Not exactly a Talking Machine, but might be of interest...

I think a jukebox falls well within the definition of a "talking machine"... ;)

Those are great machines when they are restored. They are almost bullet proof and work well if put togehet right. I think that is one of the first era juke boxes. Tom B

I asked a jukebox friend of mine about that thing, and he just said to make sure it's all there as they are pretty hard to find parts for, the pickup has a crystal cartridge in it so that issue would have to be dealt with. And that they are really heavy and NOT to lay it down when moving it. I don't want it, I just saw it up there and thought he might be interested in the thing. He isn't interested in it at all either.

It's a 1936 Rockola Regular B. Great machine! When properly rebuilt, they play reliably and sound fantastic. We have had one for 34 years and it gets demonstrated about every two years. It always plays fine.
In my opinion, this one is valued at about $400 in its current condition, and about $1500 restored.
