Here's something you seldom see:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ANTIQUE-BUSH-AND-LA ... 2c52fb5120

The remarkable Bush and Lane with their Duo Vox reproducer system- seperate heads on one arm for lateral and vertical discs. Besides that, the case looks far above average: Bush & Lane were piano builders and very high quality

would it be much trouble to attach a photo? I cannot view ebay from work... and it would probably be good to have a shot of this unusual set-up saved to this site as the ebay ad won't last.

I'd rather an Ultona, but neat looking still. :-)

That's a neat setup on the dual reproducers. They even look like brass, not pot metal. Nice machine!

Here's some info. on the vertical cut reproducer.

I've never seen one of these machines but I HAVE played one of their pianos- very classy. The one in this ad even resembles the phonograph a bit:

I remember examining the Edison repro at a phono show, price $50. The spring must have been missing, because the link was loose and I couldn't see how it should've been attached. Now I see.
