Edison Diamond Disc 800 Numbers ?

Gang,

Was there any reason that Some Diamond Disc Records start at 80000 ? I have some and they have the "regular" artists that the ones starting at 50,000 do.

Re: Current Source for 3.5 Mil Radius

More info about 3.5 mil for Diamond Disc: As you would expect, for a good record, the 3.5 mil is just right. However, for a worn record, a larger size can improve the sound by riding higher. I have many records so I'll start with the good ones. Later on when I'm feeling rich, I'll get more sizes. Marc

Re: Current Source for 3.5 Mil Radius

Group,

I received the Nagaoka MP-110 and a MP-3.5 Mil conical stylus today.

Set-up works very well with my Diamond Disc records and I will be re-recorded my collection with this set-up. Less noise and better channel balance (L vs R should be 45 degrees). I am using a load of 4 Grams.

Re: Me and My Shadow Podcast

Inigo, Thanks for the comment. I transferred the song using a 3.75 mil radius conical shape stylus and Stanton 500 Cartridge and flat preamp. I did not need to remove many noise events as the record was in good shape. The four singers have a very nice balance to their voices with each other and the ...

Re: Current Source for 3.5 Mil Radius

Orthofan, The 3.0 Mil radius for Diamond Disc records from the Esoteric web site refers to a letter (the web site has a hot link that allows you to read the letter) from the Edison factory during the 1950's that gives the 3.0 mil value. The Edison National Park site had sent out a drawing that shows...

Current Source for 3.5 Mil Radius

Group,

I have used a Stanton 500 cartridge with Expect Stylus (3.75 conical ) in the past.
Are there current sources for a different cartridge and 3.5 mil Conical stylus ? I seem to have many Diamond Disc Records to record.
