Columbia put the other talking machine companies to shame when it
style. They specialized in pretty decals and eye-catching horns. The
Type "BH" Disc Graphophone was an "updated" version of an earlier model
call the "AJ." The horn has been meticulously rerstored to the
precise appearance of the period -- with our resident artist adding
plump, hand-painted cabbage roses to complete the stunning look.
cabinet has a pretty carrying handle -- the metal finish known as
"oxidized bronze" was very popular from the 1890s through the 'teens.
All components are in fine condition. We have performed a professional, thorough cleaning, polishing and calibration. Our instruments are spotlessly clean. We take no short cuts. 50 years of experience go into everything we sell.
We have taken special care to skillfully rebuild and regulate the soundbox (needle head) to produce big, bold and brilliant music. Where do our competitors fail? One significant factor is the soundbox. We have seen every kind of jury-rigged nonesense that other dealers have perpetrated. And we have fixed their mistakes.

The BH has a smooth-running spring motor, which we have literally spent hours professionally tweaking and adjusting..
The Columbia Type BH Disc Graphophone -- a beautiful, authentic antique talking machine -- look how it shines!
