I've a couple of Sound Belles here, one with brown mouldings and the other, later I think, in a dove grey, and haven't suspected that. Just took the covers off one to have a look, it's hard to be confident about the nationality of the deck mechanism, but components are primarily British: capacitors from our old friends Hunts, Erie, Dubilier and Daly with a couple from ERO, SenTerCel metal rectifier, Mullard valves, Bulgin mains socket. The Daly electrolytics in particular are almost certain to be misbehaving seriously after 60-odd years (motor on this machine is dated 14.10.59).
