished WM-20’s on. I usually sell these Black WM-20’s within hours of listing – so if you don’t pull the trigger then someone else will. As with all my refurbished Walkmans you don’t have to take my work for how good they sound because I provide you with a video so you can hear for yourself. I’m not a professional sound engineer – I feed the output from the walkman into the mic input on my Canon DSLR. These are complex analogue machines in a digital world – the old belt residue must be completely and meticulously removed – otherwise the new belt will wobble causing wow and flutter. In lovely used condition – no significant scratches, dents or faded letting – please study the pictures carefully. Mechanically the belt had turned to goo so the old belt residue has been meticulously cleaned and a new belt installed – the head, roller and capstan have been cleaned – so it now plays perfectly, in stereo, at the right speed with no wow or flutter, it rewinds and fast-forwards exactly as it should. The volume potentiometer has been cleaned so the volume adjusts smoothly without crackle or dropout. It still has the battery cover and the battery terminals are corrosion free. Only tiny issue – rewind doesn’t always engage first time. This Walkman is perfectly useable playing as good as the day it was new nearly 40 years ago! I have 10 years experience refurbishing 100’s of Walkmans! You get what you pay for – there won’t be any disappointment when it arrives – it will work as described! If it IS as described and you change your mind – relist it yourself and feel free to reuse my Listing, Pictures and Video Link – you’ll probably make a profit! I’m not an audio engineer which is why I include a video so you can hear it play and judge for yourself. I do not extensively test these over periods of hours/days – I don’t have the time. My only guarantee is that it should work as you see in the video when it arrives. All items will be bubble wrapped and dispatched in a rigid cardboard box to ensure that they reach you without any damage in transit. See my other auctions for loads more cool Sony Walkmans.
