WANTED: transportation--Randolph, OH to Washington, DC area

I'm buying a Pathé open horn machine from the good folks at Intertique in Randolph, Ohio; I live in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. The machine, particularly the horn, is too fragile to trust to a commercial carrier. If anyone here would happen to be traveling from there to approximately her...

Re: I don't like it ................... except when ......

This is an interesting thread that I just do not understand. For myself, I like a wide range of music and if I can find the song I like then it does not matter if it's played on an LP or Edison Phonograph. The quality of the music is certainly different when played on a period machine but that by i...

Re: What is this?

It probably was something like the one below. It appears to be for the so-called "inter" or "salon" sized cylinders, which were of a diameter midway between the standard size and what we call "concert" size.

Re: I don't like it ................... except when ......

It has to be said that longer classical works such as symphonies, concertos and complete operas are unsuited to the 78 format. CD's have their uses but for complete operas I want pictures as well as sound, so they have to be on DVD for me. I also insist on DVD's set in the period the composer inten...
