Pictures would help out a lot with your concerns.

I may be wrong, but I think that he wants you to post pictures.

Exactly. But, if I had any, I probably wouldn't have started the thread :D
Some folks already helped me out and I have ordered papers from Mr. O'Rouke. I am looking forward to seeing the visual references to the cabinets.

Another option is the Pooley ejector cabinet. There is one for sale in the classified section of this site, (His Masters Voice). That cabinet has lots of storage for 10 and 12” records and if you view the post you can see what it looks like with a Victor VI on top.

Great info. I will check it out. Thank you!

I also just discovered that Victrola didn't make a specific cabinet for the external horn models like the Vic VI.


For clarity’s sake, you should know that “Victrola” didn’t make anything. ‘Victrola’ refers specifically to a line of phonographs produced by the Victor Talking Machine Company that had horns concealed within their cabinets. Before producing the Victrola in 1906, Victor produced external horn phonographs, your Victor VI being one example. In fact, the earliest Victrolas — the Type VTLA — we’re essentially cabinetized Victor VI and shared many components including the motor, crank, brake, speed control, turntable, taper arm, and reproducer.

Hi John,

Basically, I was wondering if Talking Machine Company and Herzog were the only producers of cabinets considered to be a "correct" or "matching" companion to the Vic VI

Thank you for helpful information, photos and book reference!


The only "correct" cabinet would be one that's made of mahogany and of an appropriate size for a VI. Yes, as you've learned, some companies offered cabinets meant to be specifically complimentary to a Victor VI, (as well as cabinets for other Victor models). It's nice to have one of those, but to not have one would not be considered "incorrect". Perhaps the more correct term would be "appropriate".

And, by the way, the photos that folks would like you to post, are those of your phonograph. We understand that you have no cabinet to post photos of. While we all know what a Victor VI looks like, it's always fun to see a newly found example.

Although they can be hard to find. The mahogany cabinets with the fluted corners and gold capitols make for a great matching setup.
