While I know that took quite a few more pictures than I did (and no doubt better ones—I never claim to be any good with a camera; my skills are only with manipulating images in ), here are a few images to tide you over until he posts a video of his photographs.

These images are of items that brought to the meeting and graciously gave me permission to photograph. I plan on cutting out both the cylinder box and the fiber needle cutter.


He also featured a few Columbia machines, although sadly I should have taken notes as to which were whose (or what they were). Here is a very interesting Columbia disc phonograph that he generously shared with us:


I will be posting more photos that I took later today (as I need to duck out in a few minutes), but I cannot thank and enough for inviting me to attend, or for taking the time to educate me on a number of things, including the origin of his user name.

and his wife were excellent hosts, and I was glad to get to meet her, in addition to all of the other people who attended the meeting.

Stay tuned for more images.

Here are 5 more photographs from the meeting; I had photographed this machine primarily for , as he is quite enamored with the giant horns...


Regrettably, I could not tell you the model of the Columbia cylinder machine, and I do not remember whose machine it was, but the horn was definitely stunning to see in person.

’s Amberola 1-A (which can also be seen as his avatar) appears in the second photo, as well as , which was the first phonograph I cut out specifically for use on a forum.

Stay tuned for more!

I have heard a well restored (ala Paul Baker) Columbia BC with large horn like that in a large exibitiion hall at the Union Illinois phonograph show some years back. It DID make your ears bleed. As I recall he did not get to play it much because as soon as he started it up a few people started complaining. To me it was great.

The first phonograph shown in this thread is a Columbia Model AH Graphophone (2nd Style) from 1905. It has a black and brass bell horn and a Columbia Analyzing Reproducer. I found out after I purchased it on ebay, that the Horn, reproducer and horn elbow were actually from a Talk-o-phone. So after some negotiations with the seller, who never disclosed these facts in his auction, I received a fair credit amount, sufficient to buy a Columbia Analyzing reproducer which was correct for this Graphophone. I Kept the Talk-O-Phone horn which does look very nice with this machine. I still have the
Talk-O-phone reproducer, in case some day I happen across a Talk-O-Phone at a bargain price which needs one.

It was a great time with seldom seen Columbia machines! Many thanks to all the members that made the effort to bring these fantastic Graphophones.

Here are a few more photos from the meeting, of a pair of Columbia phonographs shared with us by .

The first machine is a Columbia AB, called ‘the Macdonald’ (which is rare because only 150 survive according to Howard Hazelcorn, the author and expert on Columbia phonographs), and it is pictured with the adapter to play Concert cylinders.


And the second is a Columbia Q ‘the second style’ nickeled horn, with a repro cast-nickel plated base. These reproduction bases were produced by Aaron Cramer.


The machine in the background is the Columbia Model AH Graphophone (2nd Style), which was the first machine pictured in this thread. Regrettably, I do not remember which machine was hiding under the table.

Information on the above cylinder machines was provided by , who knows far more about these machines than I do. I have a few more photos (I should have taken more) that I will try to get up soon.

Thanks again to for having me at this meeting.
