Hi, as a DJ in the 80's I loved my Glitter Systems kit, and whilst googling i notice that this site provides most results as to those who know about, own, and may even have for sale Glitter Systems kit.

If you have any that you would consider selling then please let me know as I will pay handsomely...

Also, let me know if you know or have contacts that my consider selling any Glitter Systems kit.

Thank you all very kindly for your help.

Love this forum, many memories.. Great work!!!

Pete

hi, Peter.    Did I reply to you last year about this?   Sorry if I did and didn't get back to you - incredibly traumatic time until recently.......if it wasn't you, then I have a pair of Glitter System speakers I am reluctantly having to part with. they are green glitter, 22"w x 43"h x 13" d.   They are in good used condition for their age and have Goodmans AMD Fane Classic drivers.  Make me a sensible offer?  I am at TW15  near to the M25, M3 amd M4.    Regards  Dave.

hello Dave,

I think you did reply, and we even spoke, as I recall you had upgraded the drivers, which although valuable to you, it pushed the price of the units (when compared to their original state) beyond what they were worth to me...

I am happy to have the conversation again, if you could simply advise on what you would consider taking for them.

Many thanks for reaching out.

Take a look on eBay right now, there's a set of four green glitter speakers for sale - not what you'd all cheap though!

Hi All,

You will love to know that I am still running my Glitter Systems speakers out to events... this was last weekend (40 years after they were made) being powered by three RCF HPS1500 amps...

Look at all the retro awesomeness! If only I could go back to the 80’s and stay there!
I’ve still got some disco supplies equipment, still going strong and used from time to time.

hi, i have the first glitter system console (in white) i believe there is only one! the preamp blew some years back and one side of the remaing power amps needs attention. the tape section is missing from the centre, but otherwise is as supplied by disco supplies in chadwell heath. i also have a pair of glitter bass bins and horns working perfectly and original. would you be interested?

I'm sure I've still got some male to male(!) Bulgin cables, a box full of 40w coloured bulbs and some white perspex sheets kicking about in the garage....

I'm afraid you need over a certain amount of posts (is it 10?) to be able to post pics and access the message service.

What sort of price are you hoping to get for the glitter system?
I sort of want one.... a little bit... maybe
If the price was right.

Well, to be honest I'm kind of open to offers as this may have a certain sentimental value and because of its rarity. The speakers are still in use and I love 'em so it would have to be a serious offer to get me to part with them!... Hope this helps

There was a pair on Ebay for a stupid figure of £500 a while back...bear in mind they only contain 12" Fane pop50's, you really would have to be in love with the Glitter look to pay that for something containing £10 worth of drivers!

I don’t want a glitter system that bad, certainly wouldn’t pay £500 for one. Would be more for my own interest/nostalgia/ just because I kinda like it rather than to use regularly for gigs, as such could never justify spending any serious money.

I have a pair of Silver Glitter System Speakers for sale, please see attached picture. Fully Tested all four tweeters and crossovers replaced. They were the last pair manufactured and sold by Disco Supplies in 1985 (I know as I worked there at the time). Best wishes out to all old customers including Simon Harris and the bosses Rick Marston, Bill Platten and workmates Little Bill Barnard and Frank GREAT TIMES. Steve

I managed to find the last pair of glitter speakers made the 12” McKenzie drivers all in good condition and sounding great but the piezo drivers and crossovers needed replacing so not an expensive job. I thin I re sold to a vintage Record Shop
