STANDARD DISC TALKING MACHINE
One of the Midwestern brands of disc talking machine at the turn of the 20th century was "Standard Disc" of Chicago. Standard instruments were in fact designed and built by the Columbia Phonograph Co., who were justly famous in their own right as high quality manufacturers. We believe the "Model A" taking machine is about the most pleasing, plump, peppy and perfectly balanced instrument you can find! The horn is original, and we have painstakingly restored it -- using our expertise acquired by trial and experimentation over the past 43 years, we have given the curvaceous flower horn a sparkling translucent red finish, matching precisely the glowing color used in the early 20th century.
Here we see the clean. crisp and carefully calibrated components that produce powerful reproduction from the record. The cabinet has its original finish, the black support bracket still shows its unobtrusive gold decoration, the metal hardware components are in especially well-preserved, original condition. Of course, we have rebuilt and painstakingly calibrated the soundbox to produce clear, bright, bold music.
Our thoroughly restored talking machine could bring a smile to the face of any Scrooge. The horn is especially charming, and the translucent crimson finish delights the eye. This instrument will play one 10" diameter 78 rpm record per winding, the motor is strong and quiet. Do not mistake our carefully adjusted, meticulously restored instrument for the junk you find on eBay -- our machines work properly and sound great! Unlike other sellers on the Internet, from phonophan you won't get "Gee, I don't know nothin about these here phonographs, but it sure looks like a nice one"!
