The striking Seeburg HF100 R came out in 1954 and like its slightly earlier sister machine, the HF100G, it can be seen as the end of an era for this highly regarded jukebox manufacturer. Their V-200 was introduced shortly afterwards and the new machine featured a radical overhaul of the internal workings.
One thing which didn’t change was Seeburg’s trademark record storage system, which not only held the disks in a vertical row but also played them in the same orientation. (The vast majority of jukeboxes would of course deposit the record on a more conventional horizontal turntable) The HF100R plays up to 50 vinyl ’45s, giving 100 selections, and if you need help sourcing particular tracks we can take care of that for you too.
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 Pinball Hives Company, and the point we wish to get across above all others is that there’s a reason for this. In this business Pinball Hives 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.
