Any help on which machine this reproducer belongs to would really be appreciated. It has a locating pin on the rear so I think it goes to a front mount machine.
Thanks in advance,

Blain

Could it be an aftermarket soundbox?

I wish I could give you a specific answer to your question but I've never seen a reproducer like yours. But that doesn't stop me from speculating. I also think it was an aftermarket reproducer. Sone of the early sound boxes, that we love to find today, were actually poor performers and difficult to service. It's possible that your reproducer was a viable alternative for owners to improve the performance of their machine. If this is true your reproducer would be correct on most any front mount machine. That's my best guess.

Looks like it might be from a Symphony (Model L) : https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ ... -502377343

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

Cool!

That's a pretty phonograph, would look swell all restored up. I like the Art Nouveau font of the reproducer face.
