Ha ha cheers . Just need to find someone who can rewire my rb300 . Maybe a guy with three large terrapins
Two, and I wouldn't trust then to do a rewire. Pretty useless at anything but being a nuisance.

The RB3000 shouldn't be too hard to rewire, much easier than arms with removable headshells. Other option, if you are not confident enough to attempt a rewire, sell it as is and put the money towards a rewired one.

AFAIK there was only one version of the Rebel, but with various finishes like exotic wood veneers, hammerite etc :-k

The more expensive 'Revolver Turntable' came with or without an arm, and with the same bewildering array if finishes.

There's a review of the Rebel here:

FWIW a schoolteacher friend of mine had one back in the 90's and loved it.
I had one with a ADC LMF-1 arm and hammerite finish, sounded okay but the motor was not very strong. When I tried selling it my listing got removed. Not allowed to sell revolvers in the UK, apparently.

There is an article in November edition of hi-fi news saying they brought a rebel 2 out in approved at £995 . I thought this may have been a misprint

Nope, it looks like Revolver are making turntables again, but with 2019 prices (and snazzy new platter/Rega arm).
