Cool credenza clone in Watkinsville, Georgia. I believe this is a Carryola Superphonic Cremona, but I'm not sure. I'm posting photos here because you can see the saxophone shaped horn that goes to the bottom of the cabinet, then up again as its mouth fills the upper half of the grille.

Probably will not sound all that bad, once restored of course.

I've got both kinds of music--classical & rag-time.

I hope someone in Georgia can go get it! This thing is on the brink but it really is a representative of a lost era...the imitators of the Orthophonic technology were everywhere but so few of the machines are intact today.

I hope so too. I honestly believe that horn has great potential. I like the way metal horns sound and this one looks pretty nicely designed. A decent soundbox should give nice punchy sound. It certainly is unusual/rare.
