Seems like a decent price, but I don't know much about the values of cylinder machines.

What do you guys think? I've been looking for an cylinder machine, but I don't know if this is a good first cylinder machine. Feel free to pounce on it if you want, as I'm not too eager to spend that kind of denomination of money at the moment.

Looks good to me. I paid $350 for mine and seen them sell for $500 in NC

If it's running (or close) it's a good deal at that price.

This Amberola #75 appears to have a external speed control knob & nickel diamond C reproducer. Thus making it an earlier model 1915-16. Certainly worth what they are asking. Also serves as a cylinder storage cabinet.

This machine is sitting in my garage. Drove down there about a week ago and got it for a very very good price. I posted this machine on the forum Oct 5th. Guess the seller forgot to remove the ad. :D Cheers
