Here are some poor copies of a flyer that lists it at $35, but does not even use the Concert name (yet?).

Nice flyer, Andreas.

Boy, I wish these things were all dated! :?

In George's picture you can see the weird backmount with a solid tonearm. Apparently to avoid patent problems, the tonearm does not have a U tube or joint for up and down motion, but rather the backmount has a swivel connection to the one piece tonearm... The crank should be an S type as shown in the picture.

This exactly like the machine I have, (without some parts). I have the horn and the elbow and am just missing the backmount, tone arm, reproducer, and crank. Well, I guess I will have to start looking around for these parts. I am truly fascinating with the idea that it started out as a front mount and was converted in factory to a rear mount. Definately worth some research. Thanks everyone for all the help you have provided. I have downloaded pictures of your machine so I can see what I need to find.

I have the same machine as shown in Andreas' brochure. It has the crank on the left and is serial number 14432. I have worked on a few different Zonophone projects over the years. I have an extra tonearm (minus the round disc for the Reproducer mount). And I have the apparatus that connects to the back bracket. This part allows the tone arm to pivot up and down. I compared the parts to my Zonophone Concert,
and it is the proper length tonearm.
