Early Pathé model. Help?

Recently bought it at an auction. It came with a detached stylus which I glued back on, put some oil on where the horn attaches on the rods and works perfectly. I’ve been researching Pathé models online but I found nothing like this? Bought for £290 was that a good price? Help would be appreciated

Re: Edison Concert Phonograph With Unknown parts

You must get a lot of pocket-money! :-) It is an Edison Bell Duplex, meaning you can remove the concert mandrel and with a special adaptor also play standard size wax cylinders. Have not seen this case style in Edison Bell catalogs. Nonetheless a great first machine! I've added a pic so one can cle...

Edison Concert Phonograph With Unknown parts

I came across a concert phonograph (I’m getting in to the hobby I’m 13 years old) with a silver tube fitted where the reproducer should go saying “BEETHOVEN ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT LTD 230 VOLT 1500 WATT NEVER CONNECT TO MAINS” I can’t read the whole thing yet because the tube is stuck where the reproduc...
