Hello ladies and germs--

I hate to do it, but my room is starting to look like a barn sale. I'm selling my BK Graphophone, 2 minute only with a double-spring motor, probably a 1906 or 1907 model based on my research and guesswork.

This is your chance to hear this wonderfully upgraded, compact, and powerful graphophone--if it doesn't sell here, I will be putting it on eBay at a slightly higher price!

THE UPGRADES:
Cline decals
Amberola 30 diaphragm center on Lyric micas, shortened stylus linkage, LOUD and CLEAR reproduction.
14" brass horn
Topcoated with shellac on cabinet finish to preserve dealer decals & seal Cline decals
Motor gear train cleaned, oiled, & adjusted
New Wyatt Markus belt.
New rubber feet.

The PROBLEMS:
No crank escutcheon
Two dents in lid
I haven't cleaned the lid much
Hate to sell it.


Anyway, there you go. I have pictures but I also have a JOB, and uploading more than a few will be tough before I can get to work. I have it at $400 but if you want to go cheapskate on me I might just accomodate you.
Cheers!


Charles F.

Bump.

Still for sale, still sounds awesome, I'm starting to think about being more flexible with price!
