If you have not heard your cylinder records through Ear Tubes, you will be thrilled with the volume and clarity you have been missing!

Crafted with historically-correct white rubber tubing and a nickel-plated metal reproducer cap!

Only $30 per set + shipping ($7.20 Priority Mail in the U.S.)

To save on shipping, I can bring ear tube sets to phonograph/record shows I attend, but please order ahead to ensure availability.

PM me via this forum with you name, address, and preferred form of payment (check or Paypal Friends & Family). My Paypal address is gpaul2000@aol.com.

You've been keeping secrets, George. ;)

Seriously though, that is great news. The quality is first-rate.

Thanks, Fran and Rene.

When Jean-Paul gave up the ear tube business last year, I was concerned because I had immediate need for a couple of sets. Then, the more I thought about it the idea occurred to me that perhaps I could make my own...and finally I wondered if Jean-Paul would sell me his molds and teach me his techniques. He graciously and enthusiastically agreed, so here I am.

I will admit there's much more to it than I thought. Lots of handwork is required to properly finish the pieces. I estimate that it takes about 1.5 hours total to make one set, which doesn't include curing, heating, or cooling. (Then there's also the cost of materials...) Still, I'm pleased to be able to offer these ear tubes as Jean-Paul has done for so many years.

I was just asked if I had a picture of the actual ear tube sets I'm selling, so I took a couple. (Click the images twice to enlarge.) This is one of the actual sets I have on hand to sell. (I don't really need to state that the Graphophone doesn't come with the ear tubes, do I? ;) )

Please ask any questions you may have about these ear tube sets. I include 2 feet of tubing between the reproducer cap and the "Y" piece, and 1 foot of tubing between the "Y" piece and the ear pieces, so there's plenty if you wish to shorten them.

George,
On one of the drawings it shows ear tubes on a Polyphone set up...I’ve never seen this...Was this done in the Day?

Thanks
Joe
