Can a Path`e reproducer be attached to a Victrola VV-XI? The sapphire stylus?

No, not a regular Pathé reproducer, but there is a Pathé made adapter/reproducer that was made specifically to mount on the “J” tube of a Victor to allow Pathé records to be played. They are somewhat hard to find but show up occasionally for sale.

Somebody called the New England Talking Machine Co. made a good reproducer for vertical cut records that directly fits Victor tonearms. Here are photos of mine (fitted to my Victor V and equipped with a Pathé sapphire ball) and the box in which I got it. I don't know for sure if the two originally went together, since one is labeled "Pur-i-tone" and the other "Flexi-tone," but I assume they probably did. Also in the box is a (very brittle) receipt from the New England Talking Machine Co., dated 12-13-24, to one C.J. Duncan of 6 East Mason St., Massillon, Ohio for "1 #11 Repro G.P. @ $3.30."
