Make: Edison
Model: Triumph Model E
Serial # 85790, Motor # 68225
Year(s) Made: 12/31/1911
Original Cost: $75.00
Case/Cabinet Size: 131/4 X 18 X 12 ⅜
Turntable/Mandrel: standard
Reproducer/Sound-Box: Iron & Brass Model-O & 2-min Recorder in original box.
Motor: Triton, 3-spring
Horn Dimensions: Oak Music Master horn
Reproduction Parts: none
Current Value: more than ?
Interesting Facts: Inside the machine was an envelope with the packing slip, manual, cygnet horn adjusting form, and the recorder still in its box. The only items missing from when it left the factory is the oil bottle and brush. Other than that this is a complete Triumph Model-E as it left the Edison factory with all supporting documentation.

Favorite Characteristics: The machine both looks and plays exceptionally well. The iron and brass Model-O reproducer is in exceptional condition.

That is a beautiful Triumph! How nice to have all the documentation with it. And the full setup like it was from the start. Exceptional.

When I bought my Triumph E from the late Jerry Donnell it came with the recorder.It also came with a Diamond B reproducer.I traded a Standard B I had for the Model O I have and traded a No.10 Cygnet bell for a repro No.11 bell.I did this with Tim Fabrizio,who restored it.It's my "Go-To"cylinder machine.edisonplayer

Actually I did forget that the machine also came with a Model-C reproducer and a Diamond-B reproducer and some other spare parts.
