Very nice machine brianu. I'm glad to see another external horn Edison Cylinder machine. Besides mine. ;)

Someone hasn't dusted there machine off in quite some time. ;) Very nice machine and cabinet though! is the machine all original or has it been restored?

Brianu, a very nice example. I notice she's flanked by a nice Sheraton diamond disc with Edisonic reproducer and an Amberola 75 so you are well equipped to enjoy most of what Edison had to offer musically.

thanks - I held out for the nicest one I could find.

and actually, that's a c-150 on the left... no longer mine. nor is the amberola, which for the past several months has taken up residence with another member of this forum (I think he's posted some youtube videos of it). both were great machines, but of the three, only the triumph will be moving with me.

true, true. and I know, I hate seeing that in people's photos as well... truth be told, I was snapping some shots of a couple of other things for ebay and figured while I had the camera out, I'd just get the rest as well. and actually as I remember, the dust didn't seem nearly as visible until I saw the shots on my computer.

thanks. I should post photos at some point of my only other cylinder player, a 2/4 minute standard - that's the one that I tend to use more often... and it has a great searchlight horn on it that I just recently finished sanding and repainting (the thing went from paintless and corroded to looking close to new).
