And Cylinder Related
|The first time I saw a cylinder phonograph was at an antique mall near Jacksonville, FL. In the
small booth that was entirely focused on musical boxes and machines, I saw the Amberola 30.
After the purchase of this Amberola 30, I quickly collected a large number of Edison and
Columbia Graphophone Cylinder Phonographs, all of which were of the more common types.
So, after a few years, and on the advice of serious collectors, I disposed off my entire
collection, except for that first Amberola 30, to focus exclusively on rarer and more interesting
Edison Cylinder Phonographs. My collection now includes an Edison Class M Concert Electric
Coin-op, North American Class M Electric, Edison Windsor Coin-Op, couple of Edison Idelias,
Autophone, couple of early Amberola 1-As with Lyre grille, Edison Opera Phonograph, Edison
School, Edison Polyphone Concert, and couple of Early Edison Suitcase Home with Bacigalupi
And, the search to build on this collection continues with these Wanted Phonographs........
