Many of the jukeboxes being restored today come from the USA where the mains voltage is 110 volts. Converting the voltage is relatively straight forward and you can buy transformers online with little difficulty. The bigger challenge is that the USa uses 60Hz AC mains but we use 50Hz . If you simply use a transformer to convert the voltage for Europe then the issue is that it is 50Hz. This is a problem in certain juke boxes because the motor speed is set by the mains frequency ! So when you connect your jukebox via a simple transformer the records play slow. Yes indeed Elvis Presley did not have that deep a voice !
There is a solution and that is to use a power supply for the record deck motor that turns our 50Hz mains into 60Hz and this is made in Yorkshire !
